Wisan Pijitbandan, general manager of EA Thailand said, EA will launch The Sims 2 Bon Voyage, the latest expansion pack for the Sims 2, in September. In this new episode, The Sims can explore three new exotic destinations. Player can get Sims to book a holiday by phone, pick their trip companions and hop on a plane to the selected destination.
"In other words, it's all about breaking your Sims away from everyday routines and venturing into new exciting locations. In the first destination, your Sims can relax on a tropical island. Once your Sims arrive at the destination, you will begin by checking in to a hotel, whether a luxury suite or a cozy room. Once checked in, Sims can unwind in the sun, build sand castles, swim in beautiful ocean or just explore the beach for other fun activities. If your Sims feel tense, they can check into a spa and choose the various types of massage treatments. In the last destination, your Sims can explore the culture of the Far East. In this enchanting scene, they will embark on a spiritual adventure and learn exotic ways of living such as soaking in a hot bath, Tai Chi, meditating in a Zen garden, and learning a vanishing spell from a ninja."
In the Sims 2 Bon Voyage, The Sims will take back home many great new memories, not to mention the many new items to decorate their home.
The Sims will enjoy learning new exotic customs like local greetings which they can teach to their friends when they get home. They can also take pictures in various fun poses and hang the photos on the wall at home. The Sims will also have a chance to shop for unique objects and collect shells on the beach as little tokens for their loved ones. Meanwhile, those who like it a little more adventurous can go on a treasure hunt to dig up hidden treasures.
