Europa Universalis IV: Conquest of Paradise Expansion Released For Linux

By - | Views: 9,369
Europa Universalis IV: Conquest of Paradise is the first expansion for the critically praised empire building game Europa Universalis IV, focusing on exploration of the new world and the Native American nations. 

The expansion allows you to send your ships off to the west and discover a new world, unlike any you’ve seen before – for the first time in a Paradox Development Studio game, you are given the option to discover a completely randomized American continent. 

Conquest of Paradise also offers the possibility to play as a Native American nation and master the federation mechanics and national ideas that are unique for the nations. 
The age of exploration is brought to life in this epic game of trade, diplomacy, warfare and exploration by Paradox Development Studio, the Masters of Strategy. Europa Universalis IV gives you control of a nation to rule and to build into an empire that lasts through the ages.

  • Discover a new world. A randomized New World means that no playthrough will be the same. Establish colonies to reap the riches, trade with the native tribes, or conquer them and take their land for yourself. 
  • Colonial Nations. Colonial Nations will be created out of larger colonies. 
  • Manage colonies or play as the colony. The colonies can manage their own affairs, declare colonial war or even strive for liberty from their motherland, or you can choose to take direct control of the colony and play as the new nation instead. 
  • Expanded Native American gameplay. Native American Nations have their own new federation mechanic, unique ideas and buildings and can migrate to greener pastures. Conquest of Paradise includes over two dozen Native American nations to play as well as new events and decisions.

Can someone tell me the different between EU and Crusader Kings 2? Crusader Kings was far far faaaar too indepth for someone who doesn't have time to learn so much about a game. Article taken from

EUIV is more in depth than CK2.

EUIV also covers a much longer period, has more world (pretty much the whole world), more factions, more religions and proper research. CK2 was a very good game (much more action focused) and is actually a nice intro to the EU series.

It took me a while to get going with EUIV, but it has to be one of the most rewarding games I've ever played -- once you get used to the mechanics of things like taking territories, over extension, vassals etc.

The biggest down side with either / any of them, is the time required to properly play them. I just don't have it at the moment, but will no doubt be getting this DLC for when I do.

Ouch I was hoping EU was a cut down version for people with less time, damn!

I could not grasp CKII with all royal mechanics. EUIV is much simpler, yet has more depth.

Quoting: Quote from AdamKI could not grasp CKII with all royal mechanics. EUIV is much simpler, yet has more depth.

That's true -- the dynasty mechanics are somewhat more complicated in CK; I wouldn't have said EU is simpler though.

Whatever EUIV is, it is definitely not simple. In EUIII I was able to conquer half of the world as a minor European nation if I kept good balance between warring and diplomacy. Now in EUIV I am unable to conquer a single province even as Bohemia. On the other hand, large nations are even more overpowered than they were before. I guess it is more historically accurate, but I prefer EUIII - even if I have to reboot to Windows to play :(

After continuing my game session with the latest EU4 update, half of my colonies immediately split off into apparently independent "colonial nations". I can't even find out what this means exactly as there is no built-in encyclopedia as in Civilization. The unofficial wiki has some information but it's not really clear either if or how much these nations still contribute to my empire. In fact, if there's one major gripe I have with this game, it's this lack of big-picture information (no Steam pun intended). Other than that though, it's great to have such an engrossing game on Linux.
