Europa Universalis IV: Conquest of Paradise is almost here and Paradox Interactive has just released their latest developer diary which looks at the new exciting feature of 'randomised maps'.
This will let those who want to actually explore a 'New World' outside of Europe and Asia actually have their chance, as the Americas become entirely alien landmasses in the new expansion.
You can always have it switched off and enjoy a purely historical world, but Paradox now include an option to help inject some spice into the mix. No sneak peeks at the main menu.
If you opt for a randomised map then you'll only see what you've discovered when selecting which saved game to continuing playing, and won't have any glimpses at what the new map looks like. We still have regional names attached to the maps like Canada, Mexico, Brazil etc. with Native tribes generated randomly within them.
Europa Universalis IV: Conquest of Paradise releases tomorrow, January 14th.
