The Sims Pets 3 POSTED BY EA Staff ON 10/20/2011

The Sims 3 Pets Has Arrived

While adopting a pet usually means giving up some freedoms – like the freedom to wear something not covered in cat hair – The Sims 3 Pets is all about adding to them. Starting with today’s launch, Sims 3 players can choose their purr-fect companion from a brand new digital menagerie that includes dogs, cats, and even horses.

Whether you like them barking, meowing, or neighing, there’s a pet for every Sim. The Sims 3 Pets introduces a multitude of animal breeds and species to choose from, along with the ability to tailor every facet of your pet. Choose their traits, personalities, and wishes, and then unleash them on a world filled with brand new locations.
