The Sims 3 Showtime Screens 4 January 2012

Perform tricks and sing your way to fame in Starlight Shores, an all-new world that showcases your Sims' hidden talent
Electronic Arts sent us four fresh screenshots from The Sims 3 Showtime, a new expansion pack for The Sim 3 developed by The Sims Studio and scheduled to be launched worldwide in March 2012, for PC and Mac. The Sims 3 Showtime allows players to connect and share with their friends and fellow fans of The Sims without ever leaving the game. Players will venture into a new world and live the dream as singers, acrobats, magicians and DJs. Using the all-new SimPort feature, players can send their Sim into a friend's game to perform in their world, book gigs in their friends' town, go on tour, and be reviewed. Along the way, players can earn rewards for achieving goals and accomplishing special challenges that can be tracked and shared via in-game social wall posts. Players have the opportunity to post their Sims' successes, share gameplay techniques, create wishlists and send gifts, search for new friends and share memories through their in-game news feeds and as e-cards.
