Real time strategy developer Paradox Interactive recently hosted their own convention in Reykjavik, Iceland and made an impact by showcasing new footage from all their upcoming strategy titles.
First, there’s March of the Eagles which focuses Napoleonic war. Of course, players will be able to control various major powers and try to overthrow each other in a mad power bid. Whether it’ll give a new challenge for grizzled strategy game fans remains to be seen.
March of the Eagles will see release for PC on February 18th.
Then there was Europa Universalis IV. This is the latest in Paradox’s flagship franchises, and allows for open ended gameplay and choices for players looking to relive (and remake) history as they see fit. The game allows for 32 players in multiplayer and a whopping 400 years of history – not to mention a ton of new improvements in the interface, economy, and the sheer choice in rising to the top.
East vs. West: A Hearts of Iron Game was also showcased. Slated to release in Q2 2013, it promises a sleek rendition of the Cold War. Spies, arms deals, global annihilation and the United Nations all figure in BL-Logic’s title.
