Sims get ready to celebrate the season

EA to offer The Sims 2 Holiday Edition; package includes full game, plus festive bonus items for the virtual home.


Electronic Arts today announced that it is injecting an element of festive seasonal cheer into its Sims franchise with the November 17 release of The Sims 2: Holiday Edition for the PC. Carrying the same $49.99 price as the original release of The Sims 2, the bundle includes the full original game, as well as 40 new holiday-themed objects, from stockings to hang by a chimney with care, to a tacky reindeer lawn ornament.

Existing owners of The Sims 2 won't be entirely left out in the cold, as EA will offer The Sims 2 Holiday Party Pack, essentially just an add-on consisting of the Holiday Edition's extra content, directly through its official site. EA has not yet announced a price for the Holiday Party Pack. For more on The Sims 2, check out GameSpot's full review.
