The Sims 2 Pets ships

Aspyr Media today announced that the Mac version of Electronic Arts' The Sims 2 Pets has shipped to retail outlets nationwide. The Sims 2 Pets is the fourth expansion pack for The Sims 2; it will be available on retail shelves nationwide for Mac within weeks of the title's release for PCs and consoles, according to the company. "The addition of a new friend is guaranteed to enrich the daily lives of your Sims! Not only will players have the opportunity to choose from a variety of existing breeds, and hot designer mixes, but they'll also be able to personally design their new friend with the Create-a-Pet feature. The ability to customize gives fans the opportunity to create their ideal pet by choosing their body shape, unique markings, even their pet's personalities!" The Sims 2 Pets is rated "T" for "Teen" and is available for $35. It requires Mac OS X 10.3.9 or later and a G4/G5- or Intel-based Mac running at 1.2GHz or faster.

Players of the The Sims 2 Pets are able to teach their pet new tricks, take them for a romp in the park, outfit them with new pet accessories and even give them a job. The Sims' pet will require care and training, according to Aspyr: "A
neglected cat with an urge to scratch might claw up your new couch if you aren't careful, and leaving your dog unattended near a freshly planted flower bed probably isn't wise!"

The Sims 2 Pets was developed for the Mac by Aspyr Studios, Aspyr's internal development team, under license from EA.
