Europa Universalis IV, one of my most anticipated releases of the year, is only a fortnight away. As we enter August, the final pre-order bonus has been revealed by Paradox Interactive, and it's a doozy: a free copy of Crusader Kings II and a savegame exporter.
The latter might not seem like a big deal, but it's a real treat. The exporter will convert a CKII savegame file into a EUIV one, allowing players to keep their empire and their holdings, and experience the Renaissance altered by the centuries of medieval intrigue and conquest that played out in their game of Crusader Kings.
To show how the exporter will work, Paradox is showcasing the feature in a livestream right now on their Twitch channel. Handy.
I felt genuine delight and a little confusion from Sony's gamescom press conference
