From Press Release:
PRAGUE, Czech Republic, February 15, 2018 – 1C is proud to announce that Realpolitiks, a streamlined real-time grand strategy game developed by Jujubee S.A., now boasts new content in the form of a free update as from today. A month from now, on March 15, 2018, the first DLC – Realpolitiks: “New Power” – is set to be released. Both updates will bring fresh content into the game, reflecting current world events, trends in international relations and contemporary political movements.
The free update for Realpolitiks provides additional features and technology projects with a view to unlocking further possibilities within the player’s country. The ”Outsourcing” project tree will allow players to generate more action points, which they will find particularly handy in later stages of the game. Additionally, the “Advanced Arms Import” military project tree has been upgraded and will now offer the possibility to import transport units which should greatly improve player mobility even in the early stages of the game.
Two features have also been added to the free update. From now on, players can change a nation’s name and flag before the start of the game, and later rename their own country, blocs, and countries that they will liberate in order to further customize their territory to their liking. Players can also give away provinces to countries claiming them and thus increase good relations.
Realpolitiks: “New Power” DLC injects fresh content and realism into the world of Realpolitiks. The “Korean Crisis” mini-scenario that features an actual nuclear threat, Non-Governmental Organizations that try to influence politics and new features for creating larger territorial units are highlights of this DLC.
The “Korean Crisis” mini-scenario points to one of the extensively discussed countries – North Korea. The North Korean nuclear threat becomes real in Realpolitiks: players can choose either side of the imminent conflict and have to deal with the explosive situation by either avoiding it, or adding more fuel to the fire. Playable nations include: the USA, China, North Korea and Japan.
An extra challenge is added through the presence of Non-Governmental organizations that exert additional pressure on today’s rulers and governments. Players have the options to work in secret with the mafia, support large corporations with subsidies and increased opportunities for business growth, maintain good relations with separatists and/or bring further harmony to their country through religion and more.
New diplomatic options in international politics include non-aggression pacts enabling peaceful coexistence with other nations, while political annexation offers another option for enlarging one’s territory without the use of military power. But still, everything comes at a price…
