Europa Universalis Preview
4:07 PM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

Wargamer has posted a preview of Europa Universalis, a complex strategy/simulation that puts you in control of a European nation. Originally
released for the PC in Europe, the game is now coming to the US and to the Mac
thanks to the efforts of the German company Hyperion. While war
is obviously a part of this historically-accurate game, it's definitely more
than just a war sim. Here's an excerpt explaining more about fighting in the game:

Warfare in Europa Universalis is abstracted and, very appropriately, is not overstated. Ground forces are comprised of infantry, cavalry, and artillery. The effectiveness of units is influenced by morale and technology level achieved in addition to any talented generals attached to the unit. When belligerent armies are present in a territory, they will fight until one unit is either destroyed or breaks and retreats. If an enemy fortress is present, the victorious army will begin a siege.
The preview features several screen shots
and much information on this immense game. The last word from Hyperion was that
work had yet to begin on the Mac version, but we'll be sure to bring you any new
information on its progress. Hyperion just shipped the Mac OS version of Shogo: Mobile Armor Division, a first-person shooter classic.
