EA has revealed what to expect in The Sims 3 World Adventures if you decide to explore Egypt, Mummies!Nope not your Mum, even thought that would be quite entertaining (and a bit more scary), but full blown historical Egyptian mummies and they have one agenda…to curse your Sims.While exploring Egypt you will be able to discover treasures, participate in numerous challenges and investigate the hidden caves and tombs which litter the landscape.The location will be one of three real-world inspired locations, and will include Pyramids, tombs laden with sarcophagus’ and the odd unwelcome guest. With the mummy, EA has confirmed it could end in three different ways depending on your Sim. If you have a Sim which knows martial arts you will be able to fight off the ancient Pharaoh, but if they don’t either you will be knocked unconscious or have a curse put on your Sim resulting in a new quest being unlocked.To get the curse removed you will have to send your Sim to the Sphinx and ask for the chance to remove it using the soul peace statue, if the Sphinx refuses though it will signal the unfortunate demise of your Sim!However you can also become a mummy, with this your Sim will gain numerous advantages such as the energy and bladder motives becoming non-existent which will result in no trips to the toilet or having to sleep. Not only that your Sim will become strong, have a longer life compared to other Sims and have unique social interaction items.Sounds good doesn’t it? Well its not all great as your Mummy Sim will move alot slower than normal Sims and also be alot more prone to fire. How much fire you put your Sim around is abit questionable, lets be honest your not going to make him make dinner next to a gas cooker are you?We werewith The Sims 3, and have high hopes for the first expansion World Adventures which will launch 20 November on PC and MAC.
