This bigger, better take on 1701 A.D. is most noteworthy for including the Sunken Dragon expansion.
The 1701 A.D.: Gold Edition includes both the original version of Aspyr Media’s empire-building strategy game and it’s expansion pack The Sunken Dragon — which was previously only available in Europe. The expansion provides players with a new 11-mission campaign, new buildings and subquests, a new natural disaster, and a world editor that lets gamers design maps and share them online with friends.
