Electronic Arts has announced a Limited Edition version of The Sims Medieval is now available for pre-order at JB Hi-Fi, EB Games, GAME, Target, Kmart, Big W and Dick Smith.

The Sims MedievalLimited Edition will launch in March 2011 and feature content that will grant players access to three all-new, themed throne rooms: Barbarian, Dark Magic and Princess. Limited Edition owners will also get two exclusive outfit sets – the Monarch set featuring a royally decked out king and queen, and the Executioner set complete with a leather apron and an intimidating black hood.

The Sims Medieval is a new standalone game from The Sims Studio, creators of The Sims 3, andmarks a departure from the traditional The Sims games with all-new features and gameplay. Set in medieval times, players now have the opportunity to build up a medieval kingdom, go on quests, level-up their characters and fulfill storyline elements. Players will find their Sims, the characters unique to The Sims games, in a variety of situations previously unknown to them, such as duels to the death, choosing whether to poison a witch or marry her, and punishing Sims by having them thrown into the Pit of Judgment. Every quest plays out differently depending on which Hero Sim the player is controlling.

Everything in The Sims Medieval is crafted to create an immersive medieval world, from the quest-based gameplay, to the medieval objects such as swords, stocks and thrones, down to the characters themselves.  Players can choose to customise every new Hero Sim that comes to the kingdom, including selecting their traits and their fatal flaw. Players can also get close to their characters, not only sending them on epic quests, but also making sure they carry out their daily responsibilities such as healing the sick, trading for exotic goods or forging armour.
