Wait, what?!?!?! A non-expansion pack expansion pack???!!?!?1?!!

So I’m poking around on my lunch break and I find that EA uploaded a new trailer to their YouTube channel about a new town that will soon be available called Midnight Hollow

The Sims 3 Midnight Hollow official trailer by EA Games.

The trailer seems all normal and stuff describing the town as a place for sims that don’t quite fit in with the other towns; while they’re saying this, I have visions of sending my vampire and fairy sims there.  But then it mentions “set up your own store and hire employees to earn extra simoleons.”  WTF!  Is this how we’re going to get The Sims 2 Open for Business gameplay in The Sims 3?  It might be a worthwhile town to get just for that added play.  But also of note, as many of the previous comments on the video mention, the trailer uses music that was first used in The Sims 2.

The town is scheduled to be available on September 26, so we’ll see….
