All Roads Yada Yada

Paradox has announced its next historical strategy game, tentatively titled Europa Universalis: Rome.

Europa Universalis: Rome will cover the time period from the first Punic War to the start of the true Empire. Players will have thousand of gameplay choices ranging from country, culture, provincial and character options to name but a few, making each and every game infinitely customizable and truly unique.

Long time readers know that this is my favorite historical time period. So, naturally, I will buy this game and the nitpick it to death.

The targeted release window is the second quarter of 2008.

    Oh sweet! I would have prefered the Hellenistic period but this will do nicely 8)

    This is the Hellenistic Age, mostly. I mean, you lose the 50 years between the death of Alexander and the Pyrrhic Wars, but you still get all those feuding Greek kingdoms in the East.

    Excellent! I guess I fail at history. Re reading it I misread the post. I mistook the first punic war for the third. Yes its those feuding greek successors I am looking forward to and also the chance that Rome doesnt become the dominant power.
