The Sims Medieval: HookedGamers Preview
A short and sweet preview article from Hooked Gamers – I know we’ve had already quite enough news and posts on The Sims Medieval, but I think it’s just best to keep you informed and updated.
Prepare to don the robes of a magician or the armor of a knight as EA presents us with the next installment of Sims games, The Sims Medieval. There has been some speculation as to whether The Sims Medieval is a stand alone game or an expansion pack to the popular The Sims 3 game. Sufficed to say,The Sims Medieval is a brand new game and offers a totally different experience than you are used to. Although The Sims 3 and The Sims Medievalare separate games, there are still similarities remaining between the two. The create-a-sim mode and the buy mode where you can move, place, and customize objects are still there, but the build mode has been removed as to create a more stable medieval game.
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.
