New Details on Supreme Ruler 2020 Announced

(February 1, 2008) Paradox Interactive and BattleGoat Studios are pleased to release new details on their upcoming Geo-political strategy game, Supreme Ruler 2020. One of the innovative new features is the wide-open "Super Sandbox" mode, which allows players to take control of nearly any country or region of the world.

Supreme Ruler 2020 will ship with three Super Sandbox maps:

- "Modern World" is a map that mirrors the world of the near future. Play as the United States, military super-power and economic engine of the world, or play as an emerging African nation, or any one of over 180 independent regions.

- "Shattered World" represents an alternate future where major nations have crumbled and smaller regions fight for power and influence. Play as an American state, a Canadian Province, or a sub-region of Europe, Russia, or China.

- "Hot Spots" adds challenges in some of the world's most unstable regions - deal with situations in Kashmir, Palestine, Tibet, Kurdistan, Kosovo, Western China, and more.

Supreme Ruler 2020 features an economic and geo-political simulation of the real world unmatched in any other strategy game, and also features a tactical military model that allows players to plan and fight battles at the battalion level - zoom in to see an individual city or zoom out to see the entire world!

The 'no limits' design of Supreme Ruler 2020 allows players to battle it out for a small region of the world, or wage military campaigns against hundreds of regions across entire continents and oceans. Play one of the included missions or scenarios, or just play the world in Super Sandbox and watch the future unfold. Nearly unlimited options for customization and modding will also allow creation of new scenarios and 'what if' situations.

Supreme Ruler 2020 is scheduled for release in May 2008, to be published worldwide by Paradox Interactive.
