Electronic Arts has just released a “behind the scenes” video presenting the upcoming revolution in games: The Sims 3. By watching the video below, you will see that character movement is still a bit laggy and unnatural and… unfinished (but that is not a real problem since there’s still a lot of time left for development). Also, the video presents the character creation tool and, just as promised, it appears to have everything we could ever want – our Sims 3 experience will certainly be a very customizable one! But just look at the video and see for yourself!

According to previous reports, The Sims 3 will feature a brand new game engine that will allow us to freely explore the neighborhoods as well as the surrounding beach, mountains and town center. Also, the neighborhood is alive and constantly evolving so what happens to a Sim on one side of the neighborhood could impact your Sims on the other side of town.

Additionally, you can enjoy the challenge of short-term and long-term goals and then reap the rewards! Based on personality traits, skills and career choices, your Sims have short and long term Wishes that provide constant challenges, things to do and achieve – you know the drill. You have the ultimate freedom to choose whether to fulfill their destiny, giving them lifetime happiness and rewards or not! Will your Sim skyrocket from latrine cleaner to an astronaut, go from being a rabid fan to a sports legend or will you choose an alternate destiny? It’s all up to you!
