As many of you know, on Jan. 20th an even about The Sims Medieval took place in Munich, featuring producer Rawson Law Stovall. Several German sites attended, and they had the chance to ask questions about the game and its features. SimFans.de has published a very interesting article with only new details, and we have translated it for you. Please note that the game shown was a beta version, so changes may occur in the final version. The game is going to be released on March, 24th.

Create a Sim

The Create a Sim screen is structurally the same of The Sims 3, but there are many differences in the options. First of all, you cannot create households, but only single Sims: Medieval is NOT an expansion of The Sims 3 nor a parallel version, and it does not interact with the base game. When creating a new character, you can choose its body/facial features, skintone, eyecolor, clothing and details like freckles, wrinkles, scars and so on. You can set up to 8 different outfits for each Sim, and you can edit them with the Create a Style tool. As for the hair, there are 24 hairstyles you can choose from, and many accessories like crowns, helmets, etc. depending on the character you're creating.

Despite The Sims 3, moreover, Medieval has 21 traits and 15 fatal flaws you can choose from: each Sim has only two traits and a fatal flaw.

One of the points Medieval differs the most from The Sims 3 is the life and evolution of the character: since the game's focus is the growth of the kingdom, Sims' needs are less important and have been reduced. Hunger and Energy are the most urgent ones and need to be fullfilled daily, while the Hygiene bar has a slower decay. We don't know if there are other needs and how they work.

However, the most important difference regards the evolution of the characters: Sims in Medieval do not age. If they get married and have children, they will only grow to up children. There are no teenagers or elders.

Sims can get married in the church, and if they do, the king will send them a present and they will increase their money funds.

Characters' roles

Each character in Medieval has a specific role, for a total amount of 10 (among which you can find: wizard, knight, king, smith). For more information, you can read Rachel Bernstein's interview abouth charachters in Medieval.
