The latest expansion for Europa Universalis IV, titled simply 'Dharma', is set to focus on Indian politics and intrigue, so as to open up an entirely new avenue for the classical grand strategy gameplay we've all come to know and love, and expect from the series.
Playing Dharma, players will have the chance to choose between defending India against the foreign commercial empires, or if they would rather set up a massive trading empire for Europe. Whichever option players choose, there will be plenty of gameplay to back that up.
The feature list for Europa Universalis IV: Dharma is as extensive as it is exhaustive, and includes designing governments from the bottom-up, a reworked Policy system, trade company investments, a Cossack government option, Indian mission trees, brand new Indian estates, and so much more.
Players will also have loads of new options when it comes to suppressing rebellious elements in their country, and they might have to find ways to deal with the monsoon season when it finally hits.
Dharma is currently slated for release on 6th of September, and released with it will be a free, considerably large update that will add certain features to base game as well. These include a more detailed map of the Indian region, an update to the Estate mechanics, and reworked Policies.
