Europa Universalis IV is a grandiose strategy game developed by Paradox Interactive. It’s the latest installment in a series of historical strategies. In EU4 players pick a nation and lead it through almost 400 years of its development, from 1444 to 1821.
More than that, developers released multiple addons, patches, and DLC that allow people to play with mechanics, built on historical events, books, or even entire regions the main game doesn’t cover. For instance, mechanics in the Art of War patch help players work around rebellions and peace treaties during the Thirty Years War and Napoleon Era and the Mandate of Heaven expansion has gameplay for meritocracies and new religions in the East Asian region. Plus, EU4 offers players to enrich their gameplay via various mods, like Extended Timeline Mod, which players use to develop countries through alternative First or Second World Wars.
Paradox Interactive poured a lot of love and effort into making Europa Universalis IV as versatile and entertaining as possible. We helped them with making art for their incredible project during a short three months collaboration.
