Major features since previous official release:

  • Main Screen > can view popular vote totals

  • large number of updates to the Editor
  • can import user-designed campaigns with a click

If direct popular vote is selected for a campaign in the Editor, computer player strategy is not updated (computer players still think regions are winner-take-all).

You can download it here for Windows, here for Mac.
