The Sims is back with a really different title this time!
EA Play Label of Electronic Arts today announced The Sims Medieval, a new series currently in development that places the popular Sims into the formula of the rpgs.
The Sims Medieval takes place in the Middle Ages, and for the first time players can create heroes, venture on quests, build and control a kingdom, and play with your favorite created hero. Fom Kings and Queens, to Knights and Wizards, Blacksmiths and Bards, the game provides a host of storytelling possibilities in the form of quests, from crafting a legendary sword to arranging a royal wedding, to protecting the kingdom from an evil sorcerer, to finding the fountain of youth. Every quest plays out differently depending on which character the player is controlling.
“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.” – Scott Evans, General Manager of The Sims Studio at EA
The Sims Medieval will be available in spring 2011 for PC and Mac.
