Paradox Confirms Britannia Does In Fact Rule The Waves

By Joe Robinson 06 Feb 2018 1

Paradox Interactive have today revealed the name and focus of the next piece of DLC for their mammoth historical grand-strategy title, Europa Universalis IV.

Rule Britannia focuses on the British Isles, and the legacy it imparted to the world. This is an ‘Immersion Pack’, so not quite a full-featured expansion, but it’ll have enough bells and whistles to warrant being charted for. Naturally, it’ll come with a free patch update as well.

As per the press release, here’s a break down of the new features:

  • New British Missions: New exclusive Mission Trees for England, Scotland and Ireland,
  • Industrial Revolution: Highly developed provinces may produce coal in the late game, fueling higher productivity and greater wealth.
  • Innovativeness: Earn rewards for being the first nation to unlock new knowledge, including lower power costs.
  • Naval Doctrine: Adopt a general strategy for your fleets, giving you bonuses to ship maintenance, trade power or battle performance.
  • Anglicanism: A new Protestant faith can appear in England with new bonuses and religious choices.
  • Knowledge Sharing: Help your lagging allies or subjects by promoting the spread of institutions in their realms.
  • Trade Steering: Force your defeated enemies' merchants to fill your coffers.

No word on a release date as of yet, but it’s probably not long.
