The Sims Medieval Previewed
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Hooked Gamers recently posted a new preview of the upcoming The Sims Medieval. The game, scheduled for a March 25 release, will allow players to create heroes, venture on quests, build and control a kingdom, and play every Hero Sim character in the land.

At the heart of the game, you will be telling a story, and just like in every sims game, you will be creating, controlling, and nurturing these characters to build up their stories. EA have stated that they are using a modified version of The Sims 3 engine and they have changed a great deal of it to produce a totally new art style. They are trying to keep roughly the same specifications as The Sims 3, but are at the same time attempting to balance their goals of having the medieval world be visually stunning, and yet make sure that the majority of players out there will be able to play the game.

This time around, we will play God in a totally new scenario as we overlook a medieval setting. Delve deep into the middle ages and begin to build up your kingdom by placing heroes and completing quests. Of course, along side the quests, your heroes will have to go about their daily lives with their professions and relationships. Each hero will have different attributes, so different heroes will fit certain quests more than others. You can build up your heroes' skills and send them out to complete quests, earning you kingdom points which you can use to expand your kingdom and make it look better. Your kingdom will have a “kingdom ambition” and some of the confirmed ambitions include "Best In Show", "Busy Builder", "Efficient Expander", "Fame", "Filled Coffers", "Hard Workers", "Imperial Domination", "Legendary", "No Quest For The Weary", "Safe And Sound", "Thoughts And Prayers", and "Wealthy Populace".
