21 October 2014 - 10:05 AM

Ancaster, Canada - BattleGoat Studios is thrilled to announce the release of their latest Real Time Geopolitical Strategy / Wargame, Supreme Ruler Ultimate.
 
Lead Designer and Co-Founder David Thompson commented, "This title represents fourteen years of what has been a labor of love.  Supreme Ruler Ultimate is the culmination of all the design revisions and content we've created since forming the studio in 2000 and there should be something for everyone, whether they want to re-play WWII or take over the world from a near future Scotland or an independent Texas!”

BattleGoat's Lead Programmer and Co-Founder George Geczy added, " Supreme Ruler Ultimate brings together our vision for a truly epic strategy game that encompasses some of the most turbulent times of human history - World War II, the Cold War, and the challenges we face in the near future.  We're proud to have made one of the most detailed and comprehensive series of strategy games ever created."  Previous BattleGoat titles in the Supreme Ruler series are Supreme Ruler 2010, Supreme Ruler 2020. Supreme Ruler Cold War, and Supreme Ruler 1936.  
 
Thompson went on to answer questions about the future of the series. “Right now we are quite happy with what the Supreme Ruler series has achieved.  Ultimate gets us to what we originally envisioned and we will continue to supply additional content for our players and support to our modding community.  While we do not currently have plans for another Supreme Ruler stand-alone title, we will still update and enhance the game based on community feedback.  Everyone at BattleGoat feels indebted to our players and we continue to appreciate the support they provide us!”
 
Supreme Ruler Ultimate is available now for PC and Mac through Steam and other vendors.
