Explore new colonies. Crush them in their rise to freedom.
Paradox Interactive and Paradox Development Studio continue their march towards the globe-conquering strategy fest that is Europa Universalis IV. Beginning 1444 AD to the late 18th century, the game will involve conquering the world, traversing across oceans and just crushing freedom far and wide. Paradox Interactive has thus prepared a developer diary for the same, featuring project lead Thomas Johansson who showcases the different possibilities open to players.
Not content with exploration? Take to naval warfare and just outright assert your dominance. Then colonize to your heart’s content and move on to the next territory. It’s an empire-building game – so go big or go home.
Europa Universalis IV is scheduled to release on August 13th 2013 for the PC. Look out for the Founding Fathers – yes, those Founding Fathers – and trying to suppress the rise to freedom from the colonies. Sort of like Assassin’s Creed III but from the perspective of the opposition (and looking more enjoyable. Zing!).
