Citizens of the Republic step forward; the power lies within you!

New York, USA– January 8th 2009– Paradox Interactive has today released a new trailer proclaiming exciting news from across the great cities of the ancient world. The trailer unveils the new character oriented features which grace the latest game of the award winning grand strategy series– Europa Universalis Rome: Vae Victis.

A Character Overview Screen allows control of all aspects of character management for all characters within a player’s domain. Important persons can now conspire and plot the downfall of the established ruling bodies, while those in power can reward the loyal and prominent with titles and roles of employment to keep them in positions of power.

Those that show too much corruption, ineptitude or disloyalty can be removed from their positions. Yet resentment may stir in the Senate or among rebellious factions if prominent characters are treated with disdain.

Loyal governors can be given a free hand to rule their territories as they see fit. If required they can be reinforced with regional armies to maintain order. But be warned, lest they turn against you and use those very forces to usurp the current government.

For now is the time to go forth across the sea, the time to fulfil the cry of the Senate.“Carthago Delenda Est.”
