Looks like The Sims is finally embracing the zombie craze with the next Sims 3 expansion, The Sims 3: Supernatural. Frankly, we're surprised it took Maxis this long. Anyway, today they've got some new screenshots showing the two new "races."
Now zombies aren't the only thing they're including in Supernatural -- otherwise it'd probably just be titled "Zombies" or something. The pack actually includes another magic themed creature: fairies. Not the most expected combination, we know, but this is Sims we're talking about. The series is known for being adorably (and sometimes morbidly) whacky.
If you're interested in making a fairy Sim, that can be achieved in the "Create A Sim" process, featuring a number of fairy-ish customizations like wing aesthetics, pointed ears, and so on. During gameplay, they can actually have certain effects on other characters through auras.
For players more interested in zombies, those need to be made in one of the following ways:
1. A Sim can use the alchemy table to brew a zombification elixir and throw it at another Sim
2. Or, a Sim can be bitten by a meandering zombie
And yeah, there is a cure for zombification, should you end up regretting that decision. Expect Supernatural this September.
