The Sims 3 Island Paradise is currently available for pre-order. Players who pre-order will receive the Limited Edition version of the game that includes the Island Survival Pack – a new set of content that offers players all the necessities needed for their Sims to scrape an existence on a deserted island. The Sims 3 Island Paradise drops anchor June 28, 2013. Learn more at http://thesims.com/en_GB/the-sims-3-island-paradise.
