For those who dare to a take a stroll through the dark ages, The Sims Medieval is a true knight’s tale!

The Sims Medieval is built with the Sims engine and characters have the same realism and level of detail as the bestselling simulation series. What makes The Sims Medieval different?

Players will find themselves enchanted by a detailed kingdom from the Middle Ages that needs to be built and managed.
