They'll be adding a new world where our Sims get to have their very own dragons to nurture, and possibly singe more than just their clothes. It promises new stories and "cute baby dragons".

The indie devs have booby trapped the 'cracked' version so that virtual game developers are failing, hard, as their virtual little products get hammered by pirates. Irony in 5, 4, 3, 2...
