Paradox Interactive’s popular strategy game Europa Universalis III now has a fourth expansion pack for the Mac that takes the action to medieval Japan, entitled Divine Wind. The expansion, ported by Virtual Programming, lets players assume the role of one of four daimyos competing for control over the Shogunate and the influence of the Emperor.

Divine Wind offers dozens of new building type (culture-specific to medieval Japan), enhanced diplomacy functions and more realistic trade development, ensuring greater province development control and more alliance and peace negotiation options. The expansion features more than 50 new achievements, and the game features a new graphical style with a more detailed, beautiful map featuring many new provinces.

In addition to the usual strategy and kingdom-development activities, players must also manage the internal Chinese factions in order to keep the Mandate of Heaven — a genuine historical concept and powerful philosophy still popular today — in order stay in control of developments. Users will discover layers of medieval Asian history and levels of society in feudal Japan as they play.

Divine Wind requires both Europa Universalis III Complete (new version) and Europa Universalis III: Heir to the Throne, as well as an Intel Mac running OS X 10.6 or higher. The GeForce 7300, Radeon 2400 and newer (Radeon X1600/X1900) video cards with a minimum of 128MB VRAM are supported; the Intel GMA chipsets are not. Divine Wind costs $20, and is available both from Virtual Programming’s website as well as game download service Deliver2Mac. The game is rated 12+ for violence.
