NEW YORK – July 1, 2013 – If your dreams of leading a global empire have lain dormant for too long, the time to take action has arrived now that God is on your side. Paradox Interactive and Paradox Development Studio today released a brand new video developer diary for upcoming empire-building game, Europa Universalis IV, focused on the power of religion.
Delve deep into the delicate use of religion:
Project Lead Thomas Johansson details the intricacies of religion in countries throughout the world, and how differences between sects can both benefit and hinder your progress to historical greatness. Will you allow reformation when it rears its head in Europe or stand your ground for Catholicism? Will you forego Christianity entirely and become a champion of the Muslim or Buddhist faiths?
On Wednesday, July 3rd, emperors and empresses should make themselves comfortable in their screen-facing thrones for an epic Europa Universalis IV live stream. The broadcast starts at 6 pm GMT/ 7 pm BST/ 8 pm CEST / 11 am PDT, head to the official Paradox Interactive Twitch TV channel to see religion in action: twitch.tv/paradoxinteractive
