Shocking news, Sims 2 fans! A new expansion pack is being primed for release on PC this September, and will go by the name of Bon Voyage.
The latest in the incredibly long line of add-ons for the 2004 title (is it eight or nine now? We've lost count) will allow players to "whisk their Sims away on exciting trips to discover exotic locations, including the Far East, Rustic Mountaintops, and even a Tropical Island," according to EA's press blurb.
Apparently your Sims will be able to "relax and rejuvenate" in various ways, such as "exploring the culture of the Far East, building sand castles, meditating in the Zen garden after a visit to the pool, and camping with the family on a pristine mountaintop". Reciting The Sound of Music and dancing like a Baboon.
Bon Voyage will allow players to "quickly transform their Sims from bumbling tourists to savvy international travellers". Your Sims will "learn new customs including local greetings and traditional dance". Let's hope they don't send them to Lewisham on a Friday night.
"The Sims 2 Bon Voyage brings so many new experiences and locations to the game, there's almost no end to the surprises that fans and their Sims are going to discover," said EA's Rod Humble. Wicked name, Rod.
