The Sims 3 ‘After Dark’ listing found on Play.com
Posted by Judhudson on 8 July, 2010 at 8:36 PM


The very first third Sims 3 expansion rumor may actually have merit after all – The Sims 3 After Dark. Of course, it’d need a few more backings from other retailers before we should actually believe it, but as of today it was added to Play.com for an estimated release day of October 29, 2010. That’s actually in line with the proper release dates of expansions. But as always, it is still a rumor so treat it like one.

The screenshot:

Thanks to Duskey from The Sims Wiki for the original source (oh, and as a note don’t bother sending me the link to the leaked screenshot – that was just created for fun)

After Dark, it sound similar with Hot Date and Nightlife. I hope there will be more shops, entertainment and activities in the community.

My wild speculation: Nightclub is a must, bowling, pool table, bar, restaurant, etc. I hope EA give a lot of new community lots including the new rabbit hole buildings. The creature is vampire.

I wouldnt mind this (if its true) but it would have to be down extraordinarily well (which by record is not EA's report card).

This sounds pretty good, maybe it'll be a cross between Hot date and Nightlife. I have been dying for a dating expansion pack, getting tired of seeing my flirty and romantic sims spend their nights inside or at the library.

Sounds like all boy sims will inevitably look sickeningly androgynous and like they bathed in bleach. They can't be told apart from the girl sims anymore and basically every age but the teen stage will be disposed. The creature will be the nerd who has the special power of pulling his pants up to his armpits, voice break and a special move which consists of pointing and laughing at the other boy sims for being such wussies.

In twinbrook there is already a pub. I guess it might be there ready for the alcohol poisoning and the street brawls.

After dark people must eat, hope we get better restaurants. Sounds like the perfect EP for the piano to make a comeback.

I bet you that now that someone's leaked it they'll make another EP instead, and then release after dark as the 4th one, just to spite whoever leaked it. Would be very EA.

Or, pretend they intended to all along.

Or, sue Play.com.

There's no such expansion pack. It isn't even lies and propaganda, just the made-up rumors of third-party websites.

Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I cannot accept, and the wisdom to hide the bodies of those I had to kill because they pissed me off.

I can't believe that I'll have to handle Pescado saying 'lies and propaganda' for three months again, and people don't getting that he's joking/being sarcastic.

Anyways, I hope this EP brings back pianos, hot tubs, dates, restaurants, nightclubs, open libraries, shoppings, etc. Oh, the urban life...

All that and poker tables. My sims are not career types. They need alternative income sources. And roller skates.

If that were really so, why are the making up rumors about an expansion that clearly does not exist? Clearly, they *DO* enjoy making up such rumors, precisely because it draws attention and gets people to look at their site.

Haha! "Special features: Artwork subjekt to change". Play.com

A quick visit at Google shows that the rumors have been around since late may. Rumors are annoying, they make the wait till the next EP even longer. Instead of getting the official news two months before the release you suddenly get the news six months before the release. Don't like waiting!

oh my gosh, this one sounds really good. i think it will be our hot date/nightlife. not too bad of a name, either.

i hope this is definitely real.


ALTHOUGH, unfortunately it could very easily just be a rumor.


one thing i would like to come with this one though, would be hot tubs. and hopefully pianos.

I thought this was the official anouncement

Anyway a nightlife / hot date style expansion pack seems quite likely, but if it's going to happen then I'd like EA to expand upon those concepts a bit, give the player a bit more control over restaraunts ( menu, prices )

they wont. The most they'll do is add more food (if they don't, it wold be a shame) and make it available in restaurants.

If this is something that might happen, I don't know if EA would follow in the footsteps of Sims 2. Let's face it, it's about money and keeping interest in Sims 2 would be in their benefit. Hence two "new" concepts WA and Ambitions. So maybe After Dark, if it will exist, might be totally different from anything in the old Sims 2. Just the name, After Dark, sounds more sinister than dating etc. I think I maybe giving EA too much credit and I'm just hopeful they'll do something really innovative!
