franchise has always been about simulating everyday life. Sure, expansions have gotten more and more exciting with nightclubs, pets, vacations, expeditions, and a whole lot more, but the core gameplay has always centered around a mostly plausible modern day lifestyle. You have your house, your job, your friends, your cozy little neighborhood, and you grow up and live life to the fullest. That's what the franchise is about. Well, now The Sims
is branching out in a major way, with the announcement of The Sims Medieval
, a game set to come out for the PC and Mac in spring of 2011.
