The Sims 2: Bon Voyage is the sixth expansion pack in The Sims 2 series. It was released on September 4, 2007 in North America and September 6 in Europe. It is an expansion that focuses mainly on traveling, similar to The Sims: Vacation expansion pack for the original game.
The Sims 2: Bon Voyage was first announced on May 24, 2007. The announcement contained three screenshots with more information to come. This expansion pack was promoted with a mock blog on The Sims 2 website which discussed the three vacation destinations and various activities there and included more screenshots.
An initial problem with the game was the NPC redundancy bug. This bug meant that any time a sim went to a community or hotel lot, new NPCs would be created to fill in already filled roles slowing down the game. This was not noticeable at first but with all the unnecessary NPCs being created, the game would eventually be unplayable. Eventually a patch was released which fixed this bug among other things.
There was also a lot of controversy surrounding the usage of SecuROM. Since The Sims: Pet Stories, EA had been using SecuROM. The main problems it caused were with installation and launching the game. Users were told not to remove the program.
