The Sims Medieval: Pirates and Nobles contains new story, treasure hunting, birds
EA has announced The Sim Medieval: Pirates and Nobles adventure pack is now available across Europe. The adventure pack includes a new storyline, additional quests and one new Kingdom Ambition.
“We set out to take advantage of the great questing feature of the base game and with The Sims Medieval: Pirates and Nobles tell an epic story complete with adventure, drama romance, a royal wedding, a courtroom scene and more ,” said Scott Evans, GM of The Sims Studio. “It’s a kind of storytelling that you won’t see in any other Sims game. On top of that we added some great new features, including treasure hunting, interrogation, and pet parrots and falcons.”
Players will now be able to run amok in the game as a swash-buckling pirate or a noble, or they can just change the clothes of their existing Sim to go along with the new theme.
The pack also included treasure hunting, which tasks players with finding hidden objects along with desirable rewards .Additionally, players can go on quests to find the fountain of youth, protecting the kingdom from an evil sorcerer, or participate in a forbidden love affair. Much like real-life, really.
Sidekicks are available as well, such as a falcon or parrot which can be trained to hunt, train, or sent on missions. Parrots can also do your dirty work for you by attacking a rival Sim.
Much like the Spanish Inquisition, players can also use an interrogation chair on others. No word on whether fluffy pillows are part of the torture process or not.
