STOCKHOLM — January 14, 2014 — Paradox Interactive, a publisher of games and planter of flags, today released “Conquest of Paradise,” the first expansion to award-winning empire-building game Europa Universalis IV created by Paradox Development Studio. Available now for Windows, Mac, and Linux, Conquest of Paradise provides players of Paradox’s celebrated strategy game with an all-new set of challenges, sending them to the New World during the age of exploration.
Explorers and Emperors alike will find a completely randomized American continent added to their game, including features such as trading with the natives, establishing colonies, and new options for military conquest. Players can also take control of newly formed colonial nations – or play as one of several Native American Nations, complete with unique buildings, events, and mechanics.
