EA is sending The Sims, and the gamers who love the franchise, back to the dark ages with The Sims Medieval, a new series for the PC and Mac. This permutation of the Sims allows gamers to “build up a medieval kingdom, controlling characters from all walks of life, from Kings and Queens, to Knights and Wizards, Blacksmiths and Bards.” This is all accomplished through a new addition to the series: quest driven gameplay.
As you complete quests in The Sims Medieval, you’ll be able to shape your kingdom as you see fit, and either expand it internally or through laying waste to everything and everyone else. Plus with every new game, you’ll create a hero with a variety of traits, which will no doubt switch up the experience each time.
The Sims Medieval is launching in Spring 2011.
