Strategy First Inc and Paradox Entertainment are pleased to announce that Europa Universalis II has gone gold.!!!! Cant wait till i get my grubby hands on my copy ...
“This title is sure to follow in the footsteps of its award winning predecessor, Europa Universalis. The RTS community has been waiting anxiously for this day to finally arrive!” said Adam Phillips, Product Manager for Strategy First.

“Europa Universalis II expands the scope of the first game in a way that we are confident will please the players as well as others interested in games with deep historical content and high playing value” says Gustaf Magnuson, Marketing Director for Paradox Entertainment.

Since the release of Europa Universalis in February, the press and gaming community have embraced this RTS and had nothing but praise to give it. One reviewer was quoted as saying “This game easily rivals Civilization…” The second installment in this series is sure to bring the gaming community even more joy!

From the medieval battles of Jeanne D’Arc to the fantastic empires of the Incas to the flaming wars of Napoleon, Europa Universalis II invites you to take the seat as the ruler of a superpower for 400 epic years. The sequel includes new features, new player nations and a huge period of history to sink your teeth into.

The challenge begins in 1419 ­ the 100 years war between France and England - and ends with the rise and eventual fall of one of Europe’s greatest strategists, Napoleon. History is truly in your hands as you get the chance to take on the role of the Colonizing Might of Spain, the feudal warlords of Samurai Japan as well as the small trading nation of Genoa. Europa Universalis II will surely be on every gamer’s holiday wish list this season!
