The Sims go Medieval on Your Ass!

EA has just announced a new Sims series entitled “The Sims Medieval.” The game drops players directly into the Middle Ages. Those who are familiar with previous Sims titles will notice some new features like the ability to create a hero, go on quests and build/control a kingdom. Players can also control different characters (Kings, Queens, Wizards, etc.) within their kingdom and take them on quest. One quest is said to even feature “forging a legendary sword and protecting the kingdom from an evil sorcerer.” The quests will vary greatly depending on which character you play as.

The method on how you build your kingdom, will also effect available quests and game progression.

According to an official press release:

Everything in The Sims Medieval is crafted to create an immersive medieval world, from the quest-based gameplay, to the medieval objects such as swords and stocks and thrones, right down to the warm look of the characters, and the painterly approach to the world itself. 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.

Scott Evans, general manager of The Sims Studio at EA. said this of the game:

The Middle Ages is a time of intrigue, legend, and excitement. It offers a perfect backdrop for a brand new series from The Sims studio due to the limitless stories that can be told. The Sims Medieval offers a new way for players to experience The Sims which we hope fans will enjoy, and it features gameplay that fans of strategy and role-playing games will find appealing such as controlling an entire kingdom and quest-based gameplay mechanics.

The Sims Medieval is set to hit store shelves in Spring 2011.
