Collaboration Between The Sims and Blaise Features Special Simlish Recording of ‘Thunderstorm’ and Downloadable Sim Character
The Sims™ fans around the world are getting ready to party with a hot new line-up of rising artists that have recorded their music in Simlish for this March’s expansion pack, The Sims 3 University Life. The Maxis Label of Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: EA) today announced the full list of artists and songs that are featured in the game, including talented British newcomer Blaise with her self-penned track Thunderstorm.
The collaboration between The Sims, one of the world’s most popular gaming franchises of all time, and 16-year-old Blaise also includes a specially created Sim character of the artist that is available now for all The Sims 3 players to download via The Sims™ 3 Exchange.
“I’ve been playing The Sims for years now so I’m thrilled to be part of the soundtrack that has attracted top artists in the past”, said Blaise. “It’s so cool to see myself as a Sim and great to be part of such an iconic game so early in my career.”
The Sims 3 University Life will give players an opportunity to leave home and attend university, where they will enroll in classes, earn degrees and discover the crazy antics and hijinks that go hand-in-hand with the college lifestyle. From juice-keggers to new social groups, to protests in the quad and young love, there’s much more to university than time spent in the classroom.
Sims will explore an all-new college town filled with new locations to visit such as the bowling alley and SimBurger and discover hidden talents through an array of extra-curricular activities, including spray painting murals, playing games of kicky bag in the quad and so much more!
The Sims 3 Live Broadcast will begin tomorrow, 3/1/13, @ 10am Pacific! As usual, we will host the live event right here on SimsVIP, and have a replay available for those who miss it.

Building in The Sims 3 University Life. Along with all of the amazing gameplay and new objects, The Sims 3 University Life adds several new options for builders to use, mainly in the form of new lot types. These new lot types allow for a huge range of buildings, from dorms to hangouts. Here’s a brief run-down on all of the new tools for you amazing builders out there!
Let’s start with dorms, sorority and fraternity houses. In The Sims 3 University Life world, players can build their own dorms. The sky is the limit as you make a place for your Sims to call home during their stay at university. With the new roommate functionality, Sims will automatically occupy dorms to act as roommates for your household (or you can make and move your own roommates into your dorm via edit town). A dorm can hold up to eight Sims, including your household.
Sororities and fraternities act very similarly to dorms and follow most of the same rules. The big difference for these lots is that they are not co-ed – sororities will automatically search for female roommates and fraternities for male roommates. These lot types also have a little bit more of a party atmosphere than regular dorms – juice keggers and dares will happen here more frequently. By the way, dorms, sororities and fraternities are free for Sims to live in while at university!
