Europa Universalis 4 dev diary explains 'historically immersive' technology

A new developer diary from Paradox Interactive, creator of upcoming strategy game Europa Universalis 4, explains how the team has tried to make the game's technology "more historically immersive."

Project lead Thomas Johansson heads the discussion in the video above on how technology has improved and changed gameplay.

"What we've done with technology in E4 is that we've tried to consolidate the techno levels of it and make them much more interesting," Johansson said. "We want every level to feel that you're actually doing something for a country and going forward and really changing something."

Europa Universalis 4 was announced in August 2012. Like previous games, it will feature open-ended gameplay and player choice, as well as improvements on economy and interface. The game can support up to 32 players cooperating in a single nation.

Europa Universalis 4 is expected to launch for Windows PC.
