Patrician IV: Rise Of A Dynasty Released

Our sterling coverage of Patrician IV: Risk of a Dynasty continues! Yes, as of today the first expansion pack for Patrician IV has arrived on Steam (or you can get it here on Gamersgate), bringing a load of revisions, six new scenarios and a few new features to the historical trading simulator. With Rise of a Dynasty you'll be able to trade via roads as well as seas, and buy up parts of entire regions. You greedy bastards! Did you ask for that as a new feature? Yes, you, at the keyboard? No? Fine.

I've embedded a Patrician IV tutorial video after the jump, so you can take a look at the game and see if it's for you.

Uh-oh. I was doing OK until he pointed out that both the supply and price of salt in the town were good, which caused a capitalistic impulse to go ricocheting around my body, shouting "BUY! BUY!"

I may have to give this game a closer look.
