EU3: Divine Wind "first game" to feature Paradox achievements
Posted: 13.12.2010 14:04 by Simon Priest Comments: 6
The latest expansion to Paradox's Europa Universalis III is Divine Wind and it's their first title to include "Paradox Connect achievements" for gameplay.

These will "truly enrich" the experience say Paradox, giving fans extra goals and feats, and "strengthen the community". Achievements are just cosmetic.

Don't go expecting to unlock mega bonuses as achievements are purely for self-gratification and brag rights, reveal Paradox. All future titles from PI will feature Paradox Connect.

“I am extremely excited about this new functionality, which will truly enrich the gaming experience for our fans,” said Johan Andersson, Executive VP of Development. “It will strengthen the community at our forums, giving them more things to talk about.”

Four of the achievements in Divine Wind have been detailed:
- 'Napoleon was not this good!' - Disband HRE as France within 3 years (1792)
- 'All belongs to Mother Russia' - (1399 Russian culture, from Russia )
- 'Basileus' - Restore the Byzantine Empire to historical border (1399)
- 'For Liberty' - 1773 as USA, be at peace, and own all 13 colonies.


Europa Universalis III Divine Wind releases soon.

"All belongs to Mother Russia'"-All your base are belong to us :))

Nice achievements especially: 'Napoleon was not this good!' and Basileus.
This type of achievements is just perfect for games like this, i wish to see more games with achievements.

One achievement in particular attracted my attention from
Magic: The Gathering - Duels of the Planeswalkers

Spellslinger
Defeat someone who has earned the Spellslinger achievement
I have to say this one is a no brainer.

Interesting. It's almost like Paradox is taking ideas from GFWL and Steam (yegads, I hope not).

That gives me a unique idea. SI achievements! :p Just kidding. But dunno maybe one day when we do all we're doing.

I gegerally don't get the idea of achievements. They don't turn me on. But obviously they're big on consoles and with some stuff.

Yeah something like that perhaps :) but not any time soon as we're doing lots of new projects and other projects are also waiting. So eventually :|
