Editor Kalypso Media and the internal developer Gaming Minds Studios shared today that the maritime trade simulator Port Royale 4 just received its biggest update yet. Now available to all Windows PC users (with the console version coming soon). The free update has less than 500MB and adds an impressive number of improvements, fixes and new features.

Many more possibilities
With the new update, independence has become Port Royale 4. By fulfilling certain conditions, players can now succeed from their home country (France, Europe, England and the Netherlands). Once independence is declared, players can choose to a new name for your sovereignty
The update also introduces “economic crises” to the Caribbean. That is, optional game events that can have both positive and negative consequences. All of this greatly influences how the player establishes his business empire. These events can range from a locust infestation, to a reduction in a player’s grain and corn production, or a sudden spike in alcohol demand due to a church order for a county. dry.
On the other hand, players will also need to be very careful when facing enemies in the open sea. For now, there will be new deadly dangers such as cliffs, sandbanks, layers of seaweed and swirls. All of this can seriously affect business travel and, even worse, send a player and all their loot straight to Davy Jones.
Maritime traders can connect to the live stream on Kalypso’s YouTube channel. This afternoon from 7:00 p.m. for an exclusive live broadcast presented by Captain Patrick Leuschner.
