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.
Paradox Entertainment internally developed the Windows-version but has decided to licence the right to Virtual Programming Ltd who has specialist competence in converting into the MacOS.

- Europa Universalis has established itself as the ultimate historical real-time strategy game. With its sophisticated audience it is ideal for the Mac and we hope this will lead to more Mac versions of our games , says Theodore Bergquist, CEO of Paradox Entertainment.

- Virtual Programming Ltd are extremely pleased to bring Europa Universalis II to the Mac platform. Our goal is to seek quality, entertaining titles that will reward the Mac gamer, and Europa Universalis II is one such title. It is our hope that we can work with Paradox Entertainment in the future to see more of their great titles on the Mac platform, says Paul Lesurf, Managing Director of Virtual Programming Ltd.

Europa Universalis II has broadened the games horizons. The game spans more than four hundred years (1419-1820) and the player can choose to play any nation that ever existed in the world. That is over 100 playable nations, including the Japanese Shogunate, the Chinese Empire and African tribes! Several key features in the game are open for players to change according to their own tastes, such as historical event flow and scenario constructions, etc.
