The Sims 3: Supernatural Trailer Possibly Hints Upcoming Expansion!

After constantly pausing and searching through this trailer.. I finally found 4 possible hints in this trailer that are related to weather somehow. Could this mean that EP8 could be Weather/Seasons?

In this one we see snow on the mountains is getting a little closer towards town. Thank you Spon1Player for pointing this out.

In this screenshot, in the far right corner, you see a painting with a house and what appears to be a lightning bolt.

In the background, the moon has changed to a crecent (not really hinting weather, but it is a change in the moon’s pattern; obviously related to the werewolves’ change of form) and the snow on the mountains is really obvious now as well.

In this screenshot, in the painting behind the man’s head, is a house with what seems to be very stormy weather.

I may have missed some, and if you see any more, please tell me! :) What do you guys think? Do you think EP8 will be Weather/Seasons?

    In the past we’ve gotten several paintings that have had weather in them, but I don’t think the paintings really have anything to do with hinting towards a weather expansion. The snow on the mountains however, does mean something to me, and I do see it as a possible hint.

    This is a ridiculous post.

    Seriously, you might as well just say because there are stars at night and in some of the paintings we’re getting a Space EP.

    Yeah, this post is kinda pushing it. Knowing EA, they’d wanna make seasons and weather it’s own EP rather than blend it with another.

  • http://Website Jovan

    I have to agree with kiwi tea. Not everything should hint to seasons. Just relax people and wait until seasons get announced (that’s if it get’s announced).

    Exactly!

  • http://www.journeyschronicle.blogspot.com Journey

    Well Seasons/Weather is something that nearly everyone has been asking for since the beginning and it wouldn’t surprise me if they actually hinted weather in this trailer. These are only possible hints. :P

  • http://Website Jovan

    That’s what people react to Bridgeport. They we’re all like: ”OMG OMG seasons is the next EP for sure” and 4 EP’s later, seasons is still not announced.

  • http://pasimficandbeyond.wikia.com/wiki/Main_Page kiwi_tea

    LOTS of posts on this site over the past year have been “kinda pushing it” in this way, just never quite as terribly as this. This post really is the wick’s end.

  • Spon1Player

    Staff members on the site are allowed to post speculations, and it’s not like he is saying “Oh this could mean we’re getting a karaoke expansion”. He is sharing his ideas and backing them up with what he believes.

    Please, if you’re going to comment, leave something constructive. However, I do believe the things Journey has wrote about could lead to weather, especially after we saw categories such as “Rain” showing up on the store etc.

  • http://pasimficandbeyond.wikia.com/wiki/Main_Page kiwi_tea

    The way I see it, a fansite’s primary role is to inform and report carefully, rather than just manufacture endless hype over nothing – which, increasingly – is what Simprograms does, and one of several reasons I stepped down as a contributor so quickly.

    The contributors here “back up” their speculations about as well as a Creationist “backs up” theirs – there’s no skepticism, so careful thinking, just hype and hope and jumping up and down. It’s unprofessional, and it’s exhausting to fans who come here looking for news, not a stream of (what we could charitably call) weakly evidenced fanboi nonsense. A small number of SP readers laid this complaint (and others) at my feet over the week I was contributing here.

    You guys are all young and enthusiastic, but you really need to think about exercising some restraint, and firming up the editorial policies.

    Enough of the hype. EA does that quite well enough by itself.

    A fansite is a site by fans. As a fan, we are ALLOWED to speculate on this and/or that. We are NOT a big name gaming publication like IGN, GameSpot or etc. Hell, even they have the occasional post where they speculate about an announce trailer and what might or might not be in the game. They even invite their readers to do the same in the comments section. So chill man. If we want to do a post where one or more of us want to share our thoughts and/or guesses about possible easter eggs/hints or something, then we will do so. If you do not like it, there are plenty of other Sims fansites out there that you can frequent instead of SimPrograms. :)

  • http://pasimficandbeyond.wikia.com/wiki/Main_Page kiwi_tea

    There is *nothing* wrong with your staff posting reasonable, evidenced, careful speculation. The problem lies with the fact that the speculation here is usually none of those.

    I believe that a forum is the proper place for discussion, not the front page.

  • http://www.journeyschronicle.blogspot.com Journey

    This is a news site DaBoogadie. We are free to discuss anything sims related :) even Speculation. The comments area will always have different voices of opinions, as do any other news sites’ comments.

    I apologize for us not being conformist or doing it by the book(if such a book exist). Sure the two paintings could play on the ‘spooky’ theme, but maybe there’s more than that. I don’t understand why you are making a federal case about this. Take a chill pill and mellow out. Hell, we’ve all done post like that at least once.

    As I said in my last reply to you, if you don’t like it you can leave. There’s the door, please let it hit you on the way out. CIAO!!!

  • http://pasimficandbeyond.wikia.com/wiki/Main_Page kiwi_tea

    In other words, DaBoogadie, these guys view Simprograms as closer to having a forum thread where a small egotistical group of self-professed “fans” can post whatever pops into their heads without reproach, and with mod-powers, than as a professionally-run fansite for other fans to come visit.

    The “this is a news site” preface to Journey’s post is not to be mistaken to mean “this is a news site”, it is only intended to cover the next part of the post where he explains that this is not really a news site any longer.

    At this time SimPrograms does not have forums. Maybe in the future… maybe. Also, we can’t talk about it on the official forums, Hydra would quickly remove it and ban someone if they kept making similar threads. :(

  • http://Website Matrix54

    None of those are hints. It reminds me of a joke image floating around facebook, about how teachers misinterpret what’s being read. The example was blue curtains, and they’ll say the author was sad or depressed or whatever, but no one stopped to think that maybe the blue curtains were just blue curtains.

    Wow Kiwi, some people can let things go an move on with their lives, but some people hold on to grudges about things they were never really involved with and bases it off of false facts they hear from others…

    In other words, that certain topic never involved you and everyone has moved on now. ;) Do whatever you please, though. I’m not going to be the one to hold you back.

    It is cute to speculate, though it is obvious weather is next, otherwise Fans may riot and march on EA’s studios, if they hold out much longer.

    Weather has been a constant teaser in content hidden throughout all the expansions, I genuinely think they intended to have it in the base game, but was unable to include it.

    Neither Kiwi or Journey deserve to have a new one ripped over their conflicting opinions. And I’d always assumes this was both a fan site and a news site. So this should just go under rumors like all the other supposed Easter eggs and be done with it.

    …Why so serious, it is just a game and opinions after all, and opinions are like assholes, everyone has one.

  • http://ironseagull.blogspot.com/ Captain THPS4

    The information in the recent surveys are easily the most substantial hints that weather must be coming soon. Assuming the weather-related ideas got the highest votes it’s probably at least in the planning stages . I can see why people think there’s so many in-game hints to weather, weather is such a common thing that we all deal with in real life.

  • Jonny

    I honestly hope you’re right!

  • http://Website n00biito

    Isn’t it inherent that speculation doesn’t need hard evidence HENCE SPECULATION not FACT?!

    Please get a dictionary or GTFO. Snow on the mountains is legitimate hint since that’s never been done before. I’m sure that once we are able to play the EP we’ll find more hints pointing to a Seasons type EP.

    There’s no need to attack the Simprograms staff. Have you all lost your minds?! I know there are a group of people that whine a lot about seasons but seeing how EP7 is now confirmed I think we can safely say that there’s a high probability that EP8 is gonna be Seasons.

  • http://Website Simfan28

    Journey, Thanks for the post, but I trust more the famous deleted file in a patch than your hints. I totally agree with the idea that a fansite is allowed for some speculation. But, here, the hint are too weak for me.

    Snow in a mountain? Very weak. With every new neighborhood, you can made link like this.

    A lightning in a paint? A stormy weather? Links between lightning and magic are common. Same thing about the stormy weather. So nothing to hint weather here for me.

    The moon? You say it yourshelf : related to the werewolf.

    All this things say, thanks for the pictures. The last is the best. I love the painting.

    There’s snow on the mountains…Just sayin’!

    There’s a fog when the yellow male fairy vomits toad.

    …And the mushrooms in the zombie scene. I think they’re growing after rain in the real life.

    When they first show the werewolf it reminds of Teen Wolf. Love that show so much.

    Would be really cool though if they could have Supernatural Hunter profession where you can take care of problem supernaturals. That or just reason so the supernaturals have a reason to be careful.

  • http://www.journeyschronicle.blogspot.com Journey

    n00biito, there actually is :) the only way to see it is by going into Camera-Man Mode by pressing TAB and in the distant terrain you can see a mountain with light snow on the peak of it.

    I never use camera man mode so I never saw it. Since this is a trailer it very well may be that they used camera man mode and indeed this is too much of a speculation.

  • http://www.journeyschronicle.blogspot.com Journey

    Well, speculation never hurt anyone. ;) And they did use camera man mode to get the angles..but that mountain is way too close to have to even use the camera man mode to see it.

  • http://Website Shawn

    Not to stir the pot here, I am just going to say this real quick:

    There have been way more hints in previous EPs that more “ridiculous” than this.

    The biggest example being the bat on the bottom of the trampoline and then there’s the fairy statue.

    The mountains and storm pictures have me sold, not gonna lie. I agree with ya, Journey.

  • Jesse James

    Ok…wait a minute, there’s a camera man mode???? when the heck did they add that? and I never did find the bat (baseball bat or mammal bat, which are we talking about?) under the trampoline…because I only used it once….it’s kinda useless….imo. and why is everyone fighting over weather, it was confirmed S3 would have it, they just never said when. so plz chill… Is it that big of a deal? somewhat, sure. But still… arguing amongst yourselves isn’t going to prove anything. Besides, EA has deperately shaken up their release schedule for this series, thus far, so it’s hard telling. it is like forcasting the weather…unless you’re in indianna….

  • http://Website GG

    Wow, people are so rude here! This is their site, let them speculate what they want.. it’s not like they’re saying “LOOKS FOLKS WEATHER IS NEXT, I’M 100% SURE”

  • http://Website mippy

    i think that the moonis for the werewolves and the snow is just for decoration and nothing else. All these hints for weather and seasons r just a big joke the ea probberly didn’t even know that we would think that we would be getting seasons or weather in store

  • http://Website mippy

    its just so stupid
    :o borrrrring
    to GG I AM 99.999999999% sure that it would be like the one after the next one that comes out

  • http://Website mippy

    ur right about one thing Jesse James there is no point about fighting over this

    I have been exploring for a bit for any mature high-quality articles or blog posts on this kind
    of house . Exploring in Yahoo I ultimately stumbled upon
    this website. Reading this information So i’m satisfied to exhibit
    that I have a very excellent uncanny feeling I found out just what I needed.
    I most undoubtedly will make sure to do not forget this site and give it
    a glance regularly.
