If you were at all worried that EA was ramping down its content plans for The Sims 3, then rest assured that the publisher is intent on bringing even more of the Stuff Pack and expansion loving you crave over the course of 2013!

Players can create their own idea of island paradise for their Sims in this new expansion pack and embark on an unforgettable journey.”
