Paradox Interactive has announced that Europa Universalis IV, the first entry in the long-running grand strategy game franchise since 2007, will be coming late next year.
Announced via a Twitch.tv interview, Europa Universalis IV previously went by the codename “Project Truman,” and is based on Paradox’s internal engine.
Known features include an upgraded 3D map; an improved trade system; empire building; a more streamlined interface; and “more historic lands” than any other title in the series.
Despite not launching until 2013, Paradox says that Europa Universalis IV will be showcased at Gamescom next week.
UPDATE: An brief trailer has been released to accompany the announcement. Check it out below.
