Spain’s Age of Glory is the inspiration for the latest immersion pack, Golden Century, for the Europe Universalis IV, the empire building and trade strategy game developed by Paradox Plaza soon to be released on December 11th for the PC.
Whether it’s the defeat of the Spanish Armada or the completion of the Reconquita, the Iberian Peninsula was the effective centre of Europe. Vast shipped transporting huge hordes of gold from the Caribbean were preyed upon by privateers, while the Catholic church combined with great Spanish monarchs ruled the people and religious freedoms. Golden Century takes the player back to that age of exploration and adventure.
