Medieval announced 3 August
The Sims: Medieval is now official. EA sent out a press release with a few screenshots. As can be read in the press release, it's totally different then the regular Sims series and almost looks like they only use the Sims in the name to attract more people to it. Well we have to wait for more info to see if that's the case.
