A new distribution is a new cause for joy. Notable digital stores again delight with their hands, allowing players to enjoy high-quality games in genres such as Strategy, Horror and Adventure…
In GOG 20th October distribution of one of the famous strategies released by Paradox has begun – Europa Universalis II… The distribution ends 24th… We will tell you more about this project below.…
New distribution from November 29
Europa Universalis II is one of the iconic historical strategies that can provide a unique experience in the global struggle for domination around the world. The times were chosen very eventful: from the 15th century to the 18th. Here you can find not only Jeanne d’Arc, the national heroine of France, but also Napoleon Bonaparte – an emperor who wanted to conquer the whole world.
The player can interact not only with these, but also other really existing personalities… He is also able to influence the historical events taking place in the world events… Gamer myself is free to determine the path that the nation chosen by him will take. However, the consequences of the actions taken by him are manifested not immediately, but only with time…
As the leader of a country, there will be a lot of time to be spent on the main task: finding balance between domestic and foreign policy. For this, the game offers the most carefully thought out system diplomacy… The systems of development, military power and trade have all undergone changes as well.
In addition to the culture familiar to many Europeans, as well as the Christian religion, the developers of Europa Universalis II added eastern directions. All this allowed us to make the game more deep on the issue of game mechanics.
Example. When concluding a peace treaty, a player can demand from another state any amount of gold, provinces and even diplomatic agreements. Only within reasonable limits.
So, the conclusion is the following: one of the best representatives of the Europa Universalis series offered a lot of new things. Various events, unusual alliances, a large number of actions and consequences – all this allows you to get unique memories.
