Wow, it’s almost 11 years since the original SIMS game first hit the PC. Can you remember all the fuss is caused? It felt like the whole world was raving about how fun it was to watch a load of virtual people walk around a virtual house all day. Who’d have thought way back then that the series would grow into a multi-million seller and spawn thousands of sequels? Not me that’s for sure, to this day I’ve still never played any of them, but I did come quite close once.
It was way back around 2002 when I decided to rent The Sims: House Party on Gamecube, only to discover that the game wouldn’t even boot without a brand new larger size memory card, which I didn’t own. So no Sims for me.
Ever since those days The Sims popularity has started to drop and even the big selling The Sims 3 was considered a bit of a flop. As you can imagine, Electronic Arts are not the sort of publisher to let a big brand die and so they took their latest Sims 3 engine and went back to the drawing board. And the result is The Sims Medieval; a totally new take on the franchise.
Here’s just some of the exciting sounding features you can expect from this brand new Sims title set in the Middle Ages:
- A living world of Sims in an age of adventure, drama, and romance
- Enhanced graphics, lighting, animations, and more lifelike Sims
- Create heroes, build up their skills and send them on epic quests
- Quests drive your kingdom’s story – good or evil, cruel or kind, romantic or warlike
If you’re not one to be outdone by your friends then the limited edition version comes with some great bonus goodies that will give you an extra bit of class:
- Two exclusive costume sets for male and female Sims
- 3 Throne Rooms, Princess, Barbarian and Dark Magic
The Sims Medieval release date for PC and Mac is 22nd March in the US and 25th everywhere else.
