Paradox Interactive and Paradox Development Studio today released Res Publica, the newest expansion for Europa Universalis IV, the award-winning grand strategy game of empire-building and global domination. Res Publica provides eager emperors and dedicated dictators with new options for trading and governing their empires, and is available now for Windows, Mac, and Linux for $4.99.
Historical accuracy is something that Europa Universalis IV is driven by. One of the ways the base game faltered (which was noted in the review), was the way the trade system was severely lacking and kind of superficial in the ways that it didn’t go as deep as it should have, evidenced by the lack of a tutorial. Paradox Development Studio has done more than augment an overhauled trade economy, they’ve given new avenues for a new type of economic power without bringing about war.
As someone relatively new to Paradox strategy titles, Europa Universalis IV thoroughly challenged me. I can say that while the learning curve is extremely high, there’s a want to keep trying. And try I did, and much of anything, spending more time with the game allowed me a better understanding of the core mechanics, but not after watching YouTube Let’s Plays and looking at Wiki’s.
Paradox Interactive, a publisher of games that never settles down, today revealed details on the first expansion to Europa Universalis IV, the award-winning empire building game developed by Paradox Development Studio for Windows, Mac, and Linux.
