The Sims is celebrating ten years since the first instalment in the series was released.
Electronic Arts is working on another expansion pack for the PC version of The Sims 2. "Seasons" will introduce all forms of weather, and lots of new contextual items and activities for your little virtual people.
Listed as "coming soon" on the EA website, Seasons sounds very outdoorsy - with snowball fights, chasing fireflies, jumping in leaf piles, going ice-skating, harvesting fruit and veg and gardening listed among the things you'll be able to get up to.
You'll have to beware though, because the conditions can change in an instant, with inclement alternatives to happy summer/winter/autumn/spring days including those racked with every-flavour storms - snowy, thunderous, and peppered with hailstones.
