Paradox Interactive and developer C Prompt Games have released 4X strategy game Millennia. It’s available on Steam ($39.99).

As with older brother (or maybe grandfather at this point) strategy game Civilization, Millennia allows players to shape their nation through 10,000 years of human history.

Or specifically, ten different eras of human history.

In Millennia, the ages and eras can change depending on the events, technology, and choices made during the game. This can sometimes result in What If ages such as Steampunk, or Heroic.

A nation is made up of National Spirits that provide specific bonuses. National Spirits can be unlocked and acquired while your nation progresses, creating an identity as you grow. By mastering the six Domains of Exploration, Government, Warfare, Diplomacy, Engineering, and Arts, you can steer your nation in different directions.

Also, unlike Civilization, logistics and supply chains actually matter in Millennia. This focus on economy sounds a bit like the old The Settlers series.

In addition to the standard edition, Millennia is also available in a Premium Edition. The Premium Edition includes the Ancient Worlds and Atomic Ambitions post-launch DLC (releasing later this year), as well as two cosmetic packs for units (available now).

Millennia has not yet been rated by the ESRB.
