Beyond the Sea is the comprehensive expansion for the acclaimed Renaissance economic simulator Rise of Venice. Beyond the Sea provides players with a whole new challenge by expanding the game world with 13 all new cities to explore and trade with, as well as all new residence missions and challenging new Doge tasks which will see your family playing a more important role. Beyond the Sea also allows players to command a completely new class of ship; the NAO, the famous ship class in which Christopher Columbus discovered America in 1492.
Venice was at the peak of its power during the Renaissance and was viewed as a city of decadence, beauty and intrigue. Renowned as the linchpin of civilization and the cultural centre of Europe, Venice was the most important trading post between Western Europe and the eastern stretch of the Mediterranean Sea. It was also the stage for political corruptions and clandestine dealings.
This is where your story begins. As a young man striving for success, power and wealth and with the support of your family, you begin to build up a trading empire across Genua, Tripoli, Rome, Alexandria and Constantinople in addition to many other significant cities from the Renaissance. As you progress through the ranks of Venetian society, increasing your power with smart trading moves and calling in the occasional favour you can begin to assemble your own fleet. With this you will start to build up new production facilities, test yourself in challenging sea battles where you will face off against pirates as well as political enemies to finally become the Doge of Venice.
