NEW YORK – Oct. 28, 2008
Paradox Interactive today announced a new expansion pack for the geo-political, military strategy game Supreme Ruler 2020, developed by BattleGoat Studios, called Global Crisis.
“This is the first time we’ve developed an expansion pack and we wanted to ensure that we had significant new content for our dedicated players to enjoy,” remarked David Thompson, BattleGoat’s Lead Designer and Co-Founder.
“At the core of the expansion pack, we created a whole new sandbox style campaign that paints a new and far more intricate portrayal of the world of 2020 based on many of the ominous events from recent real-world headlines. Anyone who’s played our game knows that the possibilities to change the underlying storyline for new play experiences are limitless. There’s always something going on in the world, thanks to human nature, that can easily escalate into a conflict.”
In addition to this expanded gameplay element, Global Crisis includes many new features:
20 new scenarios which more than doubles the number of scenarios that originally shipped within the game
Additional new multiplayer scenarios
New campaign/sandbox map along a new storyline leading players towards World War III
New scenario features including scripted and random events
Improved unit control and grouping
Expanded tech tree
New units and unit meshes
Additional game lobby options
More tutorials and in-game tips
User interface improvements
