The Sims Medieval: Pirates & Nobles Announced
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

EA and The Sims Studio have announced the upcoming release of the first adventure pack for The Sims Medieval. Pirates and Nobles introduces a variety of new quests, new treasure hunting options, and a host of new pirate and nobility themed items to the game.

“This first adventure pack to The Sims Medieval gives players more freedom to play as they want, which is the earmark of the Sims brand,” said Scott Evans, General Manager of The Sims Studio. “For our players that want more guided gameplay, they will find new quests and one new Kingdom Ambition, and for those who prefer the sandbox world of The Sims, they will find more time to explore life in the Middle Ages.”

The Sims Medieval: Pirates and Nobles provides players with more variety and new choices in every aspect of the game. A player’s heroic story begins when the Pirates of Aarbyville and the Nobles of Tredony arrive in the kingdom, followed quickly by sword fights, love affairs, grand adventures and mysteries. For those who enjoy the rush of heroic missions, new exhilarating quests expand upon the original adventures like finding the fountain of youth or protecting the kingdom from an evil sorcerer. The war between Tredony and Aarbyville creates a new ambition and opportunity for players to suit up their kingdoms. Players can choose to be anyone from a king or queen to a knight or blacksmith, and with that, prepare for voyage accordingly. Treasure hunting is an exciting new gameplay feature in the pack with maps, shovels, rare treasures and surprising dangers, while challenging players to find hidden objects and search for desirable rewards that will benefit their Hero Sims. Other new items include birds that you can name and train, and interrogation chairs.

The Sims Medieval: Pirates and Nobles has a range of pirate and nobility-themed items that players can use to revamp their creation of legendary swords or embellish their customized royal weddings with new fashion pieces. Bold new signature items can be used as rewards or punishments. As a treat, Hero Sims can now be accompanied by companions such as pet falcons or parrots. If Sims have been more naughty than nice, players can subject them to extreme punishments such as the interrogation chair.

Telltale Games has released a new making of trailer for its recently released adventure title, Puzzle Agent 2. The game once again puts players in the role of Agent Nelson Tethers who must return to the rural town of Scoggins, Minnesota to solve the mystery of "the Hidden People" once and for all.

Agent Nelson Tethers just solved the biggest case of his career. So why isn't he satisfied? There's still the case of a missing eraser factory foreman, a whispering madness is still creeping from mind to mind, and a troubling recurrence of creatures is lurking into the town.

The FBI's Depart of Puzzle Research has marked the case solved -- are they sweeping it under the rug? Or worse, do they not even care? Worried that the case will languish forever unsolved, Tethers must go rogue and venture back to the eerie town of Scoggins, Minnesota to solve the mystery of "the Hidden People" once and for all.
Head over to the link below to view the new video.
