After spending two whole days playing Europa Universalis IV in Stockholm last month, Paradox's flagship grand strategy title has become one of my most anticipated upcoming games. The Swedish studio recently announced a firm world-wide release date of August 13 for PC, Mac, and Linux.
Pre-order is now available, with the digital "Extreme" edition available for $44.99. This version comes with a slew of extras from unit and music packs, as well as some unannounced bonuses that will be revealed in July and August. Those who pre-order the standard edition will also get some of these bonuses.
