Unleash your inner pirate or naughty noble in an adventure of epic proportions! The EA Play Label of Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ:ERTS – News) announced today that The Sims Medieval™: Pirates and Nobles is currently in development and will ship in August 2011. The Sims Medieval: Pirates & Nobles adventure pack introduces players to new quests, treasure hunting, and hundreds of new objects for their medieval kingdom.
“This first adventure pack to The Sims Medieval gives players more freedom to play as they want, which is the earmark of the Sims brand,” said Scott Evans, General Manager of The Sims Studio. “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.”
The Sims Medieval: Pirates and Nobles provides players with more variety and new choices in every aspect of the game. A player’s heroic story begins when the Pirates of Aarbyville and the Nobles of Tredony arrive in the kingdom, followed quickly by sword fights, love affairs, grand adventures and mysteries. For those who enjoy the rush of heroic missions, new exhilarating quests expand upon the original adventures like finding the fountain of youth or protecting the kingdom from an evil sorcerer. The war between Tredony and Aarbyville creates a new ambition and opportunity for players to suit up their kingdoms. Players can choose to be anyone from a king or queen to a knight or blacksmith, and with that, prepare for voyage accordingly. Treasure hunting is an exciting new gameplay feature in the pack with maps, shovels, rare treasures and surprising dangers, while challenging players to find hidden objects and search for desirable rewards that will benefit their Hero Sims. Other new items include birds that you can name and train, and interrogation chairs.
The Sims Medieval: Pirates and Nobles has a range of pirate and nobility-themed items that players can use to revamp their creation of legendary swords or embellish their customized royal weddings with new fashion pieces. Bold new signature items can be used as rewards or punishments. As a treat, Hero Sims can now be accompanied by companions such as pet falcons or parrots. If Sims have been more naughty than nice, players can subject them to extreme punishments such as the interrogation chair.
