Europa Universalis IV – Developer Diary: Technology

You will be leading a global empire later this year. However you can’t build an empire while sticking to the same old way of doing things, and you can’t let your enemies get too far ahead of you. As such, Europa Universalis IV will let you harness centuries of new technologies, ideas and governing styles in pursuit of global dominance.

In the new Europa Universalis IV video developer diary, project lead Thomas Johansson introduces you to how this sequel will transform the way you’ve previously researched technology in previous Europa Universalis games.
