Remember when it was teased that The Sims Medieval will be available on Windows Phone for Nokia hardware? It appears the time has come as the app is now presently listed on the store. So what's The Sims Medieval all about? If you're not familiar with the video game series, players are tasked with entering a virtual world and controlling "sims" as they go about their daily lives. It's an incredibly popular brand on mutiple platforms.
The name also sounds vaguely familiar on Windows Phone, right? It should, as The Sims 3 is already available on the Windows Phone store, and has been for some time. With The Sims Medieval players are thrown back in time to when castles, kinds, jesters and knights were making their way in the world. Ever thought "what if I could travel back in time?" while playing Sims 3? Here's your answer.
Players are able to take on the roles of a lady and lord, vampires or even a squire. It's easy to immerse oneself in the gameplay. While the gameplay follows that of Sims 3 (and previous generations of the title), the graphics have been improved and the overall visual experience is actually really good. The Sims Medieval is also an Xbox Live-enabled Windows Phone title, so expect to get involved in some achievement unlocking.
There's a large emphasis on quests and completing goals throughout the game, but there's the sweet charm and humorous dialogue that everyone has come to enjoy and love about The Sims. If you're a fan of the series, or the genre in general, you will need to get this game.
Even though the video teaser revealing The Sims Medieval was published early 2012, it's good to see the game arrive thanks to Nokia and EA's close partnership with Windows Phone. Fear not if you don't own a Nokia Windows Phone, we're sure the game will be made available for all in the future.
You can download The Sims Medieval for $4.99 (£3.99) from the Windows Phone store (it's not currently showing in the Nokia Collection). Thanks to everyone who tipped us!
