    Europa Universalis: Crown of the North - Screenshots

    Hi guys,

    Just wanted to let you know that we have just publsihed some new sccreenshots on the Wargamer website.

    The Wargamer (http://www.wargamer.com) has published a set of six exclusive new screenshots from Europa Universalis: Crown of the North. Developed by Paradox Entertainment and published by Strategy First, Europa Universalis: Crown of the North is an upcoming strategy game set during the Middle Ages, or more specifically, the Swedish civil war. The article includes the six new screenshots and a brief introduction to the game's setting, features and links to our past reviews of the well-regarded Europa Universalis series.

    To read the article, please visit: http://www.wargamer.com/articles/eu_...h_screenshots/

    Cheers

    Looks like it could be a good game. I'm ready for something new.

    I've played that game, I believe it was called just Svea Rike 3 (kina like Swedish nation 3, my translation is kinda crappy). IMHO it's far from the level of EU2. There are a few units, all quite poorly balanced (but then again, units were poorly balanced throughout those ages). The basic setup is to play as one of the contenders of the crown, and eradicate all of the others to become the new king. (which btw is a breeze to do...)

    but is it just same content in a new wrapping and title, or is a upgraded Svea Rike III?

    I have heard this is going to be quite a significant upgrade to Svea Rike III (which I have never played). It is also going to include an upgraded version of EU2 (1.07, maybe 1.08 who knows?) and I think new events too.
    Needless to say, I will buy it as early as I can get hold of it ;-) and also a copy for an elder relative of mine who likes these sorts of games.

    Great idea!!!!

    If we ever do an EUIII we should only have ONE song, and it won't ever be turned off. Infact we will reprogram your stereo and tv to play it forever and ever!

    FALALAALALALALA!

    LOL @ Carolus' title "Punk in Drublic" - and can you believe that the first time I glanced at it, I actually read it "correctly" without even thinking? LOL...I guess dyslexia has its advantages at times!
