Supreme Ruler 2020 confronts Global Crisis

NEW YORK, January 16th 2008 - With uncanny timing, Paradox Interactive today raises the DEFCON level to a new high. On the horizon, a fresh set of deadly challenges emerge in the first expansion for its grand strategy wargame, Supreme Ruler 2020 - Global Crisis.

As the world is confronted with a tension filled situation in Gaza and Russia threatens to turn off Europe's gas supply, the nations of the Earth reach out with tentative arms of diplomacy. Yet the destructive spectre of war lurks ever-present, somewhere ahead at the next political crossroads. Global Crisis presents a world where events run in parallel with those of today. Will there be peace and fair trade for all? Or is it just a matter of time before war descends upon all nations!
