Ancaster, Canada - BattleGoat Studios is proud today to announce Supreme Ruler Ultimate, the most ambitious and comprehensive title in our Supreme Ruler strategy game series.  With the announcement of Supreme Ruler Ultimate David Thompson, Lead Designer and Co-Founder explained, "Our recent release of Supreme Ruler 1936 has proven to be very popular with our fans and strategy/wargame players as it revolves around World War II, but one of the biggest requests we've received has been to blend it with the near future game we released back in 2008, Supreme Ruler 2020.   That game provided players with the opportunity to make anything they wanted of our modern world, from any starting nation, without any preconceived expectations."  

Supreme Ruler Ultimate will incorporate the content from all of BattleGoat's Supreme Ruler series, letting players take control of a nation from the historic troubles of World War II, through the Cold War, and into the near future where established relations are undermined by disorder and turmoil.  Thompson went on to comment, "With what is currently going on internationally and the intense domestic polarization forming within various countries, it certainly is not hard to imagine a spark spreading unparalleled chaos through our world."  Thompson indicated that BattleGoat will continue to add historic events and content to the game for players that want to start in the 20th century, as well as updating the near future storyline to incorporate new technology threads and to reflect the new international crises that have developed.

Supreme Ruler Ultimate will be released on October 17, 2014 at an SRP of $29.99, and an announcement regarding a Steam Early Access Beta is expected soon.  BattleGoat have also announced that owners of Supreme Ruler 1936 will be given a special upgrade price to the new title.
