Europa Universalis 4 posts musical new trailer

Friday, 21st June 2013 00:57 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Following on from the success of the Leviathan: Warships “Smooth Jazz” campaign, Paradox has highlighted the musical chops of another of its titles – grand strategy Europa Universalis 4. In the trailer below, the Brandenburg State Orchestra pelts out main theme The Voyage, composed by Paradox’s own Andreas Waldetoft.

The in-game version of The Voyage was captured from this performance, at the Carl Philipp Emanuel bach Konzerthalle, orchestrated by Grammy nominated conductor Bernd Ruf. If you like it, you can download it for free for a limited time.

Europa Universalis 4 releases on Linux, Mac and PC on August 13; pre-orders are now open.

    Is that Gargamel conducting ?

    Nice piece. Would really love to have Paradox developing on consoles.

    Not bad. I think I prefered it when Paradox used actual period-sounding classical and folk music in their games though, like in EU2.

    @1 ~ Why must people always come out with stupid comments like this? Firstly, if you’ve ever played a Paradox strategy game in your life, you’d know how wholly inappropriate they are not only for a controller setup but also for sitting on a couch far away from a TV instead of up close at a PC screen. The game would need to be streamlined and dumbed down beyond belief.

    Secondly, Paradox strategy games are NOT demanding games to play. If you own a PC to make posts on sites like VG247, you should own a PC capable of running their games. The whole “my PC isn’t powerful enough to play PC games” excuse may work for some games, but not this type.

    If you have a capable PC and your only reasoning for wanting the series stripped of all its depth and complexity is so you can play casually while laying down on a sofa, kindly fuck off……
