Its existence was confirmed when Electronic Arts filed a trademark protection for the name "MySims SkyHeroes" on January 26, 2010  in relation to “Computer game software; Computer game software downloadable from a global computer network; Video game software”. A second filing for MySims SkyHeroes covers “Entertainment services, namely, providing an on-line computer game; Provision of information relating to electronic computer games provided via the Internet”. EA officially announced MySims SkyHeroes to the public on May 4, 2010.  A trailer, along with several screenshots and character renders was revealed (see trailer below after the Tabs).
ABC Software also listed MySims SkyHeroes for Playstation 3 and Xbox 360.  With this fact, MySims SkyHeroes was the first MySims game to date that is on a non-Nintendo console (excluding the PC and Mobile Phones). Also this is the first MySims game to contain Cameo Characters (MySims Agents had "sim easter eggs" of some of these characters, but they were not considered a character) with Cmdr. Shepard from the Mass Effect franchise, Elliot Salem and Tyson Rios from the Army of Two franchise, Isaac Clarke from Dead Space, Morrigan from the Dragon Age franchise, and Dusty from the Medal of Honor franchise.
Take to the sky to lead the resistance against Morcubus and his drone army and to stop his plans to take over the skyways. MySims SkyHeroes is an all new adventure that brings the thrill and high speed action of flying to the creative, immersive world of MySims.
Go from unknown pilot to celebrated hero as you defeat dangerous enemies in aerial dogfights, test your reflexes in fast-paced speed challenges, and take on massive enemy bosses that demand all your skill as a pilot to survive. As you progress, you build, customize and tune your aircraft to give you an edge in combat – upgrade your wings for swifter maneuvers, switch out your engine for a speed boost, or change the paint job to camouflage your plane and avoid enemy fire.
Face Morcubus’ drones with an ally in split-screen cooperative gameplay, or take the game online to challenge your friends in fun, competitive 10-player high speed action.
Morcubus and his drones must be stopped; will you rise to the challenge?!
