How Ready Are You for The Sims 4?

When The Sims 4 launches in September, players of The Sims 3 will be able to show just how passionate they are about The Sims. Maxis has just launched The Sims 4 Rewards program that offers up some nifty, exclusive virtual The Sims 4 swag for everyone who owns The Sims 3. Find out what’s waiting for you in The Sims 4!

Here’s how it works: You’ll earn a specific item for your living quarters in The Sims 4 for each expansion pack you own for The Sims 3, as well as getting one just for owning The Sims 3. These items are sleek and sexy rewards that you can display in any home you build. These awards are only available through this Rewards program – people will see these rewards in your collection and know just how loyal you are to your Sims’ lives.

So, for example, if you own The Sims 3, you’ll get the Let There Be Plumbobs Award for The Sims 4. If you’ve upgraded with The Sims 3 Pets expansion pack, you’ll earn the Paws Anonymous Award for The Sims 4. There are 12 Plumbob Awards to collect, and if you manage to collect them all, you’ll earn one final ultimate trophy for your life in The Sims 4: the enormous and awesome Ultimate Freezer Bunny Award.

Maxis has made it easy to know what you’ll be getting in The Sims 4. Head over to their website at www.thesims.com/rewards and log in with your EA Account. Bam. As long as you’ve registered your games and expansions, you’ll see every bonus reward awaiting you in The Sims 4 on Day One.

When people check out your homes, the awards you put on display will show them how much of a Sims fan you really are. Will you be among the elite few to have the Freezer Bunny Award in your living room for The Sims 4?

If you haven’t yet locked in your copy of The Sims 4, be sure to check out the Origin-exclusive Digital Deluxe Edition. Pre-ordering now means you’ll be able to download the game days before the release date and start playing the second it’s available. What will you build while everyone’s waiting in line?
