Many of us wondered if there would ever be a revival of The Sims Online. Some never thought it would happen. Some thought that The Sims 3 for console would have had online features where you play with your friends, instead that was just for custom content.
However, EA have announced The Sims Social at E3 2011! The game is a Facebook app that allows you to play The Sims online with your real friends for free! While it may be completely different to what you may have expected from an online game in The Sims series, Social is a step in the right direction as it allows you to control your Sims lives with your friends doing the same thing!
