This is very belated, but I will post this for those who do not browse the other fansites/website.
This is what I got from my e-mail:
We’ve got some exciting news. Today we just announced The Sims 3 Midnight Hollow, the newest world from The Sims 3 Store. Here’s what Simmers can expect:
In a faraway land, amidst a forest of trees lies the town of Midnight Hollow. Rich in creativity and entrepreneurial spirit, players will now be able to open their own shops and run businesses as they meet and mingle with the townies. Full of eclectic and eccentric Sims, fans from across the Simsverse will recognize the Specter family from The Sims 2 as popular residents of this charming town. Experience the intriguing world of Midnight Hollow and all it has to offer when it ships later this month.
The Sims 3 Midnight Hollow is a new world for The Sims 3. It includes new Sims, décor and added gameplay with the Savvy Seller’s Collection that enables players to open and run businesses in the new world. For more information about The Sims 3 Midnight Hollow, click the website here.
