Here's the deal. You're a kid in a candy shop, except the shop is history and the candy is decisions. The latest and greatest entry in the series that defined “grand strategy” is coming in 2013, and there are more ways to manage your sprawling empire than ever before. Pick your favorite country from hundreds available, every one of them unique, and govern it however you choose to in an addictive battle for survival, for territory, or to bend history itself to your will. Can you even handle that sort of freedom? Add in 32 person multiplayer and the new Monarch Power feature, where your spread of choices is influenced by the caliber of the ruler you have at the top, and you have a game where every single play session will be utterly unique. We want you to gorge yourself on strategy, and see just how much you can take. It is the Age of Discovery, after all.
