In the demo version, players will jump into the turmoil of today’s politics on the side of one of two countries – Germany, the most industrialized and populous country of Europe, home of numerous technological and economic achievements, facing many odds and hard decisions as the EU’s leading power; or Russia, the world’s largest country in terms of surface area, striving to regain its former superpower glory and bearing the scars of Soviet collapse. The demo will offer scenarios designed specifically for a quick introduction to the choices and possibilities players are likely to face in Realpolitiks.
