Sims go all Medieval

Written by Nick Farell

You can be bored in any century
The “real life” simulator, the Sims is going to go all Medieval.

EA has decided that the game, has milked as much of the modern era as possible and is now going to get a Medieval make-over. The first edition of the new series, The Sims Medieval, will be available on the PC and Mac, and is scheduled for a 2011 release.

There will be quest-based gameplay and medieval objects such as swords and stocks and thrones. Players can choose to customize every new Hero that comes to the kingdom, including selecting their traits and their fatal flaw.

“Players get close to their characters, not only sending them on epic quests, but also making sure they carry out their daily responsibilities such as healing the sick, trading for exotic goods, or forging armor. From having a baby to competing in a royal tournament, what happens to their Sims is up to the player. The time of romance and chivalry is back with The Sims Medieval," the press release says.

The Sims Medieval will feature quests which include "crafting a legendary sword to arranging a royal wedding, to protecting the kingdom from an evil sorcerer, to finding the fountain of youth."

Of course it is more of a fantasy medieval land. We doubt that anyone is going to die of the black death or be tortured for being a heretic. Still it must be better than the thrilling Sim Modern Life game where you seem to spend most of your time worrying where the next toilet is.
