I saw that earlier today when booting up Steam at work for other purposes (my Lords of Waterdeep matches).

I preordered so fast, my head spun around and snapped: "WHY NOT WAIT FOUR YEARS UNTIL THE BUGS ARE WORKED OUT OF THE BASE GAME AND THE FIRST SEVEN DLC PACKS?!?"

Europa Universalis Rome 3?

I hope that they finally got rid of the typical Paradox-style diplomacy system, it's what always ruins those games for me.

Vercingetorix: "Sorry Caesar, I know you conquered all of Gaul, but I'm not willing to let you have any of it. So I'm just going to be sitting here in the comfort of my home, which you dare not interrupt, and refuse all your diplomatic pleas to have any of the territory.
Maybe one day, I I feel generous, I will let you have some tiny tract of land in exchange for you having to wage war all over again".  :idiot2:

Europa Universalis Rome 3?

Was there a EURome2?  ???

The engine looks like a major step in the direction of Rome:Total War (for whatever that's worth -- I regard the visuals as an improvement). And I doubt they've gotten rid of whatever diplomacy system has been behind Vicky2, CK2, and EU4.

I seem to remember a EUR2 game.

I'm in. With over 2K hours in on EU4 & HOI 4, and having done a recent spate of ancient history reading after being inspired by AC Odyssey, this is the no brainer of no brainers. I usually wait for the reviews these days, but I can't fool myself about whether I'm going to buy this or not no matter what the reviews say. The only question is when, and it might as well be early.

p.s. Pretty doggoned sure Paradox never slipped an EU Rome 2 by me. Y'all confused w/TW Rome 2 by any chance?

Pretty sure no version 2 but think I remember some expansion and patch that had to be paid for

I think the original EU Rome was based on a heavily modified version of EU2.

That wouldn't be EURome 2, but an "EU" and a "2" would be heavily connected to the title.

(Relatedly, EURome is on sale at Steam at heavy discount during the Lunar sale and/or to promote the coming title.)

Day one purchase without question.

I still find it weird how long Pdox is taking with its "Man the Guns" DLC. Still no release date. The original announcement was in May 2018, which is also when they announced Imperator.

If people thinking of buying, not a bad deal at fanatical......$45 for deluxe or $33 for standard edition, using the code Lunar8.  I guess its possible better sales may come before release, but guessing not drastically different.
