Latest sequel to the renowned historical trading and economic strategy game set for autumn 2010 release
Kalypso Media announced today that Patrician IV is currently in development by Gaming Minds Studios, a studio created with members of the original Patrician development team. In Patrician IV, the player takes on the role of a young merchant in the area of the Baltic and North Sea during the late Middle Age, the zenith of the Hanseatic League and its naval trading empire. Starting from meagre beginnings as a small stall trader, players must use every skill at their disposal to rise through the merchant ranks and become the most powerful merchant in Europe. The authentic supply and demand-based trading system allows players to grow their business and head out to the high seas to form trading routes with other Hanseatic cities negotiating better prices for the buying and selling of goods. Patrician IV is scheduled for an autumn 2010 release - a teaser trailer is now available.
