Vampire DLC bringing creepy fiends to The Sims 4

The Sims 4 is definitely taking a darker turn with its Vampires Game Pack, due out on Jan 24.

Players can take on the form of vampires, with special abilities, such as turning humans into vampires, and moving around using different forms. Vampires are powered by “plasma” which can be purchased, grown or harvested from human characters.

The Sims 4 is an open-ended life simulation for PC in which characters work, socialize, procreate and acquire goods. Previous expansions and game packs focused on relatively tame themes, such as outdoor adventures, fine dining and spooky costumes.

Vampires do not thrive in sunlight, so publisher EA has added a creepy new world to the game, called Forgotten Hollow, where nights last longer. Players can also try to raise their own families of vampires. No price has been announced as yet.

Sony sponsors bootcamp for girls who want to work in gaming

Sony has announced plans to sponsor a "bootcamp" for girls who want to work in video games and technology. The six-week session is being held in Liverpool for local girls ages 11-to-14. It's being organized by Liverpool Girl Geeks, which says it's attracted large numbers of applications for its various courses and programs. This year, it hopes to support 400 girls, according to a report in Develop. "There is a gender imbalance within our technology sector," said Sony's Michelle Tilley. "We need to take action now to ensure a more balanced and inclusive industry for the future. The games industry is an amazing place to work so we should actively encourage young women to join it by inspiring, championing and empowering them to achieve their dreams."
