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.

Info: Haven't played any previous game before.

I feel this game is pretty shallow, unless I missed something.

After awhile I got bored, there is no incentive to stay playing. Except building more production and trade more to gain more income, and the cycle repeats with no clear goal. The campaign is basically tutorial, a really bad one at that, no good explanation on the game mechanic. It is one of those game that you just build for the sake of building more stuff at the end.

Only 3 ships that are unlocked from the start of the game. I didn't see any options to unlock more ship types, if I miss it, a correction would be nice.

A bit buggy, I had the characters speaking sound completely disappear, along with portrait not going away like it should, randomly and it stays until restart. Some visual bug too.

I really like trading/managing game, but this one is just too boring. Along the 10hr I played it was 2 play through. 1 was campaign in which I get to the highest ranking and felt there is nothing to do anymore.

For a build-up game that's in its 3.5th installment, I would have expected more.

The game concept is nice, but whoever was in charge of designing the game control mechanisms should be fired! Automatic trade is tedious to manage:
- an '(un)load everything BUT' option is still missing (as with earlier versions);
- trying to select a destination city with the mouse repeatedly results in the program switching it with another one, or simply nothing being selected at all;
- cities can only be added or deleted completely, not just the destination changed;
- and to top it all off, the game keeps arbitrarily changing certain settings of trade routes back to its own defaults, WHILE THE TRADE ROUTE IS BEING USED!
Specifically, this means that loading your ship from your storehouse in a city will occasionally get changed to buying from the city instead. Quite a big deal when you wonder why your funds aren't getting ahead for hours.

The counting house manager seems to sometimes just forget to do his job, as was the problem before with Patrician II.
Also, when quantities get really large, the default trading amount is increased - which is good for manual handling, but it sometimes seems to prevent the manager further from executing any orders, e.g. when lump trades change the average trading price and he consequently doesn't act at all. Although I'm not quite sure if these two might not just be same problem after all.

The overall game flow suffers from bad priorities for messages. Various events are lumped together as 'task accomplished', without specifying what it is exactly: a returned loan you gave, or a mission you took on.
To know for sure, you have to check the history list - where you then have to delete and confirm every single item of e.g. returned loans to keep the list clean.
Other times, your advisor/uncle - or worse, a competitor from one of the many cities - just pops up and delivers a spoken message while you were just trying to micro-manage some part of the game. You can usually just ignore the competitors, but as far as I can tell, the advisor-uncle only says everything once.

I probably forgot about 4-5 things that annoyed me like hell too.
As I was saying: The person(s) responsible for this mess should be fired.

Anyway, if all that doesn't bother you, the game is somewhat more charming than its predecessors.
Further on the plus side, the uncle's tutorial tips don't try to micro-manage your game. He only shows up at major milestones and you are free to act in between as you wish.

I will probably spend a bit more time with this game when I'm bored. But I'm not going to get addicted or look forward to playing on, like I could have.

A truly mediocre product with a great idea and name. :-(

Patrician IV is a trading strategy game based (loosely) on the historical period of the Hanseatic League. It has been a board game and Patrician I was released about a decade ago. If you are a fan of strategy games, then you have probaby already heard of (and have) the original version. If you haven't heard of it, think of the strategic map view of Medieval Total War, but with the activity done by ships, not the armies.

Essentially this is the same as the orginal. The graphics and sound are slightly better, but this doesn't impact gameplay. One improvement is a 'rating bar' against items in each market to show demand - this makes it much easier to make money without a running a spreadsheet alongside the game. The automatic buy/sell through your warehouses has been changed from the original, but splitting the buying from the selling on different tabs has made it fiddlier to manage your administrators. A better tutorial is included for new players.

I played the original version of Patrician for hundreds of hours and the lack of major changes means that I'm expecting to get hooked again. So, for experienced players, this is worth the upgrade fee during Steam sales whilst new players should enjoy this even at full price.

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 has managed to keep the Patrician essence. Altough i would have liked more effort to be put into the world map and the characters that appear in the game. Other than that, it's good.

Great if you like trading games.

not really for people looking to play a combat heavy game, and not quite as good as patrician 3.

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.

Análisis de preestreno
La embarre al comprar este juego, es muy bueno, pero PESIMAMENTe optimizado, la grafica es muy normal, y batallas navales con 3 barcos se ve LENTISIMO, imaginen que en el Napoleon total War se pueden ver incluso a los marinos luchas y el daño del casco con batallas de 20 barcos por lado, pero aca Nada y se me ve lento, mal mal .

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?



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.

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.

I bought the game just now, and I can't play it because it requires me to make a 'Kalypso Media Launcher Account' for no given reason. So I did that, and now it tell me my account does not exist. I sent an email to Kalypso's support, but I've read it can take like 16 days to receive a reply, so...
