The Sims Medieval

EA just took the wraps off of a new Sims game set in the olden days of swords and sorcery. It's not an expansion to The Sims 3 that transplants your suburban pet people into fantasy land, but it's own stand-alone thing with kings, castles, knights, wizards, quests and more. We'll have a full preview coming in the upcoming issue of PC Gamer, so keep an eye out.

Where there's a castle, there's a dungeon. This bodes well for Sim torture fans.

Fresh produce is conveniently stored near the prisoner for easy pelting.
