Hey there!

Welcome to my blog. I talk about strategy games and more. Stay a while and check out my stuff. I'd be happy to hear from you.

Europa Universalis IV's Next Expansion Will Be a Europe Focused Immersion Pack

Europa Universalis IV's Next Expansion Will Be a Europe Focused Immersion Pack

In a blog post on the Paradox forums, Game Director, DDR Jake hinted at what’s coming next after the recently released Dharma expansion and Poland update. They’re going to focus on Europe next… in particular a rather peaceful and beautiful place.

With extensive love poured into India, The Far East and the Near East, it’s high time we brought some attention back to Mother Europe. Poland was a good start, but we’ll be rolling up our sleeves and getting to work on an Immersion Pack for our next release.
— DDR Jake, EU4 Game Director

Immersion Packs aren’t full blown expansions. These are smaller DLCs that focus on adding a bit more uniqueness and flavour to a particular nation or a group of nations.

The last immersion pack Paradox Interactive released for EU4 was Rule Britannia which added a whole bunch of new missions for the British nations as well as new events such as the Industrial Revolution.

Rule Britannia is priced at USD$9.99 which may likely be the price point of the upcoming immersion pack (or it might not. It’s a speculation).

DDR Jake also posted this cropped screenshot of EU4:

Some Paradox forum members with a keen eye discovered that this is a region to the South of the Iberian peninsular close to the border of Portugal and Castile.

Which led to speculation that the immersion pack will be focused on the Iberian peninsular or one of the nations in the Iberian peninsular. My bet’s on the nations in the Iberian peninsular.

Of course Paradox Interactive hasn’t come out to confirm that the guess was a correct one, so take it with a pinch of salt.

It’s worth mentioning that the file name of the hint posted was ‘life is peaceful there’ which could mean some new peace event or nothing. Information is sketchy at the moment as the team has just begun working on this DLC.

Expect to hear more about it at a later date. If you’re interested in playing a nation in the Indian sub continent, you can get the latest expansion Dharma for USD$19.99 here from Fanatical.
