naval strategy title, East India Company, have started.

Customers who pre-order East India
Company: Privateer will be given early access to the free add-on “Designer’s
Cut.” The add-on, which introduces new gameplay enhancements based off of input
from both the game’s developers and East India Company fans on the Paradox
forums, will release to the rest of the public on October 27.

East India Company: Privateer

  • Two new campaigns in which you
    play the game as a privateer and complete missions for different nations.

  • New missions, including destroying
    forts, locating and either sinking or capturing enemy ships, blockading enemy
    ports and escorting friendly fleets.

  • New commander skills to fit the
    life of a privateer, such as "False Colors," which allows the player to get
    close to the victim without them perceiving a threat, and "Critical Hit,"
    which gives the player a chance to hit an enemy ship’s magazine, causing the
    enemy ship to explode.

East India Company: Privateer
requires the original game East India Company, which is now available at 50% off
for a limited time with the purchase of Privateer at most digital download
portals. The expansion East India Company: Privateer will be exclusively
