Despre acest joc

Discover the industry standard for geopolitical simulation of today’s world!
In Masters of the World, the third incarnation of Geopolitical Simulator, play as the head of state of one or more countries and expand your influence across the globe.

A totally unique simulation engine

The game engine, Geopolitical Simulator 3, includes over 600 data elements for each of the 175 playable countries and calculates their changes in real time throughout the game based on players’ actions. Some examples include popularity ratings, political relations, and economic exchanges between countries. Various organizations, including NATO, use the technologies in the Masters of the World simulator for education and training.

Over one thousand playable actions.At the country’s helm, the player/head of state can act in many areas: budget, taxation (nearly thirty types of taxes), currency, economy (over 130 economic activities), foreign and domestic affairs, defense, society, labor, health, social security, education, environment, transportation, culture, and more.

For each of these areas, numerous laws can be proposed and must be voted on by the Parliament in order to pass. For example: setting social welfare benefit minimums, changing the retirement age, developing atomic weapons in secret, subsidizing the auto industry, hiring teachers, defining the powers of unions, setting speed limits on roads, regulating prostitution, creating an international film festival, etc.

The player can also construct elements on the world map, which will change accordingly: nuclear plants, wind farms, military bases, pipelines, high-speed train lines, airports, and many more.

Every action has its consequences. Lobbies, social groups, and leading national and international figures will intervene if their artificial intelligence finds it necessary to do so (interviews with the press, resignations, protests, strikes, roadblocks, wars...).

To prevent tension, the player can meet with any figure, or address the media (over 8 hours of dialog in the game).

Thanks to its intelligence services, the player also has an entire arsenal of spies and “special” ops. For example, he or she can - at his or her own risk - reveal scandals about another political party, dismantle terrorist networks, sabotage a foreign infrastructure, have an opponent assassinated, etc.

As the head of the military, the player can move all of his or her units around the map from their actual bases during military conflicts.

International organizations (over 50 organizations included) play an important role. At the UN, for example, the player can denounce a nation in order to obtain the Security Council’s authorization for a military intervention. The player can also create his or her own organization.Lastly, in order to stay in power, he or she must actively campaign to make sure he or she is elected.

Playable scenarios

Twenty or so scenarios are included in the game, such as “American Fiscal Cliff,” “Israel-Iran Escalation,” “Organization of Rice Exporting Countries,” “European Budgetary Golden Rule,” “Building South American Pipelines,” “African Economic Boom,” “Third World War,” “Triple A,” and “Famine in Southern Sudan.”.

Multiple integrated options

  • Network multiplayer mode
  • Multi country mode to play several countries at the same time
  • Game settings: terrorist activities, natural disaster probabilities, reactivity of the people, war triggering
  • Real-time online player ranking
  • Integration of your own photos, logos, and names to make the game even more realistic
  • Interactive tutorial and constantly accessible help during the game
  • Have fun learning geopolitics with the QUIZ mode, which has over 3000 questions
  • Text and dialog 100% in English


Note about the DRM: it uses an automatic and seamless activation at the first launch, then it can be played off-line if needed. It allows unlimited activations on three computers at the same time, plus if needed to migrate for free to other computers. So you'll never have to pay twice for the same licence of the game. The system allows future and backward compatibility with game add-ons plus upcoming upgrades to sequels of the game and access to our newsletters subscription. This also offers possibility to players having bought previously on other sites to migrate on steam and keep their add-ons.

This game has several game breaking bugs that can just stop you from playing a game, forcing you to start again. For example I was kicked out of my country for having a defecit, when i was still shown as having surplus, my income was more than my expense, yet I was kicked out. Several other people have similar problems. The devs seem not to care about their fanbase at all.

Price is too high for the quality of the game, and the price was not dropped in time like most other games.

If you have 50 dollars to throw around, I would buy this game, as it is still the best domestic and internatiol political simulator out there, but dont expect to get too much out of it.

The concept is good. The gameplay can be enjoyable and interesting, and sometimes hilarious. However the reason I cannot recommend this game is simply because it is flooded with bugs and ambiguity. "Everyone is protesting your lax policy" - thats nice and all but wtf is a lax policy?

"-1% popularity: Scientific Discovery" - why am I losing popularity for discoverying something and publishing it after it made everyone happy? And why is it happening repeatedly for 1 week?

"£25Bn on Foreign Policy" - thats nice...how do I cut it? Where do I cut it? Can I even adjust it? The Foreign aid I give comes no where close so where is the rest cuz its going over budget by more than 15%


As for bugs, the game is riddled with them. Always has been. For instance, my AI general sends a tank to take a city, but my ally takes the city first. But my general REALLY wants that city so continues the attack. Boom. Instant war with my ally. UN hates me. EU hates me. My people hate me. I get diposed and start WW3. Thats just one really annoying bug which I have to reload to fix.

If Eversim had continued working on GPS3 and fixed bugs and actually responded to feedback, hell if there was a SINGLE update, I'd be able to recommend this game. But I don't recall any updates/bug fixes. Instead they released an "add-on" which allows you to mod the game. And an expansion which allows you to start in 2014. Then moved onto their next game, ignoring the player's woes, bugs and issues.

If you can accept the bugs, and get used to the ambiguity in the game, then I'd recommend it for aspiring politicians or people who just like to start world wars, or like long-lasting, complex micro-managing games (like me). Otherwise I cannot.

There's a double DRM, that limit your activation to only two graphic card, CPU, HDD, SSD, Windows change...
So basicly, you change a part or start the game with an HDD not connected but it was before, you lose an activation.

Say goodbye to your game if the company go bankrupt.

Double DRM on Steam help no way the devs other than killing the sale.

Avoid the game, say NO to double DRMs.
