EXCLUSIVE | Careers Coming Soon To The Sims Social

In the continuing battle by Playfish and EA to win back players of The Sims Social and improve the playability and longevity of the online Facebook game the developers are really working on adding new and improved features.

One of the new features alongside Cars, a Second Vacation Home, Ask Over A Sim and New Skill Sets to come to The Sims Social very soon will be the ability for your Sim to have their very own career, just like the previous award winning PC version of The Sims franchise.

Details are still very slim as to how the developers are planning to implement this new feature but we do know that it is definitely in the works and on Playfish's minds. We don't think that our Sims will disappear and go off to work for a couple of hours a day and from the information we have received it seems as though you will have the choice of which career you would like to pursue and then you will climb the career ladder by completing Quests specific to the Career path you have chosen.

Once we have more information on the new option of Career Paths we'll bring it you exclusively to The Sims Social Fansite. Please note that this new addition has not been confirmed by the developers and that this new feature could be some time away. Would you like your Sim to have a Career? What Career would you want for your Sim if you had the choice? Let us know via Facebook, Twitter or by leaving a Comment in the section provided below.

  4. This is going to be freaking awesome!
    I'm so excited, hopefully they'll have stuff like a Robot Tech, an Architect, a train engineer, a Petroleum engineer, a dentist, a doctor, some good variety of careers.

    Maybe we'll get a variety of skills instead of a variety of pianos.

  5. This reminds me a LOT of The Sims Online. But that was a lot better than The Sims Social. Had jobs and all that, too.

  12. Personally speaking, they already lost me as a daily player. I became very fed up with all of the bugs and the "antics" they pulled, like ripping tile out of my house, then putting it in the shop for simcash! There isn't anything they can add to the game that will make me want to play it again. The fact that they lost so many players is their fault & could have been avoided if they would have paid more attention to fixing the numerous problems/bugs & wouldn't have kept taking things from us (ie. double simoleons while inspired). Rather than making the game more fun for us to play, they kept making it worse, eventually driving people like me away.

  13. It was stated in this sites article that based on the map of the new vacation homes new home locations could be very possible in the future (jungle & mountain i believe was their guesstimate).

    Well in my mind, this explains the large half empty sims map. I am guessing that the location of your job will also be shown on this map, perhaps you will own a shop.

    It would be cool if you started as an employee, but with the right combination of your work level and supply of simoleons you could buy a store of your own.

  14. my sim already has a home business. She is a writer, a cateror, a dress maker, an exercise trainer; a musician and so many other things. Now you want her to have a job outside the home too. My sim is about money, so I hope this job is going to pay big bucks, and if it doesn't, my sim is not going to be leaving the house and fight traffic to be in a dead end job. Is my sim going to have a boss? Ahhh Hell no!!!

  15. OMG NOOO WAAYY!
    I'd love to have a baker, plumber, home decorator,agent..etc...!
    And I think they should make a store so everyone can decorate it and have people come into their store and buy whtever they have!

  16. Haha. I agree with the people who say "fix the bugs" first so players can enjoy the game better. How about a career as "snag troubleshooter"? At first I thought it was my net connection or my PC that's causing the problem, so I had to upgrade. Now, it's hi-speed connection & better processor, & the game still snags. Funny it doesn't happen with other games.

  17. This sounds like fun!!! I can't wait! However; PLEASE incorporate a "writing" job?! THAT would be so awesome... Something of a writing career! Things relating to book writing and poetry and other things like that! THAT would catch my attention, a lot! :) Things that would teach morals; principles... And, jobs that aren't really jobs, but are cultural would be cool too! An, idea - maybe?! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  18. Can you incorporate aside from jobs, activity? I forgot to mention that! Activity that involves "interest"? Because a career I love and that I have, which is writing... would be great to have in game... But, my activity of interest is also, cultural... ;) Like meditation - working with healing methods... Things relating to Buddha and Ancient Egypt - Europe... That would be so cool for sim social... :) Just some ideas... ??? ;) Maybe 2 things to do Jobs and Activity of Interesting? ;) And, if you have jobs in game? Do we get Sim Cash? lol Just curious. hahaha!
