The Sims 3 gets ambitious with new expansion pack

Electronic Arts has announced a new expansion pack for the popular The Sims 3, called The Sims 3 Ambitions Expansion pack.

As the name might imply, the expansion adds a slew of new career paths, including a ghost hunter, inventor, sculptor, and private investigator. Best of all, players will be able to follow their Sims to their jobs, giving them direct control over what they do (or don’t do) at work.

Some of the career additions will actually impact your entire neighborhood, as well. For example, choosing to be an architecht, you can shape the look of the game’s landscape. Or if you choose to be a stylist, turning your entire neighborhood into a fashion nightmare. Our own Rey Gutierrez will also be pleased to learn that Ambitions features a new tattoo system.

The expansion will be available for PC and Mac, and will ship this June. iPhone gamers won’t be left out in the cold — there will be a version coming to the mobile platform as well.
