The complete naval war strategy series in one comprehensive collection!

NEW YORK– April 30th 2010– Paradox Interactive have today announced that East India Company Collection, the naval war strategy series developed by Finland based Nitro Games Ltd, is now available for both digital download at all major digital download portals and in a boxed retail version for a suggested retail price of€29.99.

Based on the historical East India Companies of the 18th century, East India Company Collection comprises of East India Company (both the original game and the Director’s Cut), along with the expansions Pirate Bay, Privateer and Battle of Trafalgar.

East India Company puts the player in control of amassing the most powerful naval trading empire to ever sail the seas. Featuring real-time tactical combat in beautiful, cinematic environments, strategy fans can engage in intense battles in both single and multiplayer modes. Fight, manage and rule nations from Europe to the Far East with eight nationalities to choose from: British, Dutch, French, Danish, Portuguese, Swedish, Spanish and Holy Roman Empire.

In Pirate Bay, players take to the open seas beginning in 1650 in control of a frigate and level 2 pirate captain where the emphasis is on naval combat, looting ships and raiding ports. Privateer introduces the darker side of naval trading and combat, revealing the nebulous world of the privateer who forges alliances based solely on a thirst for fortune and who will go to any length to see that his job is fulfilled.

Continues…

Battle of Trafalgar recreates the legendary naval battle fought between the British Royal navy and the combined fleets of the French and Spanish navies during the height of the Napoleonic wars in late 1805, as well as featuring historically accurate ships from all three fleets along with the key naval personnel of the battle.
