O tej grze

The Steam Special Edition contains alternate textures for the Counting House and Cog ship type.

Patrician IV is the sequel to the historical trading simulation and strategy series. You are a merchant in northern Europe in the late Middle Ages when the Hanseatic League was flourishing. Your goal is to rise to the most successful and influential member of the Hanse, ultimately being elected Elderman, leader of the trading league. You start bargaining with common goods, build up your own production and establish a merchant fleet. Later on, you will gain more and more political influence and even found new towns.

However, a Hanse merchant's life can also have its dark sides. On your way to power you have to hold your ground against fierce rivals, whom you have to fight with economic competition, price wars or impure means such as sabotage. Will you even engage in piracy?

Key features:

  • Become a powerful merchant - rise through the ranks using your increasing fame and wealth to shape towns from small villages to glorious capitals under your control
  • A complete strategic simulation - balance competing interests, trade routes, political turmoil, disease, weather, piracy and greedy royalty
  • Build an empire - construct buildings and hire workers, stimulating demand for common and exotic goods
  • Battle on the high seas - protect your ships from pirate raiders in realistic and exciting sea battles
  • Visually stunning - a powerful new graphics engine lets you visit bustling and realistically recreated medieval cities such as London, Novgorod, Cologne and Bergen
  • Friendly Interface and Gameplay - Players will enjoy a brand-new, user friendly interface that makes Patrician IV easy to play but challenging to master

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.

Patrician 4 doesn't do any favors over Patrician 3. Different engine (once again, 3D doesn't do wonders for such a strategy game), and apparently some features removed. Get Patrician 3 instead.

If you were expecting a worthwhile sequel to Patrician 3, don't bother. The 'campaign' lasts a couple of hours at best and simply ends up throwing you into a free-mode limbo.

If you smashed together the best parts of this game and Port Royale 3, you might have something halfway decent. Both on their own just feel like half-made games and aren't worth your time and money.

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!

Needs a Kalypso account just ot register and play in Steam - and no warning on the Store page.

Bad move Kalypso - you lost an old fan with this extra DRM. More than that you lost someone who has recommended Patrician to thousands over the years. I can understand you protecting teh Disc based version but this is silly.

Very disappointed :(

There aren't many games out there, where the point of the game is to traid and to do some capitalistic ♥♥♥♥. One of them is definitely Patrician IV. I've been playing the game for some time now and I think it is time to say something about it.

These games can be boring sometimes, and this or similar kinds of gameplay, are usually part of some bigger game. But the thrill is not in the gameplay, it is in the role that you are playing. In this particular game you take the role of a merchant in medieval times on the Baltic sea. Your goal is to be the biggest merchant of them all. And as far as the story goes that's about it. So, as you can see, there isn't much of a story. But there is a lot of trading to do and you have to industrialize your production of goods and trading roots.

For the gameplay I can say it is simple as far as handling it goes. You don't have any trouble trying to figure out how to do things around there. The mechanics of demand and supply are realistic and you can quickly overproduce or oversupply a market of a city that you came to trade in. So in that way you have to be careful that you always keep them a bit short on supplies.

There is one thing that is in this game and has to be mentioned separately, and that is the naval battles. You can have naval battles with pirates or you competitors, but these battles are not big ones which is little bit disappointing. You can only have fights 3 on 3. Never the less, it is a welcome change in the monotone playing experience.

I am enjoying playing this game, but I think that those who like more action will be bored. That's why I am giving the game 6/10, and I gave it a rating that high just because, I like to play it once in a while when I feel that this capitalistic world is not the best decision that humanity has made.

i wish i can say anything i love this game, however, i cannot

this is worse than Patrician III
it is way easier, all i need is one ship, turn on automatic trade, sit there and see profit rools in
serioulsy, this supposed to be a trading simlator.

and the buildings, where can i buy weapons? where can I trian troops?
they are removed in this game

i love the sea battle thow, but i cannot escape?

this game is broken in spirit, but if you love making profit and are not a thinker, this super easy relaxing game is for you

I've spent most of my time on the 'Rise of a Dynasty' DLC, 17.9 Hours to be exact, since the DLC loads separately even though it uses or check the base games files. I know very well what the DLC does and does not include, and I will not be factoring features of the DLC in this review.

Patrician is a great nautical trading game. You buy low, travel to another city, and sell high. As you gain more money, you buy more ships so you can carry more goods. Then you can start a second Convoy(a team of ships basically), and assign it a route. A route tells the ships which cities to go to and what order to do it. You can tell them what they should buy and what they should sell in that particular city. And they'll do all that without any more input from you, and they'll be earning you money in no time.

You can even start producing goods yourself, and have dedicated ships to deliver it to another city either to sell high, or give it to another goods producer you own so they can make more complicated, and therefore more valuable goods to sell. You gain favor in a city by selling them goods that they are low on, which makes them like you more. Once they're happy enough with you, you can start buying buildings in their city, and producing goods unique to them.

You can also take up Contracts/Missions/Whatever at the Pub. This ranges from delivering a certain amount of a specific good, or even hunting down a specific pirate or rival.

One thing it's starts losing quality on is sea based combat. Most of the time, you'll just want to let the fighting resolve automatically rather than take control yourself, since it's rather boring. Once you start getting more well known in the game, your ships will be attacked by pirates more often, and sometimes not even towards you specifically. Sometimes they'll park their boats outside a cities port, attacking anyone who comes or goes. Most of the time, if you lose, they'll just take a large amount of your goods, and sometimes a ship, and let your convoy go. To counter this, you can assign specialized boats with armor and weapons to fight, protect, and even scare off pirates on occasion. You can even put cannons on your merchant boats, however, this subtracts from overall storage space, but it's worth it if a specific convoy gets attacked a lot. Sometimes though, they're just a pain in the ♥♥♥, and you'll have to send your own specialized combat convoy to take them out permanently, since no one else will do it.

There's a lot of trading to do in this game, and the DLC will add quite a bit more. I'll need to write up a review for 'Rise of a Dynasty' too, but later.

I highly recommend this game to anyone who enjoys trading games,

Both the Patrician IV steam edition and Patrician IV rise of an empire require an email activation to play, that the game company fails to send, stay away from purchasing this game on steam untill this issue has been fixed.

DON'T BUY THIS THING! Just DON'T !

You logged into steam ? GFWL ? uplay from ubisoft ? origin from EAgames ??
IT'S NOT OVER , you have to log into "kalypso" now !
You need an email adress and a password to log into a "KalYpso thing" in order to play maybe one day.
Why do you want to play this game anyway ??? IT IS SO FUNNY TO SPEND YOUR TIME CREATING NEW ACCOUNTS EVERY♥♥♥♥INGWHERE AND GETTING TRACKED AND SPAMMED FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE ! ALL YOU NEED IS TO GIVE KALYPSO 29.99 EURO.

There are so many better games that are just "click-and-play", don't bother for a game worse than Patrician III, unless they have patched the login page to an offline launch.

Don't waste your money with KalypsoGames whatsoever. eVEN THE TROPICO SERIES FROM POP TOP AND BREAKAWAY WAS WAY BETTER THAN THEIR RELOAD

I love strategy, I love all kinds of strategy, all aspects of it, and all forms of a good balansed strategy game. That is my reason for recommend this game.

The concept of the game is simple, you're a trader in the Hansiatic leauge, and you have too expand your trade empire. How? By selling and buying a number of diffrant goods, all from Hemp, bricks, pelts, salt, wine and much more. The whole game is built around supply and demand, you buy goods were its cheap, often were the goods in question is produced, for example logs and mead from Stockholm or wine and wool from Colonge. These goods you will then need to deliver all across the Baltic sea and the northen Atlantic. After a few hours you might have enough money and respect in one of the cities to start producing your own goods, maybe you will start a grain farm in Lübeck and have it delivered to Riga and Malmö. The trading is very very simple to learn but hard to master, you will trade by sending trading ships into diffrant towns ( or if you have a counting house in the city you can sell goods from your local storage) and then sell any goods that you have on the boat. You can avoid all the micro management later in the game by setting up basic trading route running along maybe three towns. You can with this system have a boat sail from Stockholm with a bit of logs and hemp, and then have it sold in London were you then pick up wool and iron, you can then inturn sell these goods in Oslo were you pick up Salt and bricks that you take back to Stockholm and restart the route.

The Combat in the game is quite small, you can turn into a pirate and harrass your compeditors, but also you will need to defend your own ships from organised pirates that sail all over the Baltic sea, the battles will have you control a max of three ships as you order them what kind of ammunition you want them to fire and what ship you want them to target. But this really does not effect the main gameplay that is trading, Later in the game you will also be able to become mayor in a town, this enabling you to construct certain buildings and increasing the size of the town.

I find this game to be extreamly addictive, this is not for the large cool battles or the huge cool citites you can construct, but because I can have an impact on the flow of trade around the whole region, I can utterly destroy the price on hemp or spice, and ruin my enemies chances on a market on that specific ware. This can enable me to buy up the market and then I can sell it to a very high price instead, the effects of your trade matters and you can have an complete blast seeing how your trade empire grows month after month. 10/10 for one of the best trading simulators out there, it will challange you to be effective in your trade, and plan out a strategy for how you will become the most popular and richest trader in the Baltic Sea.

i've been trying to play this game but cant cause the email side of it to register to the 3rd party for this game is broken and looks like they arent fixing it. its been 24 hours now and no email in my inbox or junk box to register so i can play the game. please dont go wasting your time or money on this. steam dont seem to help with fixing this issue either as its the 3rd party's issue not a steam issue in their eyes. yet steam is the ones selling both Patrician4- steam special edition and Patrician 4. very dissapointing on both steam and the 3rd party's side about this issue.

By far my favorite trading/economy sim. Very well made, I always come back to this game. Voice acting sucks balls (trading sim, not game breaking by any means)
