One Land, One Faith, One Queen: The Europa Universalis IV Strategy Guide Released

Written by Jason Pitruzzello, this in-depth guide follows the story of young Isabella and the entire Trastámara dynasty as they struggle to make Spain the grandest of all countries.
Europa Universalis IV is the newest installment of the Europa Universalis franchise by Paradox Development Studio. It is the grandest of all grand strategy games: manage your empire, control trade, engage in religious conflict, and when all else fails, plunge Europe into warfare with the goal of attaining hegemony. But with so many things to control, and so many nations to subjugate under your enlightened rule, sometimes even the ghost of Louis XIV is not enough to help you get started. Enter the official strategy guide for Europa Universalis IV! Follow the story of young Isabella and the entire Trastámara dynasty as they struggle to make Spain the grandest of all countries. Will they succeed in finally defeating their hated rivals, the French? Or will history march on, leaving Isabella and her dynasty as little more than footnotes in the annals of other, greater countries?
 
This guide will help new and experienced players in various areas, including:
 
  • Empire management, including the monarch power system.
  • Trade and colonization; you, too, can create a colonial empire to rival your historical counterparts!
  • Warfare, both actual combat and planning for wars in advance.
  • Diplomacy, including when to be diplomatic, and when to take what you want by force.

  • A special Not-So-Frequently-Asked-Questions section to provide specifics on game mechanics.
  • A special section just for returning players to the franchise; you aren’t playing Europa Universalis III anymore!
