Here's a message we pulled out of a bottle: The Sims 3 Island Paradise expansion will be available June 28. The message also contained a USB stick with the above trailer and below screenshots. Convenient.

Island Paradise will let Sims show some skin as they enjoy leisurely activities and live on houseboats. Man, houseboats sound like the best idea in the world, except for the whole, you know, sinking thing. There are also speedboats and jet skis, along with scuba and snorkelling exploration. Pre-orders receive the "Island Survival Pack." No word yet if it includes the ability to cry over a lost relationship with an artistic volleyball.

Sink your feet in the sand and get ready for a tropical escape in The Sims 3 Island Paradise! Just released today is a brand new trailer and screenshots showcasing all the fun in the sun moments that await your Sims in this mecca of isles. From owning and managing a resort, to living a life on a houseboat and even deep sea diving, The Sims 3 Island Paradise opens up a world of possibilities never seen in The Sims 3 PC franchise before.

Here Sims will find their path to happiness with all-new leisurely activities, outdoor escapades and out-at-sea discoveries. They can set sail on a sunset cruise, dive deep beneath the waves to explore the ocean floor, retreat to a romantic bungalow stilted just above the water, island hop to meet new Sims and more. With new modes of transportation such as houseboats, speedboats and jet skis, dive lots devoted to scuba and snorkelling enthusiasts and secret islands yet to be uncovered, The Sims 3 Island Paradise really opens up a whole new world to explore and adventures to embark on.

The Sims 3 Island Paradise is currently available for pre-order and drops anchor in retail stores and for digital download on Origin.com on June 28, 2013. Players who pre-order will receive the Limited Edition version of the game that comes with the Island Survival Pack – a new set of content that equips your Sims with the necessities to scrape together an existence on a deserted island. From a makeshift home on a floating barge to minimalist clothing options such as tattered togs, your Sims will be ready to endure in a shipwrecked lifestyle with the essentials found in this bonus pack.
