EA Announces Plans For The Sims 2

REDWOOD CITY, Calif., May 5, 2003 – Electronic Arts (Nasdaq: ERTS) today announced that The Sims™ 2, the next generation of the #1 PC game of all time, is in development at the company’s Walnut Creek-based Maxis™ studio. The Sims 2 will be unveiled to industry insiders on May 13th at the Electronic Entertainment Exposition in Los Angeles and is scheduled to ship in early 2004.

Guiding your Sims through “Life’s Big Moments” takes on new importance, as players now get a “Life Score” to measure how well they are playing each individual Sim. The Sims in The Sims 2 are more aware and responsive to both other Sims and their surroundings. Sims truly come to life expressing moods and feelings through more realistic body animations and for the first time facial animations. An entirely new 3-D engine makes the world of The Sims 2 more life-like and dynamic. The Sims franchise celebrated its third anniversary in February 2003.
