Aspyr Media, Inc. today announced that the Mac version of The Sims 2 Pets from Electronic Arts has shipped to retail outlets nationwide. The Sims 2 Pets is the fourth expansion pack for The Sims 2 and is set to land on retail shelves nationwide for Mac within weeks of the title’s release for PCs and consoles. The Sims 2 Pets was developed for the Mac by Aspyr Studios, Aspyr’s internal development team, under license from EA.
The addition of a new friend is guaranteed to enrich the daily lives of your Sims! Not only will players have the opportunity to choose from a variety of existing breeds, and hot designer mixes, but they’ll also be able to personally design their new friend with the Create-a-Pet feature. The ability to customize gives fans the opportunity to create their ideal pet by choosing their body shape, unique markings, even their pet’s personalities. With so many different animals to choose from, there’s no telling what unpredictable experiences could occur!
Players will also be able to teach their pet new tricks, take them for a romp in the park, outfit them with new pet accessories and even give them a job! As in real life, your Sims’ pet will require care and training. A neglected cat with an urge to scratch might claw up your new couch if you aren’t careful, and leaving your dog unattended near a freshly planted flower bed probably isn’t wise.
