By - | Views: 11,728

Jujubee S.A. and 1C Entertainment recently released Realpolitiks II into Early Access, and they've confirmed their plans to support Linux with it.

This modern-day real-time grand strategy game has you assume office of any contemporary country in the world and lead it towards the new century as the shining example of democracy and liberty, or create your own totalitarian dystopia and wage war against all your enemies.

Speaking to the publisher ahead of release, they confirmed with us that they "need a bit more time to prepare the Linux version so we have decided to launch it in the near future" and that it's also confirmed on their Steam forum too. The first game was also on Linux so it will be great to see the series continue to be officially supported by the developer.

Feature Highlight:

  • Dominate the Globe - Choose from 208 contemporary nations (including Sealand & Kiribati) and conquer your opponents. Adapt your strategy accordingly whether you start as a superpower or a small independent nation.
  • New Modern Warfare - A brand-new combat system enables full control of your units on the battlefield while taking into account strategic advantages such as the weather, terrain, equipment, and a whole lot more.
  • Expanded Management System - Create a communist utopia, a completely free market nation, or become a tyrant overseeing your citizens’ every step. With over 700 projects and technologies to choose from, you decide the path to greatness.
  • Improved Diplomacy - Engage in advanced negotiations to establish new trade routes or military access to neighboring regions. With a completely reworked AI, and new Favor and Investment systems that allow you to influence other countries - diplomacy becomes a crucial tool once again, especially as other leaders will prove hard negotiators.
  • Advanced Espionage - Conduct clandestine actions with your spies, steal breakthrough technologies to further increase your military power, and invent new ways of mass destruction. Dominate your foes from the shadows.
  • New and Unpredictable Events - Over 1000 new events ranging from minor provincial issues to a world-threatening meteor strike. Be wary of the ever-changing world as each playthrough will be completely different.
  • Growth By Infrastructure - Buildings are a major part of your campaign as they enable you to recruit more units, train your spies and generals faster, defend against rocket attacks, or increase the supply range to your armies.
  • Mod Support - Use a plethora of in-game tools to create your very own campaigns, scenarios, units, and nations.

You can follow it on GOG and Steam.

welp. That was one of the worst trailers I've seen in a while. Grand "action" strategy

So far, it seems to suffer quite bad optimization, even for the GUI not being responding enough. Many names and characters are white-christian-sided, even if you interact with black african countries, or middle east, etc. Not a lot of options to set a game. Very bad informations delivered to player about what is doing what and how and why. Conditions and statistics are lackluster too.

Other than that, it’s a straight and major improvement over the first game, but the first game was very shallow, so "better" might not be enough. It’s still Early Access, but that’s 1C and Jujubee, both not really known to deliver well polished and balanced and enjoyable games. They take the niche "1/2 to 2/3 good"...

Quoting: bekowelp. That was one of the worst trailers I've seen in a while. Grand "action" strategy
You gotta have some mercy with the publisher here.
They are trying to sell a grand strategy game - and for some reason decided that "action trailer!!!!!" is the way to go.

1C can be very endearingly oldschool sometimes
