Paradox Interactive Unleashes East India Company:
Today, Paradox Interactive has released East India Company: Privateer, an
expansion for the popular naval strategy title, East India Company. The
expansion introduces players to the nebulous world of the privateer, who forges
alliances based solely on a thirst for fortune and will go to any length to see
that his job is fulfilled.
Featuring new campaigns and commander skills, East India
Company: Privateer offers players even more intense action on the high seas.
East India Company: Privateer Features:
• 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 available at 50% off during a limited time at most
digital download portals. The expansion East India Company: Privateer will be
exclusively available for digital download at all major digital download portals
for a suggested retail price of $9.99 and ç9.99.
