The Sims: Superstar, released on May 15, 2003 in Region 1, is the sixth expansion pack for The Sims. It allows players to guide Sims to fame. It is one of the few expansion packs for the original game not to lend its theme to a later re-make for The Sims 2; however, its basic premise of accompanying a playable Sim to their workplace and guiding their actions throughout the working day was revisited in The Sims 2: Open for Business, The Sims 3: Ambitions and The Sims 4: Get to Work, and the mechanics surrounding celebrities were reintroduced in The Sims 3: Late Night, The Sims 3: Showtime and The Sims 4: Get Famous.
