Paradox Interactive, a publisher of games and an admirer of thespians, today released the first episode in a live-action mini-series for Europa Universalis IV, the critically acclaimed empire-building strategy title from Paradox Development Studio. The new series, entitled 'Frenemies', showcases the lengths that ordinary people will go to in order to achieve global conquest in a multiplayer game of Europa Universalis IV, including fragile alliances, brutal warfare, and unexpected diplomatic provisos. Also, someone explains what casus belli means! The first episode is available to watch now:
Europa Universalis IV allows players to rewrite history as they see fit, guiding either tiny, unlikely nations to prominence as global superpowers through cunning and force, so finally Naples can seize control of the English Channel like they always truly intended to. In order to allow players a more direct role in guiding the course of history, Paradox has begun the 'Rewrite History Contest' for fans to create their own in-game events and share them with fellow players on the Paradox Interactive Forums. The top suggestions will be selected and officially added to Europa Universalis IV in a forthcoming game update. For full details on the contest, visit forum.paradoxplaza.com/Rewrite-history.
For those who find altering history a bit complex, we've constructed a Beginners Guide to Europa Universalis IV. It can be downloaded free of charge from our fourm: forum.paradoxplaza.com.
