Great update to a classic strategy game5 Posted by: from: Newport Beach, CA on Great update to the Europa Universalis franchise. I just started playing it but the gameplay is very clean and easy to grasp. The designers did a great job making it all-encompassing and historically accurate. The best part is there are so many different ways you can win in the game. Very happy with my purchase!

    Imagine a world that is yours. Every nation rises and falls at your whim. Empires are born under your careful watch. The lives of generations are destined by your actions. The power of one dominant global empire rests in your hands — that is, of course, if your strategizing measures up. In Europa Universalis IV, your potential is truly tested, since every choice you make and tactic you employ has the power to impact global history. Rife with immersive tactical depth, this game brings true exploration, warfare, diplomacy and historical accuracy into your home and forces you to ask yourself — if you had the power to rule the world, what kind of leader would you be?

    Shape an entire society by choosing your form of government, trade politics and more as you explore the possibilities of god-like control in Europa Universalis IV. Thousands of historical events guide you as the pages of history books come to life, creating a unique atmosphere depending on the country you play. More than 300 years of gameplay await with the opportunity to navigate a lush topographic map in full 3D as you make the world your ultimate playground. Make your choices carefully, however, because they shape the outcome — the caliber of king you select influences your decisions in the new monarch power system. Join up to 31 of your friends in cooperative gameplay that lets you sculpt a nation together or battle it out against worthy opponents in epic multiplayer. Will you rule with an iron fist? Or practice peaceful diplomacy? Are you the kind of person to foster deep loyalty in his subjects? Or will your nation be rife with rebellion? Only you can decide what the fate of your world will be.
