1:21 of in-game footage
Electronic Arts has released the first trailer for Ambitions, a new expansion pack for The Sims 3 set to be available in June 2010. The Sims 3 Ambitions allows players to pursue a variety of exciting paths and careers in their Sims' lives that in turn affect their overall gameplay experience and neighborhood. While on the job, the player has direct control over their Sims' work and can choose how to spend their days. Players can opt to make house calls and save lives as a doctor or choose the devious route and test experimental medicine on patients, be the hero firefighter tackling raging infernos or smashing everything in sight at the victim's home with an axe, or take a shot at solving cases as an investigator, nicely convincing sources to divulge secrets or roughing up perpetrators in a dark alley to get information. In related news, EA announced that Rise Against is the first band to be featured in game with their song "Savior" recording in Simlish (press 'read more' for details).
