game release date for PC:
Realpolitik II is the second installment of a series of strategy games launched in 2017. The production was developed by the authors of the first part of the series, i.e. the Polish Jujubee studio, and (like the original) allows us to lead the selected contemporary state to global domination.
Realpolitik II starts with the selection of one of 216 countries, including such exotic countries as Kiribati and Sealand. We still have nothing left to do but try to make it a world empire. It is only up to us whether we will respect the principles of democracy and the laws governing the free market, or whether we will put our trust in communist ideals. During the game we spend most of our time on the world map, and we deal with issues related to the development of infrastructure and maintaining more or less positive relations with other nations. Besides, from time to time we face the consequences of more than a thousand random events, and we also face modern problems like hunger, pandemic or terrorism.
Compared to the first part of the series, the game boasts completely rebuilt systems of economic management and warfare, as well as extensive diplomacy. Among other things, the buildings speed up the recruitment of units, provide defense against hostile attacks or even extend the supply lines of our troops. An important role on the way to supremacy is also played by work on new projects and technologies (out of over a thousand available) and trade. New diplomatic actions such as non-aggression pacts, military agreements, trade agreements and complex peace negotiations help to maintain good relations with selected countries. Additionally, we can send spies to our friends and enemies. With time, these units gain experience and improve their abilities. In a state of war we make use of a completely new combat system. The battles take place on separate maps covered by a grid of square fields, and during the clashes not only the formation, equipment and strengths and weaknesses of our units must be taken into account, but also the topography of the terrain or weather conditions. Battles are fought both on land and at sea and in the air.
Realpolitik II only allows you to play alone, in three extensive campaigns. Special tools have been built into the game to create modifications (such as campaigns, scenarios, units or countries) and share them with the community.
Although the graphic design of Realpolitiks II does not differ significantly from what other grand strategy games are used to, the whole thing has been clearly improved in relation to the visual sphere of the first part of the cycle. The user interface has also been improved and has become more transparent.
