Europa Universalis III delves deeply into the areas of exploration, trade, warfare and diplomacy and is an epic strategy game where players take control of a nation and guide it through the ages to become a great global empire. In Europa Universalis III the team has focused on creating an interface that is intuitive and easier to get into while still staying true to the core and keeping game play intelligent.

The Paradox development team has been working on the game and its new engine for close to twelve months and the game will carry the characteristic trademarks of Paradox Grand Strategy titles: immense depth and historical content paired with challenging gameplay and replayability value. At the same time focus has been put on making it easier for casual strategy fans to get into this game.

The Europa Universalis series put Paradox Interactive on the map as a global developer and has been awarded with Editor Choice Awards by sites like IGN, Strategy Gaming Online and Firing Squad.

"The EU franchise is one of our most successful brands and this production is the biggest one so far in our company's history," said Fredrik W Lindgren, Director of Publishing at Paradox Interactive. "Europa Universalis III is sure to bring more fans to the genre while existing fans will be pleasantly surprised by our vision and execution of the game".

First screenshots will be released next month while concept art is available at this time. Paradox has also teamed up with Craig Mullins, renowned artist involved in many major gaming titles.
