A stand-alone addon for Civilization IV and a remake of Colonization from 1994. So the basic premise of the game is still that you become the Viceroy of one of the 4 playable countries (Netherlands, Spain, France and England) in 1500 with the goal to declare independence from the old world and survive the repercussions in form of the Independence War before the year 1800 (although the winning conditions can be changed).
Based on which country and which of the 2 available Viceroys of that country you choose, you get different bonuses and start with different units on your lone ship in front of the shores of either a random generated map or a part of real America -- but the first goal is always the same: building a settlement at a good location.
