Earlier this year, Paradox revealed Emperor, the next major expansion for Europa Universalis IV. Now, the Universalis IV: Emperor release date is here, bringing a batch of new features that expand gameplay options for the Papacy, the Holy Roman Empire, and revolutions, new missions, and more to the grand strategy game.
Europa Universalis IV: Emperor launches today (June 9, 2020) at a price of $19.99 / £15.49 / €19.99 on Steam. New features include a “powerful Pope” with the ability to “appoint cardinals, publish Papal Bulls, and gather tithes” – and ultimately, the power to “sway the souls of Christendom” – as well as new Holy Roman Empire systems that offer new challenges and opportunities to its emperor.
The strategy game’s revolutions have also been “revamped”, and, along with a new “early game chance to embrace heresy and stand alone against the Pope until The Reformation” through the new Hussite faith, a new Hegemonies feature, and new religious mechanics, the expansion also ushers in “new unique mission trees” into the game for a bunch of its different European nations, and more.
