The first thing I saw on Twitter this morning was at least a dozen people linking to “the greatest video game trailer of all time” – a Jazz-voice introduction to Leviathan: Warships. It’s certainly a contender.

“Colonialism. The enforced spread of the rule of reason,” this launch trailer for Victoria 2′s new Heart of Darkness expansion comments. “But who is going to spread it amongst the colonizers?” Let’s all pause to consider the evils of history for a moment before diving in and making a landgrab ahead of the French and the Belgians.

Paradox Interactive, known best as a studio for PC diehards, if going to make a game for the PlayStation 4. They don’t exactly know what it will be yet, but producer Gordon van Dyke told Joystiq at GDC that whatever it ends up being, either a port of an existing game like War of the Roses or something we haven’t seen, it won’t be “a cheap PC port on console.”

Yep, Paradox Interactive, that game publisher we so love for the likes of Crusader Kings and Magicka, will be publishing ebooks. And not just one type of ebook, but lots of different kinds. And it all begins with A Year with Mojang: Behind the Scenes of Minecraft by Thomas Arnroth.

Newly-announced spin-off Magicka: Wizard Wars isn’t a MOBA, Paradix’s David Nisshagen told PCGamesN. “We’re actually more thinking of it as a NOBA,” he said – whatever that means – stating flatly that “It’s not a MOBA.” There’s no cooldowns, lanes, inhibitors or classes, but teams of up to four players will fight to capture and hold spawn locations before wiping out the competition (assuming they can avoid the franchise’s trademark friendly fire). No release date or pricing information as yet.

War of the Roses: Kingmaker is a re-release of the popular medieval combat sim, packaged with a new mode, Assault, and all DLC to date – including the vocal stylings of Brian Blessed as the Earl of Warwick. All this extra content will be added to the existing version soon, but this is a cheap way to buy in and grab all the extra DLC if you’re yet to get on board. Check out a trailer through the break, and pick it up on March 21.

Crusader Kings 2: The Old Gods is an unusual expansion, pushing the game’s start date back to 867 AD. It’s a historical period many of us are less familiar with, and in a new developer post, lead designer Henrik Fåhraeus describes a fledgling Christian and Muslim world surrounded by tribes of “heathens” – all of whom are playable. Take control of the Vikings, Tartars or Magyar and change history, or even promote the interests of the Orthodox church. The dev diary can be found on the Paradox forums and is the first in a weekly series. Crusader Kings 2: The Old Gods was announced in February for a second quarter release, exclusively on PC; check out some new screens through the break.

Cities in Motion launches on PC on April 2, for $20. Pre-orders can be made directly through Paradox and its digital distribution partners.

Paradox Interactive has pushed out patch 1.01 for March of the Eagles. The patch adds in the same editing suite seen in Crusader Kings 2, allowing for some pretty spectacular modding opportunities, and also adds new content such as historical generals. It applies a few fixes, too – better retreat paths, and not allowing low morale units to enter enemy controlled territory, for example. Full patch notes are available on the Paradox forums. March of the Eagles focuses on the Napoleonic Wars and is available exclusively on PC.
