, Electronic Arts
announced the availability of Red Cross Relief Centre
, a new DLC (downloadable content) for The Sims 3
that includes a Red Cross Relief Centre and two vehicles that will travel around a player's city in response to natural disasters. When a meteor strikes, an earthquake occurs or a tornado touches down, Red Cross tents will appear in various locations throughout a player's city. Sims that would have been critically injured are instead cared for at the Red Cross tents. As the city recovers from the natural disaster, the tents will disappear. Each disappearing tent will then release 10 healthy Sims back into a city. Ambulances, fire trucks and police cars will protect a player's city in addition to Red Cross services.
This downloadable content is available for £7.99 - EA will give a minimum of 80% of proceeds to the Red Cross.
