    Victoria 2: Heart of Darkness

    Victoria II: Heart of Darkness announced! The expansion focuses on the Scramble for Africa as you compete with other colonial powers and experience international crises which require Great Power mediation if the world is to avoid war.

    More information coming soon!
    http://www.paradoxplaza.com/games/vi...rt-of-darkness

    It's what you've all been waiting for!

    Main features:

    - Experience a brand new colonization system: Use your navy to expand your empire, compete against other colonial powers and struggle to maintain your overseas control. Colonial conflicts can spiral out of control and become international crises where they will have to be decided by diplomatic negotiations or risk costly wars.

    - Battle your enemies in the new naval combat system: Together with the new colonization system, your navies are more important than ever. We have revamped the entire naval combat system and made it much more detailed and exciting with a new system of gun ranges and maneuvering into positions for battles. New powerful battleships join the other classes of ships to bridge the gap to Dreadnoughts.

    -Prepare for International Crises: Around the world international crises continually call on the Great Powers to mediate and compromise, with war always being the last resort. As one of the lesser powers, use your influence to stir up the local flash points so you can use fleet footed diplomacy to get the Great Powers to right the wrongs that have been committed against your nation!

    - Follow the global events with the new newspaper system: You will receive reports on local and global events as well as the world's changing situation to keep up to date and get a greater sense of immersion. Over 60 newspapers, both historic and otherwise, periodically present you with the latest news reports of war, major events, royal gossip and other matters of interest.

    Q1

    IT IS OUT IN Q1

    *me excited*

    Also,

    As one of the lesser powers, use your influence to stir up the local flash points so you can use fleet footed diplomacy to get the Great Powers to right the wrongs that have been committed against your nation!
    isn't this more or less what Cavour did with Louis Napoleon to get Lombardy from Austria?

    New Colonial system? Check.

    New Naval system? Check.

    Expanded Diplomacy system? Check.

    My dreams are coming true.

    So no improvement of the land combat system ?AI ? That's not really good news,even if these features sound great.


    Edit: Also,the screenshot of the map scares me...

    We can also see two new mapmodes, one with a bomb icon, one with an anchor icon. Something to do with revolutions and something to do with the new naval system.

    In addition we can see a new great power variable below prestige, industry and army in the upper left corner, again with the anchor. From the looks of it there is now an upper cap on how many ships you can have.
    And from the pics of Britain it looks like the cap might be a soft cap, like in EU3. My take is that military power has been separated between army and navy in some way different from before.
