Port Royale 4 is the fourth installment of the economic strategy series. The project was developed by Gaming Minds Studios, a team that developed such titles as Port Royale 3: Pirates & Merchants, Patrician IV, Rise of Venice and Railway Empire.

Mechanics

The action of the game is set in the 17th century in the Caribbean. We play as governor of a small settlement whose goal is to create an empire that includes many islands. Port Royale 4 focuses on the economic aspect. We can build fifty types of buildings, half of which are structures used for the production of various types of goods. The player must develop the economy and learn how to balance expenditure and investment.

The key role in the game is played by trade, in which we can conduct business with 60 cities. We transport goods by sea, so it is very important to create routes that avoid dangerous areas such as cliffs and shallows. The weather also influences the voyages of ships. All this is done in real-time.

In addition to economic development, we also command sailing ships during tactical sea battles, which for the first time in the history of the series are played in turn-based mode. In the game, you will find 18 types of ships, modeled on authentic ships from the 17th century.

Game modes

Port Royale 4 offers four story campaigns in which we work with England, Spain, the Netherlands, and France. Each of these nations has different characteristics and conditions, which influence the game.

The devs did not prepare a multiplayer mode.

Technical aspects

The game offers nice three-dimensional visuals. Port Royale 4 is built on the Gaming Minds studio's proprietary engine, an enhanced version of Railway Empire technology.
