The game, which was announced back in June, lets you interact with Sims belonging to your Facebook friends as you guide your Sim through their life. You can share your activity within the game with your Facebook friends and keep everyone up to date on what is happening with your Sim. The game is free to play, but you can pay for virtual goods such as clothes and items to decorate your home.
“The Sims Social” underlines the fact that EA is focusing more on social gaming. Indeed, the company has acquired PopCap Games, one of the biggest social gaming developers around, for a sum that could rise to $1.3 billion.
I would guess that “The Sims Social” will prove to be hugely popular among Facebook users as “The Sims” is one of the biggest gaming franchises in history. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have a home to build.
You can check out “The Sims Social” for yourself by installing the Facebook app.
