EA Press Release:
EA Announces Plans for The Sims Bustin' Out on All Current-Generation Console
Systems announced that The Sims™ Bustin' Out is in development for the
PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system, the Xbox™ video game
system from Microsoft, and the Nintendo GameCube™. The Sims is making
a big return to consoles with The Sims Bustin' Out. For the first time, Sims
console players will have the ability to get their Sims out of the house and
into all-new locations to play, work, and meet a cast of outrageous new characters.
The Sims Bustin' Out PlayStation 2 console version will be unveiled to industry
insiders on May 13th at the Electronic Entertainment Exposition in Los Angeles.
The game is scheduled to be released simultaneously on all current- generation
console platforms in early 2004.
"We're giving our fans what they've been asking for, the excitement of getting out of the house to explore new locations, meet wild new characters, and experience new storylines," said Sinjin Bain, Vice President and Executive Producer of the game at EA's Maxis™ studio. "The Sims Bustin' Out has ten times more replay value than the first Sims console game."
The Sims Bustin' Out features an all-new neighborhood with over a dozen new unlockable locations and a cast of over 40 new zany characters to socialize with. Players will purchase a car or scooter in order to get out of the house and head to the Gym to work out with exercise fanatic Goldie Toane or to Club Rubb to rave with club owner Bing Bling. Players will be able to crash parties, create havoc, or just drive their neighbors crazy!
Sims console players will be able to unlock and collect 80 new social moves like "Towel Snap" and "Moonwalk Dancing" that will add to the distinct character of a Sim. Players can unlock hundreds of new objects such as a Climbing Wall and a High Dive to test their skills outside the house.
Players can choose from ten new careers including Mobster, Athlete, Mad Scientist, and Fashion Victim. Depending on what career track you choose there are now a variety of different ways to win the game. Players will have the ability to go back and forth through different careers and levels to unlock objects and locations. Players can play with or against friends in two-player mode, which is available throughout the entire game. The Sims Bustin' Out also features level-based gameplay.
Like never before, Sims characters on the console will have distinct and noticeable personality that will affect gameplay. For example, a shy Sim will do a timid dance at the dance club, but an outgoing Sim will be rocking around the dance floor, showing off their moves.
The new controller-base game interface makes manipulating the Sims through the triumphs and tribulations of their daily lives both easy and amusing. All console versions will have memory card support so players can take their Sims over to a friend's house.
