BattleGoat Studios Announces Release Date for Geopolitical Realtime Strategy Supreme Ruler 2030

BattleGoat Studios has announced July 25, 2023 as the official release date for their upcoming title Supreme Ruler 2030. Supreme Ruler 2030 is a next generation geopolitical real-time strategy game for PC, developed by BattleGoat Studios and distributed through Steam.

The title offers players the opportunity to choose a region and take on the role of that nation’s leader. Nearly all present day countries and regions will be represented, from Afghanistan to Zimbabwe. Players have control over the finances, industries, military, research and diplomacy of the selected country. Gameplay is in variable speed real time, allowing actions while paused for planning and faster speeds to watch the action unfold. Government ministers are there to assist players, allowing them to manage what they want, and automate less important decisions.

During the recent Steam NextFest, thousands of strategy game enthusiasts played BattleGoat Studios’ demo. The full game will include four future campaigns as well as four sandbox maps, including an isolationist near-future world in 2030, a sandbox based on the current geo-political conditions of 2023, and a shattered world future where nations have collapsed into regional conflicts.

Expanding on past titles, Supreme Ruler 2030 includes a rebuilt game engine for 64 bit support, DirectX 11 graphics, and a more robust AI for both military and country management. Improvements for lighting, effects, water and terrain provide a better visual experience. Performance improvements allow faster gameplay. Revised storylines, military inventory, research tree, country relationships and heads of state create an entirely new Supreme Ruler experience.

The Supreme Ruler series is the longest-running PC game franchise still in active development, with the series having just celebrated 40 years since the original release of the text-based Supreme Ruler game for the TRS-80, and 15 years since the release of the award-winning Supreme Ruler 2020, which set a new bar for scale and scope in strategy games.
