The Sims 3 faces the music in new Stuff Pack

The year's first Stuff pack for The Sims 3 has arrived, giving your pixellated pals the opportunity to step back in time, just a bit. The Sims 3 70s, 80s, & 90s Stuff Pack is out right now for PC and Mac, and brings with it the best of those three decades, including clothes and hairstyles (including stylish facial hair) and contemporary decor. Even the tunes are retro-inspired, in a tribute to earlier games.

Of course, the 70s brings many things to the party, but the most obvious is Disco. There's a glorious new Starlight Party Ball (to add that "subtle bit of flair"), as well as bell-bottom jeans and wide-collared suits.

There's also a "new" Disco station added to your in-game radio station - a nostalgic look back at the 1970s with a twist: All the tunes included on the Disco station are the ones featured on the same station back in the original The Sims!

The 80s takes its neon revenge with big hair, leotards and legwarmers for the gym, and shoulderpads for the office. Dress for success, wherever you are.

There's another old-school throwback on the Rap channel this new Stuff Pack brings to The Sims 3 - a bunch of slammin' songs from The Sims House Party Expansion Pack from back in the day. The audio team created a bunch of beats, gave them to musicians from Oakland, California, and let them freestyle over the top. The result? Well, it's a part of history now.

...and when that level of 80s excess gets too much, the 90s steamrolls grunge back into the living room - just what you need for that "laid-back, rocker environment".

Julian Conroy knows all about that rocker environment. He's a fan whose tunes are now featured pride of place on the Rock channel. Associate Producer Sarah Holding explains in a new blog post: The game developers discovered Julian on YouTube, performing covers of The Sims songs, and promptly invited him into the game.

The Sims 3 70s, 80s, & 90s Stuff Pack is out right now for PC and Mac, either through your gaming retailer of choice or online through the Origin store.
