Europa Universalis 4 will be available for free on the Epic Store

Have you ever thought, “I really want to try one of the big Paradox grand strategy games, but I don’t want to invest any money in it because the whole thing is likely to end quickly and badly?” Of course I do. One day many years ago, I desperately bought Europa Universalis: Rome, determined to scratch from this itch. Thirty minutes later, when I desperately flipped through the phone book-sized manual, I realized that I had always been right.I was the way Beyond my depth.

The good news for anyone in a similar situation is that you will soon have the opportunity to embark on a journey of grand strategy self-discovery without spending a penny: the acclaimed Europa Universalis 4, “A textured and fascinating simulation game that conquered the common ground between ordinary Civilization V players and long-term supporters of grand strategy”, will be available for free on the Epic Games Store next week.
