I can finally say it – we have a new world coming out, and it’s called The Sims 3 Aurora Skies!!

There are so many aspects of this world that are amazing – but I’ll leave a few of the details for the weeks to come.

My favorite thing about Aurora Skies? Hands down? The northern lights (or Aurora Borealis to some).  If you have any cloud cover at night in Aurora Skies – you’ll see the northern lights. The more clouds in the sky – the brighter it looks — up to a certain point! Thick, stormy clouds won’t show the northern lights. If you watch the skies long enough, you’ll notice that it’ll change colors as well.

Another thing that I really like about this world is the fact that there’s so much natural beauty. There’s steam actually rising from the geothermal lake, you walk to the edge of the waterfall and get an amazing view of the entire world, and the houses are enormous – which is perfect since I like building large families.

That’s all I’m going to divulge for now regarding Aurora Skies. You’ll find more about premium content and the venues soon. Keep your eyes peeled!

Don’t forget to get The Sims 3 Aurora Skies when it comes out on the Sims 3 Store on February 21, 2013.
