Paradox Interactive is proud to announce that Global Crisis, the eagerly anticipated expansion to the geo-political, military strategy game Supreme Ruler 2020, has been released today and will be available via digital download on GamersGate.

David Thompson, Lead Designer and Co-Founder of BattleGoat Studios, said, "We wanted to make sure that there would be plenty of additional content to increase the enjoyment and replayability of the original game. Although the new campaign and scenarios are the main emphasis of the expansion pack, it's really the many subtle improvements such as flags on unit HUDs and allowing players to rename Battle Groups, that I think our players will appreciate the most."

Global Crisis includes many new features:

20 new scenarios which more than double the number of scenarios that originally shipped with the game

Additional new multiplayer scenarios

New campaign/sandbox map along with a new storyline leading players towards World War III

New scenario features including scripted and random events

Improved unit control and grouping

Expanded tech tree

New units and unit meshes

Additional game lobby options

Graphic improvements

AI enhancements

More tutorials and in-game tips

User interface improvements

The expansion requires Supreme Ruler 2020 and is available exclusively via digital download via GamersGate and Direct2Drive. Suggested retail price is $19.99. A gold pack including both Supreme Ruler 2020 and Global Crisis will also be available at GamersGate.
