The Sims 3 probably will need no introduction to PC gamers, as numerous expansion packs have broadened the boundaries that your virtual life can extend to.

But never has it gone this far over to the dark side.

Now, enter the mysterious town of Moonlight Falls, where strange things happen by the light of the moon.

Forget your average humans and instead create supernatural beings, from hairy werewolves and cackling witches to cheeky fairies and more intriguing vampires.

Then you can stalk the night, use your wand to cast spells, claw the furniture and more. Supernatural proves to be the escapist release that transforms Sims fans from house-proud, toilet-flushing, virtual jobsworth entities into true fantasy extensions of themselves.

Share your elixirs with pals online and chomp on other Sims to spread the darkness and wreak havoc. And don’t worry, you can always go back to your old life if you want to ... but you won’t!
