    So a new EU game set for release 2013! Yes and YES!

    Some new stuff includes:

    - A tutorial that works.

    - More complex monarchs, closer to Crusader Kings apparently.

    - Events more tied to a nations actual history.

    - A map that reflects weather/seasons.

    And something else probably.

    I thoroughly enjoyed playing medieval total war. I will probably thoroughly enjoy playing this. however 2013 is a long way away.

    Erm, Total War is quite QUITE different from this. Give EU3 and/or Crusader Kings 2 a go to see what it's about.

    Total War is less serious and, I guess, less historically accurate (even though the Dominion of the Sword mod promises to let Medieval II become less "TW-like").

    Paradox games aren't turn based, it's "real time", for example 1 minute = 1 month.

    There is a demo avaliable for EU3 here. I have not played it but it should give you a taste of what it's about.
