Supreme Ruler Ultimate is a strategy game for Windows and Mac from Battlegoat Studios that puts players in the shoes of a world leader as they navigate historical tensions and international relationships from the past to the present. It's the sort of hardcore strategy title that appeals to a very specific crowd. Tomorrow though the game is getting some brand new DLC, called Trump Rising, that you guessed it - puts you in a world where President Trump is a reality.
It all sounds very much like the absolute worst case scenario for where the world might be heading. Which should make for a great game!
Within the United States, civil unrest fueled by racial tensions reaches even higher than in the 1960's. To China and Russia, the new US President seems so unpredictable and reckless that it seems logical to make a pre-emptive strike rather than wait for him to have a 'bad hair day' and launch a strike against them. In Western Europe, leaders are shaken by their new reality and realize they may have to make concessions to Russia now that America can no longer be relied upon. The European Union itself is in disarray as the UK prepares to leave and forge its own relationships. In Mexico, and even in Canada, militaries are brought to an unprecedented level of readiness over concern of Trump's ambitions.
How will this play out? Will you assume Trump's role as the new US leader and guide America to renewed Greatness? Or will you instead lead another nation and take advantage of a potentially dysfunctional America to further your own ambition?
This DLC adds the following to Supreme Ruler Ultimate:
- New Sandbox starting on US Inauguration Day, January 20, 2017
- Updated "Modern World" relationships, leaders, and regional economies
- Take control as President Donald Trump, or try to minimize the damage as another World Leader
- Build the Trump Wall - although you may have to pay for it yourself
- Encourage regional growth with the Trump Tower economic development zones
