Paradox Development Studio is back with the fourth instalment of the game that defined the Grand Strategy Genre. Europa Universalis IV gives you control of a nation to guide through the years in order to create a dominant global empire.

To be released on the 13th of August I am sure many of you will be excited by this one! You can pre order it now for £34.99 so it's quite expensive but they are a big name studio and it's a big and popular game. If you pre order you get a unit pack DLC for free.
You can also get the Digital Extreme Edition for £39.99 which comes with a few extras!

The system requirements may leave a few of you out in the cold and rain as the game at a minimum requires a graphics card with 1024MB RAM, it may not work with Intel for example either.

The game according to others plays in a similar fashion to Crusader Kings 2 but has enough differences so if you didn't get to grips with that game, this may be the one for you to sink your teeth into! Article taken from GamingOnLinux.com.

Crap article, proof read and get your facts straight before you post. For example, what's a "Unity" pack?

Wow I spelt one word wrong, move along. Oh and thanks for visiting :)·

What facts have I got wrong exactly? The answer is none as all the information comes from the developers directly, boom!

Cranky? Not at all :) in a good mood today ;)

Just find it funny that the article was apparently crap and I needed to check my facts over one tiny spelling error, people make me laugh.

Paradox has really invested in the Linux Platform. Would be nice to see one of the darling "commercial" indie game Mount and Blade also featured on the Linux portfolio.
