A very surprising update has been announced today for The Sims 3: Supernatural is the name of the update and it brings two characters that we never thought we’ll be seeing in the game (although I am sure many of us wanted them both): a fluttering fairy and a shuffling zombie!

The Sims 3 Supernatural is already available for pre-order from the EA Origin website (click here to check it out) and you can find out more details about the fairies and zombies in the upcoming expansion below:

Fairies are fickle and magical supernaturals with an innate connection to the natural world. From the start of the game, fairies will naturally appear as human-like creatures with fluttering wings. Through special interactions they will be able to transform into their true form which resembles a glowing insect that is miniscule in size. Fairies can be created in Create A Sim and have a slew of new customization options available that range from choosing the shape and color of their wings to adjusting the pointiness of their ears. Fairies often bestow gifts to others and carry special auras that increase their skills as well as the skills of those around them.

In contrast to the fairies, The Sims 3 Supernatural also brings zombies to the game. These lumbering creatures have just two things on their mind: brains and grains! As they shuffle through the neighborhood, zombies attempt to nibble on Sims and pick at their well-manicured planter boxes. Not even other supernatural Sims are immune to zombification! A bite from one of these brain-hungry creatures can leave your Sims with temporary or long-lasting effects. But there’s a cure, so your Sim won’t remain a zombie forever, as long as you find the right ingredients to brew an elixir and change them back!

It all sounds really interesting, so make sure you start saving some money for The Sims 3 Supernatural which is coming soon. Unfortunately, there is no exact date set yet.
