Conquer Europe

Strategy game Europa Universalis to reach Britain in March

Koch Distribution have announced that they will be publishing "Europa Universalis" in the UK, with the game due for release on March 2nd. Developed by Paradox, the Swedish company behind last year's novel flight combat game "Airfix Dogfighter", Europa is based on the top selling board game of the same name. It certainly looks impressive in scope, offering you the chance to lead any of a dozen European nations from England to Turkey and Sweden to Venice, with over seven hundred provinces across the continent to conquer and a wide range of historical missions to dig your teeth into. There will also be multiplayer support for up to eight people to play together over the internet or a LAN, with diplomacy, economics, warfare and exploration all playing their part.
