Strategy games have a bad habit of being addictive. They like to pull me in and refuse to let me go until the early hours of the morning. That's the main reason why I've stayed away from many of the titles from Paradox. Everyone else that can handle it should take a few minutes to watch this video for Europa Universalis III: Divine Wind.
Fans of the series will get a chance to deal with the Far East like never before. There are three factions in China to manage, new building types, a more realistic trade system, and more. The video below lets the developers themselves talk about the changes they are bringing to the game. Europa Universalis III: Divine Wind will be released on December 14 for $19.99.
