In an attempt to satisfy they’re fan-base, EA has just announced an agreement made between them and Renault-The french car manufacturer. This deal would supposedly allow for EA to “integrate Renault’s forthcoming range of concept cars and other electronic vehicles into the game on both the PC and Mac.
“The Sims 3 players have demonstrated consistent enthusiasm for bringing cool ‘real world’ brands into their virtual world,” said Steve Seabolt, VP of Global Brand Development for The Sims. “We’re excited to work with Renault on their electric vehicles and have them available for download for The Sims 3.”
Renault’s Twizy Z.E Concept car has already been confirmed to be added, which you can download free of charge by The Sims 3 players “within an ‘Electric Vehicle Pack’ (EVP), which will comprise a number of sustainable environmental items including solar panels and a windmill. The use of the EVP inside The Sims 3will have positive repercussions for a player’s in-game family by reducing their weekly virtual household bills.”
Sounds pretty good to me, go green and in-return you get to save some [virtual]green.
