Based on the architecture behind The Sims Online, the free-to-play title offers several improvements on the first game. The 12 separate cities of before have been combined to form one virtual super-city.
Interestingly, users are now able to upload custom-content. However, despite the immediate comparison this draws to Linden Labs’ Second Life, the fact that EA will be screening the content makes it significantly different.
A new in-game economy has also been put in place which, amongst other tings, allows users to buy the in-game currency (Simoleans) directly from Maxis.
