Strategy connoisseur Paradox Interactive is one of the companies at Gamescom that revealed some important novelties. Just like Sony’s new reveals, Paradox announced 2 sequels for some of their most important franchises: Europa Universalis and Cities in Motion.
The paragon of deep strategy games will return in Europa Universalis IV. Alongside some visual improvements with a raised topographic map, the PC title will also include some new implementations and enhanced features. Nations are more flexible than other titles and leaders will now have more impact on gameplay with the use of their respective traits. More so, players will receive help from a slew of historic figures throughout their historic campaign. The franchise has always paid close attention to be as authentic as possible.
Elements such as a trade and diplomacy system have been renewed to offer deeper and better experiences. Online play also receives a makeover with standalone servers, new matchmaking and improved chatting. Custom fanatics may like to hear that Europa Universalis IV will allow for the modification of just about any aspect to create your own game. You can get excited with this short teaser that follows the announcement.
Cities in Motion 2 is all about planning. This building simulation centers itself on public transportation and its efficiency. Players will take on the world’s largest cities and try to run a solid engineering business in the creation of the most affordable, smooth running and effective transit network known to man. This will require a lot of planning, as well as aftercare, as players need to support control of their vehicles and routes and manage possibilities to upgrade and improve the whole. The PC sequel will add new multiplayer options to co-manage this effort or compete against each other for calculated bragging rights. A short trailer is also present here. Cities in Motion 2 is planned for completion in Q2 2013.
Lastly, the publisher sent out a new trailer for their dungeon strategy game Impire. The collaboration withdeveloper Cyanide is looking more and more like a tribute to Dungeon Keeper. The clip takes a deeper look at how dungeons are made, tunnels are dug out and rooms are installed. The whole gets lit with a variety of colors. Our imp legion will need to collect resources to create their empire of dirt and so we see them rummaging around and digging for precious goods. More importantly, you’ll be able to fight in Impire, a lot. The evil, contemplating leader can amass an army of imps and then send them forth to battle. Dungeons may be overrun with the undead, as seen in the trailer. Additionally, you’ll be able to create squads of imps. The rest is just a lot more fighting.
