As you may have noticed we aimed to release the Nothern Wars Update in April or May. You might have also noticed that this didn't happen. We are sorry but RL got in between our plans. In addition creating the tech-trees takes longer than expected because none of us can speak Danish or Swedish (although German can be helpful in understanding Danish if you speak our the words aloud.

But we didn't do nothing, here are 3 new tech-trees which will be in the next update:

As a dane, I am so excited for the Northern Wars update. You guys are really going all out with the immersion, implenting the native Danish words. If I may suggest, u should consider rename Danish army tech 5.7 (jægere), 6.3 (let infanteri bataljoner) and 6.4 (let kavaleri) so it is Danish grammar correct. In Denmark philosophy tech-tree, u could change it to following 2.8 (Det Kongelige Danske Skildre-, Billedhugger- og Bygnings-Akademi i København) and 3.5 ( Det Kongelige Danske Videnskabernes Selskab). If you would like, I could maybe help you translate English to Danish. If you wish to take me up on my offer, here is my Discord: Mastermind#6631 and E-mail: I am mostly on Discord, so you will have a higher chance on contacting me there. Keep up the good work guys!
