From the Manufacturer

  • Join the fun with seasonal festivals: Sims can get in a snowball fight at the annual winter festival, get their faces painted at the summer festival, whoop it up at the spring dance, or bob for apples during the fall festival.
  • Experience the joy and challenge of changing weather: New weather effects and Sim reactions capture the power and beauty of nature! Sims can get a tan, be struck by lightning, or catch a cold!
  • Dress for the weather: Outfit your Sim in new styles for the season, including snow gear, wetsuits, raincoats and umbrellas, and new Halloween costumes!
  • Welcome mysterious visitors: New weather patterns aren't the only things appearing in the sky! Befriend an alien visitor and use their UFO to abduct a neighbor, invade a community lot, or travel to the stars.
  • Bring the outdoors inside: Your Sim can now learn the recipe for pumpkin pie or style their home with new furniture and décor. There are a host of new items to ring in each season. Get a tanning booth in time for summer, or ring in the holiday spirit with house lights and decorations.
  • Delight your Sims with new activities for every season: Whether building an intimate igloo, carving a scary Jack o' lantern, taking a plunge off the diving board, or setting off all-new fireworks, your Sim can always find new things to do throughout the year.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally we have Seasons! November 13, 2012
Platform for Display:PC Download|Verified Purchase
Seasons is the Sims 3 expansion I've been anxiously awaiting. I purchased every expansion up through Pets. Pets was a letdown for me - odd because I enjoyed it so much in Sims 2. I was let down to the point that I stopped playing Sims for months. I was ecstatic when I heard they were finally releasing Seasons, and after a 2 hour Origin dowload process very early this morning, I'm happy to say that I'm hooked again. (BTW, I'm very sorry to see so many people are having trouble with Origin. I did not get any error messages when I downloaded, but I did feel like every time I thought I'd finished the process, there was something else to do. My first step was to update Origin. Then, I followed the Amazon instructions. My final step was an update of the launcher, and then it was good to go, and I was able to play the game from my Origin library. I have not yet gotten the Ice Lounge pre-order bonus to install, but I'll worry about that later.) Now back to the game...

Seasons 3 has all the features we loved in the previous version, along with new features like seasonal festivals (in the fall they can participate in apple bobbing and pie eating contests), trick or treating, and my favorite so far: snowboarding. It seems like the developers put more focus this time on including events that emphasize community and relationship-building. So far, I'm enjoying fall and winter the most, as those seem to add the greatest enhancements, with the most fun activities, to the base game. One cool feature in winter is that you can see Sims' frosty breath outside. Oddly, vampires also have frosty breath. Developers, if you're listening, take this feature away from vampires!

1.0 out of 5 stars Read this first! August 11, 2013

I didn't download the base Sims 3 through Origin (I downloaded through Amazon) and now Origin won't let me download this expansion pack without first uninstalling the base game and reinstalling through Origin. Total waste.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loving seasons! November 13, 2012
By Shanie
Platform for Display:PC Download|Verified Purchase
I been a huge fan of the series since forever and currently I only own the base game and town life stuff, which I am fine with.. and NOW Seasons.. To me if feels like it completes the game..
Yes you have to download through Origin which I didn't know either, but looking back at the product page it tell you in bold letters Origin required to activate, but once I got everything situated and downloaded, it was fine, the download took me around 3 hours or so, but I was ok with it because I had some last minute stuff to do.. But once installed immediately started looking around the new stuff, there isn't a lot of clothing though, and I do believe only 2 hair style for woman without accessories and a ton of hair with accessories with hats and shells an things..
The festival lots are really neat, if your playing Sunset Valley the festival lot will replace central park.. But you have to place the lot on there, and wait a few sim days like maybe 2 and a pop up will come up and say the summer or whatever season your in is starting.. The calander for the sims in the summer time have a red circle around Monday which they are calling Leisure Day..
You can't change the seasons in any other order but you can turn off which seasons you don't want and you can turn off Hail and rain and etc.. You can also set the seasons for as long as you want, I believe 28 days or for as little as 3 days..
I haven't yet seen an alian and I hope I don't lol... But they are in the game and you can not make them in CAS.. Basically if you ignore them, they will go away..
I was [playing through the summer season and everyone was sleeping and my screen flashed and heard a loud bang, bought jumped out of my seat lol.. It felt very real the thunderstorm..

1.0 out of 5 stars DO NOT BUY THE DOWNLOAD VERSION IT MAY NOT WORK January 25, 2014
Platform for Display:PC Download|Verified Purchase
No wonder so many people have game this game and its expansions One star. There is a major bug apparently that causes "some" users to get stuck on an infinate loading loop when trying to load a neighborhood/world in the game. Nothing i did fixed it. uninstalled, reinstalled, redowndownloaded, cleared cache, even reinstalled WIndows, Nothing.

turns out it may be a bug specifically for the origin version of the game. Even if you use a non origin Sims 3 base game version and install apparently ANY of the origin expansion packs (i.e. those downloaded from EA's origin platform) it will get stuck.

Its terrible when a non-legit version of the game works better then the legit one!

the problem is now i doubt ill be able to get any sort of refund because i technically did not buy the product from EA and i doubt Amazon is going to give me a refund.

I'll demand one anyways just saying something like EA customer support didnt help (as im sure they wont be able to since i did EVERYTHING myself to try to fix it on my own)

DO NOT BUY THIS GAME AS A DOWNLOAD AS LIKELY YOU WILL NEED ORIGIN TO INSTALL IT AND THERE IS A GOOD CHANCE WHAT YOU PAID FOR SIMPLY WILL NOT WORK!

no wonder so many people hate EA!

I think i will NEVER buy another downloaded product by EA again.

and i am not a fool, i am good with computers i know how to troubleshoot and look up information on the computer, the game simply wont work.

Worst experience i ever had with a game. I cant tell you how many times i installed,reinstalled, just to get the freaking thing to work.
