Continuing the in-app purchase theme that the release of ngmoco's optional pay-to-play Eliminate has kickstarted this week, EA has announced six new packs for The Sims 3.

These are based around the Campus, Vampires and Werewolves, and Castle themes, with each pack either a Live it set of home improvements or a Wear it avatar set.

The full list is below.

Campus Life Wear it set
10 items included in this set. Will you sport the jock look in a hoodie, board shorts and flip flops or be too cool for school with gnarly dreds and sunjies? Don't forget to bring your school spirit!

Campus Life Live it set
6 items are included in this set. Mess up your house in style with spent pizza boxes, ragged carpet and dirty walls. Add some bling with a tacky neon sign and you could be on your way to a interior design degree!

Vampires and Werewolves Live it set
6 items are included in this set. Who knew that living hell could be so fun? Invite friends (and enemies) over for a real creepy time. Point out the chains and shackles in this corner of the room and your comfy casket bed.

Vampires and Werewolves Wear it set
14 items are included in this set. Things are about to get scary…and hairy! Turn your Sim into a werewolf or vampire and really turn some heads.

Castle Live it set
6 items are included in this set. With decorations fit for a royal family, you'll never wanna leave this place. Take a horse-drawn carriage ride to your private castle and eat, sleep and party like king (or queen)!

Castle Wear it set
10 items are included in this set. Clothes fit for a king or queen! You'll feel like royalty when you don the ancient armour of an honorable king or the fine garments of a graceful queen.

The sets are available for 99c, €0.79 or 59p each, from within The Sims 3, which costs $6.99, €5.49 or £3.99.
