Free Add-On Announced for East
India Company

Control the Vast Ocean Like Never
Before with EIC "Designer’s Cut"

In its continuing efforts to deliver
the ultimate gaming experience to PC gamers, Paradox Interactive and Nitro Games
today announced a "Designer’s Cut" update for the hit naval strategy title, East
India Company. Based on ideas from the game’s developers, as well as feedback
from the loyal East India Company community, the development team has gone to
great lengths to ensure that players of East India Company experience everything
they could possibly desire as they assemble the strongest naval empire to sail
the seas.

The free add-on introduces a vast
amount of enhancements for improved gameplay, including new port views, the
ability to fight on land in island battles, the introduction of multiplayer
modes "Beehive" and "Breakthrough", history graphs to help track long term
progress, and many more new features to make East India Company a deeper
experience than ever before.

“In ‘Designer’s Cut’, we made
several improvements to the original game to make it even better," said Kim
Soares, lead designer for East India Company. "Some features were chosen from
the ideas presented to us by the East India Company community. This kind of
feedback from the active players is invaluable, as they have spent hundreds of
hours playing our game and know it inside and out."

The East India Company Designer’s
Cut will be available for download on October 27. Starting today, East India
Company is also available at a reduced price of $ 29.99/ç29.99 in retail and via
digital download.
