The wait is over and the time has come; time to get to your local retail store to pick up Europa Universalis II. Strategy First Inc and Paradox Entertainment are pleased to announce that the sequel to the award-winning Europa Universalis, shipped today.
"When we published Europa Universalis, we knew our partnership with Paradox would be a lasting one,” says Don McFatridge, President of Strategy First. “I think Europa Universalis surprised many people. It's a great game and EU II is even better!"

“We are confident that Europa Universalis II will appeal to the wider audience as well as the serious gamers,” says Gustaf Magnuson, Marketing Director at Paradox Entertainment. “We are also very proud of completing a huge game like EUII on time and on budget!”

Europa Universalis won critical acclaim and secured a firm fan base when it crept onto the RTS scene in early February 2001. The press embraced the game
giving it great reviews and even awarding it their Editor's Choice Award. One reviewer was quoted as saying “This game easily rivals Civilization…”

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.

For any strategy fan or history buff, Europa Universalis I and II are the perfect gift!
