6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story
Virtual Programming has announced the release of Divine Wind, the fourth expansion pack for the Mac version of Paradox Interactive's historical strategy game Europa Universalis III. In the expansion players travel to medieval Japan and assume the role of one of four major daimyos vying for influence with the Emperor and control over the Shogunate. Divine Wind features a new graphical style and a detailed map filled with many new provinces, including internal Chinese factions that must be managed to keep the Mandate of Heaven.
"To get myself ready to play Divine Wind, I sat down for a weekend-long Akira Kurosawa samurai movie marathon," said Virtual Programming CEO Mark Hinton. "That helped me imagine myself as Toshiro Mifune leading my troops to victory. I just wish I could have experienced a battle in the rain."Europa Universalis III: Divine Wind is available now for $19.95 (£14.95, €19.95). Check out the links below for more information.
"Divine Wind delves into aspects of feudal Japan that no movie ever could, but it can't hurt to use Kurosawa's impressive body of work for inspiration," said Paradox Interactive's Fredrik Wester. "We find it also helps to keep this Chinese proverb in mind: 'Tens of thousands of bones will become ashes when one general achieves his fame.' We certainly hope that will be our players."
Divine Wind also features dozens of new culture-specific building types, giving players greater control over province development, along with enhanced diplomacy functions offering more options for alliances and peace negotiations. In addition, trade development is more realistic and allows players to control strategic resources that grant bonuses. As players build their Japanese kingdom, they can unlock over 50 achievements.
