We’re one step closer to a Sims Medieval sequel.
In the previous year, EA sought input from The Sims 4 players on whether they preferred a Medieval Castle or a High Tech Futurism pack. The fantasy option emerged victorious, creating anticipation among fans for an impending update. Finally, after seven months, an update surfaced due to an unintentional leak on the EA app.
According to Sims Community, the leaked listing introduces the “Castle Estate Kit” accompanied by two screenshots. The first image showcases an imposing grey castle with a moat and a portcullis gate. The second provides a closer view of a gothic black-and-grey castle, featuring a couple on a balcony beside knight statues engaged in flirtatious interaction.
Immerse yourself in the timeless splendor of a castle with The Sims 4 Castle Estate Kit. This community-chosen collection offers stone walls, leaded glass, and all the elements necessary to craft a captivating backdrop for your next narrative.
Embark on a majestic construction journey, drawing inspiration from castles to incorporate gothic arches, stackable ornate windows, grand staircases, exquisite stonework, and a sizable portcullis gate. The emphasis is on creating a sense of gravitas.
The price tag remains the standard £4.99 (or £4.49 with EA Play), but the release date remains uncertain. Currently, it’s marked as October 15, 2099, though with The Sims 5 on the horizon, ongoing updates for its predecessor seem unlikely in the next 75 years.
While the indicated date is clearly a placeholder, the accidental premature page release hints at an imminent launch before an official announcement.
Eurogamer reports that another community vote is pending. In addition to choosing fantasy kingdoms over sci-fi options, players also favored Goth Fashion over Rainbow Core. Considering the joint voting, these packs might see a simultaneous release. Until EA provides official confirmation, speculation remains the only option. Nonetheless, the prospect of outfitting Sims reminiscent of Neve Campbell in The Craft within luxurious castles brings excitement.
Meanwhile, a new expansion titled “For Rent” is available. It transforms Sims into tenants and landlords, allowing them to move around while accumulating funds to buy property or delving into the housing market with substantial investments. Priced at £34.99 like any expansion, it has received an Overwhelmingly Negative review score on Steam. Many complaints cite game-breaking bugs and fragmented lots, drawing unfavorable comparisons to the notorious Apartments expansion. While it may serve as a temporary diversion while awaiting castle-themed content, the dissatisfaction within the community is apparent.
