It is the result of years of development, testing and hard work,” says Christian Lovstedt, General Manager at Midjiwan AB.“The update takes our game to the next level of complexity and fun. We can’t wait for players to sink their teeth into all the new features we’ve prepared for them.”
In short, Diplomacy’s new features allow players to form alliances with other humans and AI, build embassies, find player capitals, dispatch spies, and launch sophisticated sneak attacks from what may appear to be nowhere. Players must stay on their toes to master and counter the new set of tools in their arsenal.
The Diplomacy Tech can be used both in single-player and multiplayer. At its core, the technology was made to allow players to team up and take down larger foes. However, when all is said and done, there can only be one winner…
