About the Game

Patrician IV - Rise of a Dynasty brings a comprehensive package of improvements and new features to the best-selling Patrician IV including online multiplayer and new scenarios.

Finally, you are able to operate your business in cooperative multiplayer mode with up to three friends helping out. And if you are already master of the seas, you can now try and conquer the continent as well!

In Rise of a Dynasty, you will find new routes into the heartland and trade with cities like Berlin, Warsaw and Nijmegen. But of course you have to grapple with the territorial rulers first and protect your wagon convoys from errant highwaymen.

Key Features:

  • Cooperative multiplayer mode - Manage your company alongside three of your friends via LAN or Internet
  • Treasure hunt - Collect parts of a treasure map in the whole Hanseatic territory to find the ultimate pirate treasure
  • New scenarios - Six new scenarios, demanding even for experienced players

Pro: Great game play, easy and relaxed, and does not take long to learn how it all works

Con: Can get very slow at times, and even though it is primarily single player, it requires and inet connection at all times. I'm SO done buying games from companies that don't understand the concept of offline play.

Pick up Port Royale 3 instead. It's the same game but with more content and replayability.

I'm going to add that this is still a good game. I just don't recommend it. I had a lot more fun with their other games.

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 GAMES WAS WAY BETTER THAN THEIR RELOAD

What kind of a ♥♥♥♥ing ♥♥♥♥♥ puts a login requirement onto an offline game?
