About Victorian Fantasy:
EA Creator L’UniverSims takes us back in time with ‘Victorian Fantasy’, the theme for our new update! Get your Sims to fulfill their fantasy of living the noble life of dukes, earls, duchesses and countesses from the Victorian era! Gear up for gorgeous outfits and ornate items that incorporate elements of Elizabethan and Gothic influences.
Not just that, we also have a ‘Fantasea’ that’s coming with this update which refers to the name of our new Superyacht!
Thanks to all the love and responses to our first Superyacht ‘Bella’, we’re happy to now introduce Superyacht 2 called ‘Fantasea’! The Fantasea is located on Mystery Island, left of the bridge (you’ll need to complete the ‘Mysterious Island Quest’ and ‘Bella’ Superyacht event to access this!) Available from player level 42, Fantasea offers a sleek black birth design, with three levels of open plan luxury living including pools, spas, a bar and a high-end kitchen space. The grand prize includes a black (or white) helicopter and helipad on the roof (plus exclusive build mode items to decorate with)!
Unlocks on 29th of July, so mark your calendars! Before you start building this one, please check that there are no Downtown Developer events in progress. Want to learn more? Read up on the Superyachts 2 FAQ for everything you need to know about the new luxury yacht!
