Sims Medieval expansion docking August 2011

The first expansion pack for the medieval adventure will add pirate-themed quests, objects, and treasure-hunting crusades.

EA has revealed the first expansion pack for The Sims Medieval will hit store shelves this August. The Pirates and Nobles add-on for PCs and Macs will add themed quests, objects, and treasure hunts to the adventure, as well as new story objectives revolving around life in the Middle Ages.

The Sims Medieval is throwing pirates into the mix.

The expansion will see the arrival of the Pirates of Aarbyville and the Nobles of Tredony in the kingdom, prompting quests to find the fabled Fountain of Youth and protect the kingdom from an array of evil sorcery. The war between Tredony and Aarbyville will also create a new ambition for players to suit up their kingdoms, choosing from a host of characters that includes everyone from a king or queen to a knight or blacksmith.

The pack also adds treasure hunting, challenging players to find hidden objects with the aid of maps and shovels and search for rewards that will benefit their hero sims. Other new items include birds that players can name and train, as well as interrogation chairs.

On the items front, Pirates and Nobles will introduce a range of pirate- and nobility-themed items, including companions like pet falcons and parrots.

Wait a second. Choose from a King or Queen, Knight or Blacksmith? Isn't that what you're doing already. Also, Tredony is already part of your court. I'm not quite sure what they're adding.

@ZICO11 The Sims Online probably takes that cake. Then eats it.

Unless this one allows you to build your own buildings and landscapes (just like other Sims games), I don't see how fans would care for this.

What do pirates have to do with the medieval times?

Sure pirates are cool, but does anyone actually regularly play Medieval?
