À propos de ce jeu

L'édition spéciale Steam contient des textures alternatives pour la Counting House et le type les navires "Cog" .

Patrician IV est la suite de la simulation du jeu de gestion et de stratégie historique. Vous êtes un marchand dans l'Europe du Nord vers la fin du moyen-âge à l'époque de la ligue Hanséatique. Votre but est de devenir son membre le plus influent et d'en devenir le dirigeant. Commencez en bas de l'échelle et construisez petit à petit votre empire.

Cependant, un marchand de la Hanse à ses problèmes : sur la route du pouvoir vous rencontrez forcément des ennemis, des rivaux et des opportunités qui vous feront peut-être adopter des pratiques peu orthodoxes. Avez-vous pensé avoir recours à la piraterie ?

Comprend :

  • Devenez un marchand puissant - progresser dans les rangs et participer à la création d'une capitale économique
  • Simulation stratégique aboutie - intérêts, routes commerciales, troubles politiques, maladie, disette, météorologie, piraterie et pouvoir royal oppresseur
  • Construisez un empire - construisez des bâtiments et embaucher des travailleurs. Stimulez la demande pour les biens communs et les biens exotiques
  • Batailles en haute mer - protégez vos navires des pirates et engagez les hostilités avec ceux qui se mettent sur votre chemin
  • Graphismes somptueux - de nouveaux graphismes générés par un nouveau moteur vous feront parcourir les rues de la Londres médiévale, de Novgorod, Cologne et Bergen
  • Interface et jouabilité facile d'accès - une toute nouvelle interface fera de Patrician IV un jeu facile à aborder

Great game. Love the trading and the building and everything happening on the map.

So what sinks the game? Sea combat. I rather play Empire TW or Port Royale sea fights rather than this. It is bad in the beginning and becomes even worse as game proceeds. For me it finaly breaks the game.

Early game you can just resolve fights automaticaly or do the ye old pirates style '1 fast ship to nibble them all to death' strategy. Later on it becomes extemely tedious due to bad UI and weird constraints on movement and firing.

There are so many things one rather do than try to do manual sea combat in this game. And autoresolve will not help you in mid to late game when pirates get strong and tight constraints are in place when it comes to how many ships you can bring to a fight.

It's been a while since I've written a recommendation for a game, and it's a service I feel the community really needs doing, so here we go:

Patrician IV, henceforth known as "Patty IV's" is in something of a niche genre, in that it is a Renaissance trading simulator set around the Hanseatic League in Northern Europe. Doesn't sound like the most riveting game now, but when I rephrase that as TIME TRAVELLING DOSH SIMULATOR 1420 EDITION it starts to sound ♥♥♥♥♥ing dank. (Note to self, make montage video with that title)

Patty IV's behaves something akin to a sandbox, and the main campaign introduces you to the core concepts in a really intelligent way rather than simply throwing a standard tutorial at you, whereupon you start with modest resources as a simple hemp smuggler operating out of Lubeck aspiring to grow his empire until you control all the booze and kush in Denmark.

The difficulties in the true sandbox mode work pretty well too, they basically make more bad things happen the higher difficulty you select, like pirates stealing your ♥♥♥♥ or bad winters freezing ports over as well as ramping up the costs of production, so that in order to maintain a decent profit margin you actually have to spread your goods out intelligently. Because of this, on the higher difficulties you truly end up as a wicked beer baron, having to ship your product all over Europe to find enough people keen for your booze and bud (Stockholm can't get enough hemp for some reason).

Once you've gotten enough dosh behind you from your 'legitimate businesses' you can move into the world of protection, racketeering and exploitation. You can create fleets of pirate vessels or hunt the pirates that menace your trade. You can be 'elected' in charge of a town and pay off the local authorities to leave you in peace. You can build 'schools' where the goal is to design bigger guns for you ships or ways to grow danker kush. You can even pick up some wench and start 'The Family' (watch that ♥♥♥♥♥, I caught mine cheating once).

Have I mentioned that it doesn't stop there?

WELL BUCKLE UP KIDS

IT EVEN HAS A GODDAM CO-OP MODE FOR TWICE AS MUCH DOSH.

Because by know you're already clicking add to cart I'll discuss the DLC now, so you can wrap it up in one easy purchase.

The expansions adds some pretty legit content, so if the gold edition is an option go for it, but the game isn't fundamentally handicapped by missing it out. I even managed to drop about 50 hours into the full edition before finding the key feature of smuggling booze and 'exotic spices' overland that the DLC introduces. It seems like there were a lot of little tweaks that were added with Rise of a Dynasty too, including some fixes with the aforementioned co-op mode, however, so I would recommend picking up the pack if possible.

This is a ♥♥♥♥ing wicked game, potentially the best game to play while you're browsing the net or whatever at the same time, which is ironic due to it not being terribly casual. The reason it has a ♥♥♥♥♥♥ metascore is because all the reviewers are cowards that don't want to put any effort into learning how the systems work, which are relatively easy to understand and smooth to operate. ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥s are too busy giving 9.8's to on rails shooters to learn how to run a criminal syndicate, uh, I mean 'trading syndicate'. I wouldn't say the game is immaculate, but it's challenging and interesting in a fun way, and I don't regret sinking plenty of hours into it. The ship combat is a little dry too, but that's not the focus of the game.

If you like simulators or relaxed strategy of any kind I'd say it's a must buy.

Overall I'd give TIME TRAVELLING DOSH SIMULTOR 1420 EDITION 80/100.

Having spent numberless hours playing Patrician III, this game was a must buy for me.
Couldnt have been more wrong. This would have made an acceptable Patrician II since is clearly a step backwards.
Patrician IV its clearly worse than its predecessor.

If you are thinking about buying this, my advise, pick up Patrician III.

If you like trading, making money, and killing pirates, well you've come to the right place. If you want action, adventure, constant battles then simply this is not your game.
Graphics are reasonable, interface is enjoyable. There is a slight learning curve and how to best set up your routes/convoys will be what you spend most of your time doing. OCD folks will love it, but if you are very "hands off" management style it might not be your thing.
I love it though.

I thought it was an improvement of the Patrician 3, but I wasn't expecting this... The same mechanics, same map, same gameplay... Disapointing... I still prefer Patrician 3 instead of this. I'm lucky I bought it now with the Steam summer sales!
