Acerca de este juego

La Edición Especial de Steam contiene texturas alternativas para la Tesorería y el Buque Remolcador.

Patrician IV es la secuela de la histórica saga de simulación de comercio y estrategia. Eres un mercader de Europa del Norte a finales de la Edad Media, en pleno esplendor de la Liga Hanseática. Tu objetivo es convertirte en el miembro más próspero e influyente de los Hanse para llegar a ser nombrado Elderman, el líder de la liga comercial. Empezarás comerciando con bienes comunes, construyendo tu propia producción y estableciendo una flota mercante. Posteriormente ganarás más y más influencia política e incluso podrás fundar nuevas ciudades.

Sin embargo, la vida de un mercader Hanse puede tener su lado oscuro. En tu carrera hacia el poder deberás defenderte de fieros rivales, a quienes deberás combatir siendo competitivo, con guerras de precios o por medios más oscuros como el sabotaje. ¿Llegarás a utilizar la piratería?

Características Principales:

  • Conviértete en un poderoso mercader - asciende por el escalafón utilizando tu creciente fama y fortuna para convertir a pequeños poblados en gloriosas capitales bajo tu control.
  • Una completa simulación estratégica - maneja conflictos de interés, rutas comerciales, confusión política, enfermedades, clima, piratería y derechos comerciales.
  • Construye un imperio - construye edificios y contrata trabajadores, estimulando la demanda de los bienes comunes y los exóticos.
  • Lucha en alta mar - protege tus navíos de las incursiones de los piratas en unas batallas navales realistas y emocionantes.
  • Impecable visualmente - un nuevo y potente motor gráfico te permite visitar las bulliciosas y fielmente recreadas ciudades medievales, por ejemplo Londres, Novgorod, Colonia y Bergen.
  • Interfaz y mecánica de juego amigables - los jugadores disfrutarán de una nueva e intuitiva interfaz que hará que el manejo de Patrician IV sea sencillo, aunque llegar a dominarlo será todo un reto.

Overall the game was good. Grapics were up to what they should be and the gameplay was interesting. I dont play these kind of games that often, but after playing Patrician IV. I will for sure be checking them out more.

I really enjoy this game. It can be a little redundant at times but very enjoyable nonetheless.

I was not expecting to like Patrician IV as much as I did. The first historical trading sim I tried was Port Royale 2, and I found it plenty enjoyable to sail the Carribbean and snap up goods to offload for a profit. Patrician III does the same thing across Northern Europe, but it was a little too involved and challenging for my tastes. I assumed IV would be similarly complex, but to my surprise it was far more my speed than any of the others I've played.

Like its predecessors, Patrician IV places you in the finely-tailored boots of an aspiring merchant in the Hanseatic League. Starting with a single ship and counting house, your goal is to make your fortune across the many ports of Northern Europe and Scandinavia. Each city produces four or five goods from a list of about twenty, but consumes all at varying rates. To that end, they require traders like you to ferry goods around to supply towns and help them grow, and make a tidy profit while you're at it.

The basic trading is probably the best of its kind, thanks to some clever quality-of-life improvements. Buying and selling is done on a slider between your convoys or warehouses and the town, allowing you to quickly and easily pick exactly the right amount to give or take. A helpful four-dot display also shows you the effect of your trade on the city's overall supply, which is important because good trades for the city improve your reputation with them. In just an hour or two routes will start to become obvious to you, and you'll be zipping around the sealanes loading and unloading your wares.

Reputation in the many ports grants you access to construction options, allowing you to build your own industries and move on to selling your own goods at market. Your farms and workshops will produce goods for you to trade at much greater margins, thus expanding your operations across many cities. This phase of the game is helped by a very comprehensive trade route editor, which lets you specify which goods to load, unload, or trade at every port on the route, right down to specific quantities and price points. It's an elegant system that will see your profits soaring almost immediately.

There's plenty more to do in the many buildings found at each port. You can make business deals and loans, go on patrols and hunt pirates, or even woo a spouse. These secondary activities aren't as complex as they were in Patrician III but still add welcome variety to your trading adventures. Additionally there are endgame goals like being elected mayor and completing major projects for your cities as before, so there will always be more to do no matter how great your company grows.

Patrician III had all this and more, but it was hidden behind some steep learning curves and unintuitive designs. I'm happy to say IV is a major improvement on this point, mainly by having an extremely useful campaign questline to follow. These missions will ease you into every aspect of the game by giving clear instructions and context, and then leaving you to work out the execution. I've found much more success in this outing thanks to this, along with the clearer messages and polished user interface.

The cost of this accessibility is shallower gameplay than in III, but pulling back from such a deep well is not such a bad thing. Overall, IV feels just right to me, a perfect balance of complexity and fun. The graphics also help with the inviting feel, though fans of the previous crisp pixel cities may be disappointed. I love the soft colors and simple models of the new engine though, and the sound design completes the gentle, inviting ambiance that relaxing sims thrive on. Patrician IV managed to surprise me by shooting to the top of my sim list, and I'm looking forward to many more hours with it.

At the beginning Patrician IV is a simple little trading game--buy low, sell high. As you become wealthier, it instead becomes a game in logistics. Successful players will find themselves creating spreadsheets calculating distribution of goods among their many towns. This uncommon feature at this stage of the game makes the game worthwhile for those who like challenges that make you think.

I bought this and "Rise of a Dynasty" together and played too many hours in the base game before I discovered that the "Special" Steam Edition is a stripped version of "Rise of a Dynasty." If you can, play "Rise" and leave the Steam edition in the dust.

In some games where you play as a ruler of a nation, conquer lands and advance in technology and civilization, one can usually build markets and set trade routes with other cities. It's the same, except that's the whole point of this game. Seriously, you buy things in one city and sell in another. And you grind your way up.
It wouldn't be as bad, if there was a decent tutorial, consistent user interface, meaningful missions or just a bit of sense of humor. Right now is as exciting as doing taxes.

While it is a fine game as standalone, it is a major downgrade in comparison to Patrician III IMO. Graphics are real 3d in version IV, but version III has the better gameplay and a much more informative interface which is a lot easier to handle and get stuff done with. So if it is not all about real 3d graphics to you, you will be better off with Patrician III. I will nevertheles recommend it, because gameplay is ok, it is just by far better in Patrician III.

If you like trading you will love this game. A lot to do and nicely balanced. You will need to keep an eye on your trading empire and get involved in politics and pirate hunting to succeed.

The negative reviews surprise me. I think a lot of the old bugs have been fixed, especially with the DLC. Also, some people complain that it is not as good as Patrician 3. I like them both equally.

If you like economic games and trading games, you will really like this!

No recomiendo la compra de este juego por 2 motivos. El primero, es una mala copia del Patrician 3 que fue un juegazo. El segundo, me parece absurdo que aunque hay una traducción oficial hecha en castellano por fx interactive, la compañía Kalypso no quiere poner en castellano este juego en steam.
Mi recomendación si eres hispanohablante, no se te ocurra comprar este juego en steam, compralo en la web de FXinteractive que te viene con el mapa del juego y la guía.

Antes que nada recomiendo comprarlo NADA MAS si esta en oferta, sino, no lo compres.
Jamas juge la version anterior a esta. Comienzas siendo un simple mercader, te dan un barco y tienes que comerciar (o poner a barco a comerciar) para generar dinero y comprar mas barcos o construir fabricas que generen materiales o recursos para ser vendidos o utilizados para fabricar otros materiaes.
Si entiendes el ingles, te sera muy sensillo, hasta donde lo juge, no tiene palabras complicadas, puedes entenderlo mediante el contexto y sino, tendras que traducir.
- Pros:
Buenos graficos.
Interesante.
Gamplay facil, ya a la primera hora sabes casi todo.
*

- Constrs:
Ya con el tiempo, los barcos hacen todo y tu nada =/
Esta en Ingles y Aleman, me gustaria que estuviese en Español.
Si sabes llevar bien el juego, la Dificultad mas alta sera muy facil.
*


* Puede que siga agregando mas cosas.

En Conclusion, recomiendo comprar este juego si lo encuentras en oferta y entiendas el idioma ingles.
