Patrician IV: Conquest by Trade Screenshots



Ridgewood, NJ, September 6, 2010 - Kalypso Media, a global, independent developer, marketer and publisher of interactive entertainment software, today announced that their economic and trading simulation, Patrician IV: Conquest by Trade, has gone gold and will ship to North American retail outlets on September 14 for Windows PC. In Patrician IV, players are challenged to use their wits, guile and a keen sense of arbitrage to rise to the status of a powerful and beloved figure in the eyes of the citizenry and the Hanseatic trading league.

Originally released in 1992 for the Amiga and Atari ST, the Patrician brand has sold over 2 million units worldwide, and has earned the respect of strategy gamers the world over. Patrician IV builds upon the already solid reputation of its predecessors with a whole new art style combined with a redesigned and newcomer-friendly trading simulation engine.

In Patrician IV, the player takes on the role of a young merchant in the area of the Baltic and North Sea during the late Middle Ages, the zenith of the Hanseatic League and its naval trading empire. Starting from meager beginnings as a small stall trader, players must use every skill at their disposal to rise through the merchant ranks and become the most powerful merchant in Europe. The authentic supply and demand-based trading system allows players to grow their business and head out to the high seas to form trading routes with other Hanseatic cities negotiating better prices for the buying and selling of goods.

Patrician IV was developed by Gaming Minds Studios GmbH, a studio created with members of the original Patrician development team, and will ship to North American retailers on September 14. For more information about Patrician IV: Conquest by Trade please visit www.patrician4.com.
