The Sims 3 Monte Vista has hit retail shelves worldwide, and I just scooped up my very own copy. The retail version includes a new box art, as well as a disc.
Today is the day that The Sims 3 Monte Vista is available in retail stores worldwide. I will be purchasing this boxed version today, and have a post up with details later tonight. Starting today, Monte Vista is available for purchase via Origin.
Monte Vista is gorgeous, that is an easy fact to state – it really is gorgeous. For these reviews I try to find unique things and this was hard – because I could not get past how gorgeous it is. Huge thanks to EA UK for providing Monte Vista for me to review.
We’ve had beautiful worlds before of course, Sunlit Tides or Appaloosa Plains for example, and in Sunlit Tides, we were given unique rabbit holes and houses.
In Monte Vista they stepped up their work a bit more. I have been to Italy and instantly got the Italian feel from this world. The terrain is beautiful and painted with a lot of detail. I just loved seeing the sprawling hills in the background while playing.
Best Buy has listed The Sims 3 Monte Vista for pre order, which is set to release on January 8th, 2013. Please note that this is only a “code in a box”, and not a disc with pre loaded content.
When The Sims 3 Monte Vista was first announced at the Maxis Live Broadcast, right away we thought, “Another world already?! Didn’t we just get Sunlit Tides?” and I’m sure we weren’t the only ones. Sunlit Tides is that nice beach island world you’ve always wanted to put your Sims on, but Monte Vista is a whole different world.
The Sims 3 Monte Vista is not an island world, or desert like previous worlds we’ve seen (Sunlit Tides and Lucky Palms), but a world that takes place in a peaceful countryside with rolling hills, and old time Italian style charm. The world is magnificent from every view in the world, from the new lighthouse, coliseum, or up atop the walled in city that sits high above the rest.
