Europa Universalis IV is the fourth game in Paradox's long-running Europa Universalis grand strategy series. You'll control a nation from Late Middle Ages to Early Modern history. Along the way, you'll naturally get involved in everything running a nation has to offer, including diplomacy, trade, and warfare.
The fourth game in the series offers a more directed first-time experience to new players while retaining the open-ended gameplay of its predecessors. You can play as one of over 500 different nations, battling the others for supremacy and dominance in an increasingly alternate-history European setting.
Europa Universalis IV has received a staggering 15 different expansions, with lots more minor DLC and content packs also available for the game.
