Lognes, France –May 29, 2019– Simulation, strategy, and role-playing publisher, Eversim, updates their ultimate geopolitical simulator “Power & Revolution 2019 Edition” on Steam today. The game is currently available on PC and will be released on Mac in a few days.
Power & Revolution 2019 Edition puts you in the head of up to 30 nations in which you can choose being government or opposition. Try to implement cohesive and effective policies that will collectively guarantee a viable future for mankind!
“Power & Revolution 2019 Edition latest patch contains many geopolitical and economic data updates, including elections in Germany, France, Italy and Spain following the result of the recently held European elections”, claims Louis-Marie Rocques, co-founder of Eversim.
“This new patch also gives you the opportunity to play Venezuela with Guaidó’s oppostition party”.
Power & Revolution 2019 Edition simulates all the major perils that threaten the planet, such as global warming, the rise of populism, and cybercrime, among many others. It features over 800 top relevant political personalities such as Trump (USA), Putin (Russia), and Trudeau (Canada).
Simulations of major global threats
The game simulates all the major perils that threaten the planet and produces a comprehensive assessment for each one from the results along with specific graphics.
The list of threats is substantial, many of them are interconnected, and they largely reflect the objectives of UNDP (United Nations Development Program): global warming, the widening of social inequality, the risk of global atomic war, overpopulation, unemployment, atmospheric pollution, terrorism, cybercrime,regional conflicts, food insecurity, world hunger, deforestation, natural disasters (storms, floods, drought, extreme heat…), rising sea levels, ocean acidity, disappearance of animal species, climate refugees, epidemics, endocrine-disrupting chemicals…
One specific scenario, “Global Warming”, based on the the goals of the IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change), has the objective of limiting global warming to 1.5°Celsius for 2100, and to reduce CO2 emissions by 45% by the year 2030.
As the head of the 30 largest CO2 emitters, initiate a global energetic transition by pursuing policies on infrastructures (dismantling of thermal power industries, constructing power plants with renewable energies…), finance (taxes on petroleum products, carbon tax…), the environment, innovations(CO2 capture, development of electric vehicles…) and all while avoiding energy shortages and maintaining a balanced budget as well as social stability!
In this free-mode, futuristic game mode, nations have turned inward and have opted for more radical governments, many of whom have access to nuclear weapons.
Relations between these states are strained, are sources of conflict and key international organizations have been dissolved. The fight against global warming has failed: temperature curves are showing a rise of 7° in 2100 and serious consequences are being felt.
With an unprecedented economic crisis and a growth in social inequality,people are on edge, political upheavals are increasing and terrorist organizations are growing on this fertile ground of instability.

Geo-political Simulator project history, and its creators
In development since 2004, Geopolitical Simulator, a.k.a. G.P.S., strives to be ambitious and one of a kind, constantly evolving, with a team of dedicated specialists and developers. Its objective is to offer a simulation of today’s world whose comprehensiveness is constantly being improved—notably with data that is regularly updated—and to develop new scenarios that reflect world events and geopolitical upheavals.
G.P.S. is a software from the French company Eversim, a company specialized in the development of network simulation games in a persistent world. This company was founded in February 2004 by André and Louis-Marie Rocques the former heads of the independent video game dev studio Silmarils, which launched more than 30 games between 1987 and 2003.
For further information, you can look at their website: http://www.eversim.com/ns/en/videogames_silmarils.php
The simulation tools developed by Eversim are also used as serious gaming by several organizations (NATO for example) as a training and teaching tool for politics and diplomacy, as well as for simulating crisis situations.
Below is a video that shows a special version of GPS being used by NATO for training future diplomats, within a simulation session of a geopolitical crisis.
