has issued a new patch for Rulers of Nations
, a geo-political PC simulation set to empower players and allow them to emulate world leaders (thanks: The Patches Scrolls
). The realistic geo-political game engine of Rulers of Nations includes new cause-and-effect challenges such as: managing refugees after a regional catastrophe, colonising countries, and buying black market weapons. The player is also required to deal with the growing issue of researching and securing sustainable energy sources, whether renewable types, such as wind and solar, or cheaper but more controversial processes such as deep-sea oil drilling. In Rulers of Nations players can take part in solo campaigns, or lock horns with up to 16 other online leaders where you choose whether other human or AI leaders are your state’s friends or foe. Rulers of Nations is played on a detailed 3D world map that shows 192 countries, and 8,000 cities, in a visually stimulating user interface, complete with multiple windows and on-screen video inserts. Each country has current data on 400 key factors (economics, energy, monetary, military etc.) based on current data from 50 international organisations including the United Nations, G20, NATO, NAFTA and OPEC.
