Europa Universalis IV continues the traditions of Paradox Interactive’s grand historical strategy series and – while offering somewhat simplified gameplay – still maintains its trademark complexity and realism. You may become the ruler of almost any country between the years 1444 and 1820, trying to keep your independence through four hundred years of war, diplomacy and development.
