To celebrate the App Store’s 5th birthday, The Sims Medieval is currently free! It’s definitely worth a download, and at the price of £0.00 who could say no?
The Sims Medieval is a spin-off to The Sims franchise and takes your Sims back in time. The spin-off was launched in 2011 and had one “adventure pack” before development ceased.
To find The Sims Medieval, click here (US App Store) or search “The Sims Medieval” on the App Store.

The Sims Medieval is one of my favourite I’mboredsowhattodo games, and like many things I like the official page on Facebook. I also have notifications set up to email me when something happens even though it does get pretty spammy. It does lead to some interesting posts for BeyondSims sometimes though too, so maybe it’s a good thing!
Check out the tiniest little email I got earlier regarding Medieval, and throw me some ideas in the comments about what this could mean.
From the looks of it, I personally wondered if this means that they are changing the name to optimize Google/Facebook searches to plop people onto this generic “Sims” page. Since you can’t merge Facebook Pages (as of yet anyways), could it be that the whole Sims Experience as it were could be shifting to just a basic Sims Page?
Will The Sims 3, Medieval, The Sims 4, and any other pages be grouped into one, singular idea on Facebook?
This is all complete speculation of course, but it’s fun speculation at the least! Help feed my conspiracy theories in the comments below, OR sign up for our spanking new Non-Beta Forums and continue the discussion in our Medieval Section with me!
It seems like FreePlay is following suit:
Sort of makes my ‘congregating’ idea less crazy eh? While I wasn’t convinced, theblackscorpion showed me this link about combining pages when I was tossing around how to phrase this post, so maybe this next generation of Sims Facebook Pages will be just one page. A reader posted their languaged-version of my original email, so it looks like each language will have their own Super Page. Thanks to TBS for helping mull this over
And with that, I’m calling this as the last update on this topic for me!
This confirms that the speculated amalgamation will include main series as well as side series. Should make for a more organized news-source from The Sims Series!

Check out this cool review by the dutch site Telegraaf.
In March, Electronic Arts made a trip with The Sims Middle of the fixed Sims series. The game was about to perform missions and managing the kingdom and less fortunate to keep the Sims. Recently the first expansion pack: The Sims Medieval: Pirates and Adel.
Nobility or piracy?
The new package will not create significant changes to The Sims Middle Ages. So you still do not own castle. However brings more missions with him and a war between the pirates on the one hand and the nobility on the other. To the player the task of peace to try to close or otherwise take sides in the war.
To try to make peace, the player must perform various missions. One of the first is to treat both parties at the court. For that food can be removed and a hostess, and musician are chosen. There are always two choices, and gradually you find yourself an edge is increased.

Special thanks to iSims for pointing this out!
Here’s the review of Pirates and Nobles by IGN.
Less than six months ago, Electronic Arts released The Sims Medieval. Despite being based on the Sims 3 engine, it was a reinvented Sims experience: you were no longer managing personal needs and taking care of a family, but living in a small kingdom and completing quests. It was an evolution of one of my favorite games of all time.
Unfortunately, the same can’t be said of the first expansion, Pirates & Nobles. The bullet points read like a standard expansion for any of the classic Sims games: new traits, new clothes, new objects, and new social interactions. We’ve also got a new treasure hunting mechanic if you’re really bored.
