The Sims 3 Ambitions Offers New Career Choices for Mac/PC Game

Electronic Arts on Thursday announced that this June it will launch the second Sims 3 expansion pack, Ambitions, for Mac and PC, allowing players to not only pursue new careers but also make choices while at work, such as being a heroic firefighter. Those decisions impact Sims’ lives when they return home.

Other careers revealed by EA include hunting down vengeful spirits as a ghost hunter, making wild gadgets as an inventor, and solving mysteries as an investigator. Architects will be able to change the look and feel of their towns, and a new tattoo system will let all Sims express themselves with body art. EA also noted that careers will be more robust than previously possible, with players able to work for good or evil, climb the ladder or be a slacker, and more.

Pricing and a specific release date were not revealed. EA said that The Sims 3 Ambitions will also hit the App Store in late 2010 – unlike the version for Mac and PC, it won’t require the base game to play.
