The latest game in the Sim's franchise has just been announced. This time everyone's favorite gibberish-spewing simulated humans will be living their lives in a very different setting. Gone is suburbia, replaced by the thrilling squalor of Medieval Europe. In The Sims: Medieval you'll be able to play as a king, queen, heroic knight or gallant bard.
In fact, it looks like the only career path you won't be able to follow is that of a filthy peasant. Shoveling dung and dying from Typhoid at 17 doesn't present quite as many options for character development.
All we have is a press release so far, but it looks like a great deal of the gameplay will focus around quests. These can range from forging a magical sword to planning a royal wedding to dealing with troublesome sorcerers. You'll control a kingdom as well as individual sims, and it will be your responsibility to protect (or expand) it by whatever means necessary.
