Third Rome Expansion for EUIV

By FallenXE - 17th May 2017 - 15:09 PM

During PDXCon 2017, Paradox Interactive recently announced the next expansion pack for Europa Univeralis IV titled "Third Rome". This is the first in a series of what the company is calling "Immersion Packs", focused and faction/region specific upgrades to refresh aspects of the game.

"Third Rome" will focus on Russian factions and as the name states, will look at Russia's claim as the last bastion of Orthodox Christianity and taking up the mantle of the Roman Empire, with the original Italy-based one as well as the Constantinople-led Byzantine Empire having collapsed in the 5th and 15th centuries respectively.

Accompanying the announcement for Third Rome is the trailer for it:

The following are the features thus far announced to be included in the Immersion Pack:

Features of Europa Universalis IV: Third Rome include:
  • Tsardoms and Principalities: New ranks of Russian government with new abilities and, for Tsars, strong bonuses including the right to claim entire States – not just provinces
  • Iconography: Commission great religious icons for the Orthodox Church, boosting your empire’s power depending on the saint you choose to revere
  • Metropolitans: Consecrate highly developed provinces with Metropolitans, adding to the authority of the Orthodox Church, but for a cost.
  • Streltsy: Special Russian soldiers that excel in combat, but raise the cost of stabilizing your empire
  • Siberian Frontier: Russia can slowly colonize uninhabited border regions, with no fear of native uprisings
  • New Graphics: Includes three full unit packs and new portraits for Eastern Europe.

As usual, Third Rome will be accompanied by a free update to Europa Universalis IV, available for everyone who owns the base game.
