Patrician III Rise of the Hanse (PC)

Patrician III is a real-time trading simulation featuring elements of construction and the historical background of maritime trade in Northern Europe during the 1300’s.

As a resident of a medieval town, your goal is to rise from the status of a simple, insignificant trader to that of a Patrician and perhaps even become the head of the Hanseatic League. You can raise your standing through town improvement and diplomacy or fill your coffers through piracy and smuggling.

Many new missions now exist for the player. The playtime and difficulty to become Alderman of the Hanseatic League have been increased. With Patrician III the game doesn't end when the player reaches the rank of Alderman. Additional missions and quests guarantee more fun, longer playability and player satisfaction.
