The Sims Medieval Limited Edition uncloaked

Electronic Arts' stand-alone period title getting top-tier edition; $50 pack will include three themed throne rooms, two exclusive outfits; game due out March 22, 2011.

The feudal system during the Middle Ages made it so peasants stayed peasants and royalty reaped the bounty of the land. In The Sims Medieval, anyone with $50 can purchase the limited edition of the game.

Electronic Arts recently announced that The Sims Medieval--due out March 22, 2011 for the PC and Mac--will score a limited-edition pack. The $50 bundle will include the main game, as well as three themed throne rooms: Barbarian, Princess, and Dark Magic. Additionally, those who pick up the LE will be awarded two exclusive outfit sets: a king and queen monarch set, as well as an executioner set, which comes with a leather apron and a black hood.

The Sims Medieval casts a spell this March.

Announced in early August, The Sims Medieval is a stand-alone Sims spin-off from The Sims Studio, creators of The Sims 3 and other series entries. The title, the first in a series, will have players create heroes, venture on quests, build and control a kingdom, and play every "Hero Sim" character in the game. Additionally, The Sims Medieval gives players the chance to control persons from all walks of life, including kings, queens, knights, wizards, blacksmiths, and bards.

The game's quests will include of an array of tasks, including crafting a legendary sword, arranging a royal wedding, protecting the kingdom from an evil sorcerer, and finding the fountain of youth. Additionally, EA promises quests will play out differently depending on which Hero Sim is in action.

As is expected of the franchise, The Sims Medieval will feature a plethora of customization and moral options. Players can erect and expand their kingdoms either by internal growth or outward imperial domination. Additionally, players can choose to embark upon quests for personal fame or for the well-being of their constituents and can personalize their character's physical appearance, intangible traits, and fatal flaws.

Why do people find it so fun to be evil sims, is it ti be funny or is just because people find it so fun to watch people suffer from lack of food or old age, ether way I find it more fun and more challenging to be good, because I find it more hard to be good then evil

Another Great Preview! On its way into not only my Collection but many others too..I loved the Elder Scrolls "Oblivion RPG Game" I love this time period..Having the Sims thrown into the mix, should be the "Very Best Game" I'll have to date! I hate the wait, lol! But Late Night will surely keep me really busy along with their other releases this year..I want to Limited Edition this time...I didn't on the Sims3 release and I lost the Euro Car but now..maybe I'll get the newest Model Horse, lol!

Sims 3 in a different wrapper and only the ability to set down more rabbit hole type buildings. It would be a lot more fun if you could design your own castle or cathedral, etc.

This game looks pretty awesome, but I have a bad feeling that it is going to have shallow gameplay just like Spore. I'll be waiting for the reviews before I decide anything.

It sounds like they're eager to sell a few more pre-orders, because the game will probably be just as buggy as The Sims 3 is.
