Begin 2003 zal The Sims Online verschijnen , een online variant op The Sims.
In about a month, we will be opening up The Sims Online to external testing. People who subscribe to The Sims Online newsletter will be randomly selected and offered the opportunity to participate in the Play Test. This test will grow from a few hundred to over 50,000 players in the next few months, so be patient if you are not immediately selected. When you are selected, you will receive an email invitation with a link to a Web site where you can order the CDs. You can order one set of CDs per invitation. We will be charging $5 to offset the shipping and handling for the two-CD set.
