The adventure pack includes new quests, treasure hunting, and new objects. Scott Evans, General Manager of The Sims Studio, says that this addition will give players more freedom to play open-sandbox style:
“For our players that want more guided gameplay, they will find new quests and one new Kingdom Ambition, and for those who prefer the sandbox world of The Sims, they will find more time to explore life in the Middle Ages,” said Evans.
The player’s story begins when the Pirates of Aarbyville and the Nobles of Tredony arrive in the kingdom. Sword fights, love affairs, adventures, and mystery ensues. The war between Tredony and Aarbybille creates a new ambition and opportunity for players to fight for their kingdom. Players can choose to be kings, queens, knights, blacksmiths, etc. The new items are pirate and nobility-themed.
Some new features of the game include birds you can name and train, interrogation chairs, and treasure hunting.
I STILL haven’t had time to play Sims Medieval, but I plan to during my vacation (weep for my busy life, my dear readers, weep!). After I play, I’ll be able to say with more certainty whether I want this addition, but I’m guessing I will. I actually told people about a game I wanted to create when I was younger, and this expansion pack sounds EXACTLY like the game I told folks about. I’m considering investigating and seeing if one of my old friends works for EA now, lol!
