...Animal House.

Yep. The first expansion shall be University. It's "Animal House, but of course, Maxis weirder." according to a Maxis developer.

Multiple universities will be linked to every neighborhood. Unis will be fully customizable (of course). Some new career paths that are only available to college grads will be added to "make it worthwhile" to go to college.

And the biggest detail... lifespan while at college is doubled. Just so your Sims will have time enough to do a few things and possibly graduate. And everyone thinks college living is unhealthy!

Just thought you Simmers would like to know. ;) Oh yeah... due out SOON. (Q1 2005)

I assume they already had the first three expansion packs done several months before they released the game.

...lame.

That's the word you're looking for.

I will not be buying sims 2 university. "Oh, look; let's take the totally fucked up age cycle and add yet another layer BEFORE ADULTHOOD, thus screwing with the cycle EVEN MORE!"

Although if 'young adulthood' allows them to meet and fall in love with and get engaged to prospective spouses, that objection would go away, leaving me just with the one where I think the idea is lame.

Well, your college goer can meet new loves and get engaged, married, and bring their partner Sim(s) home with them.

Depends on what "non-Maxis" patches you've applied to your game.
