EA and Amazon have partnered up to develop a special Sims-inspired Alexa Skill for super fans.
Available to English speakers across the globe, The Sims’ Alexa Skill allows fans to play trivia games, music, and learn more about The Sims universe.
The trivia feature allows up to four super fans to compete head-to-head as each tries to prove his/her fandom by correctly answering obscure facts about the game. Featuring over 200 “brain-busting” questions, there’s perhaps no better way to prove you’re a Sims superfan.
On the other hand, if you’re new (or need to brush up on your Sims knowledge), there’s a ‘fun facts’ feature that barrages fans with tidbits of insight from the creators.
Lastly, there’s the self-explanatory music feature. As you’d expect, EA has included all of our favorite tunes from the franchise, totaling some seven hours in length.
As an added bonus, the company has also unveiled ‘Lin-Z’, its Alexa-inspired assistant for your Sims characters. Just like the real-world Alexa, Lin-Z can play tunes, answer questions, order products, and control the various ‘smart’ gadgets around the house.
According to EA, these updates are now live.
