Paradox Interactive has released a launch trailer and some screenshots for its latest grand strategy game, Europa Universalis IV. It's been five years since the third installment in the series, and Paradox has definitely improved on the formula since then. The company's last release, Crusader Kings II, is by far the best-looking game they have put out and they plan on improving beyond that.
Paradox also released a developer diary that discusses how they are remaking the map feel more organic. They want the territories to be more accurate to historical and geographical borders.
