The sequel includes new features, new player nations, and a huge period of history. A release date was not announced. The challenge begins in 1419 with the 100 years war between France and England and ends with the rise and eventual fall of Napoleon. Players get the chance to guide Spain during its colonial years, the feudal warlords of Samurai Japan, and the small trading nation of Genoa.Het spel wordt 13 november in de winkels verwacht.
