The latest Europa Universalis IV expansion, Domination, has a release date. It's coming on April 18th and will add new mission trees for disparate empires like the Ottomans, the Chinese, and the Russians, as well as new music, more historical detail, and lots more stuff. A free update is also incoming alongside the expansion.

Originally revealed earlier in MarchDomination is, as you might expect from the name, all about dominating and conquering your enemies. It adds new trees to make empires like the Ottomans and the French more expansionist, as well as opening up new military options for nations like Spain. You can check out the new Domination release date trailer right here.

Some of the new mission trees include a revised conquest tree for the Ottoman Empire, as well as different mission trees for the Chinese Han Ming and Qing empires, new ways to unify Japan, and extra ways to transform Russia into a Great Empire (although you may not really be in the mood to do so, given recent events). Minor nations such as Portugal and Korea (sorry, guys) are also getting changes and new mechanics, as well as expanded flavor.

In addition to major changes like these, Europa Universalis IV: Domination also brings new art and music, as well as a "rich menu of new historical detail", adding more reforms, special units, events, and more to the most powerful empires in the game. If you pre-order Domination, you'll get an additional music pack, March of Power, containing six new tracks to soundtrack your rise to victory.

Europa Universalis IV: Domination launches on April 18th for PC via Steam. You can pre-order it right now if you want to. The expansion will cost you $19.99, and rather amusingly, at time of writing, it has the user tag "hentai" attached to it. Make sure you're not spending your money expecting that, though.
