1UP Previews Europa Universalis: Rome

1UP writes: "All roads lead to Rome, proverbially speaking, even if they sometimes meander by way of the Crusades, the Enlightenment, the Industrial Revolution, and World War II. Fans on developer Paradox's official forums (presently 84,000 members with a collective 7.1 million posts) lobbied for a "Rome" game years ago, but Paradox stalled, opting instead to hone its toolset and fortify its games' foundation. Now it's ready -- finally -- to tackle that famously tumultuous Mediterranean power scrabble between the catalytic First Punic War in 264 B.C. and the momentous point at which Octavian became Augustus "the autocrat," kick-starting the Pax Romana ("the Roman peace") 237 years later".

The story is too old to be commented.
