  1. Mandate of Heaven? More like: Gift from Heaven, if you learn how to play it. On April 6, Paradox Interactive released the tenth expansion for Europa Universalis 4 (EU4): Mandate of Heaven (MoH).
  2. The armies of the east get a shiny new look in the new Content Pack for Europa Universalis IV: Mandate of Heaven. Paradox’s artists have dipped into their history books for a fresh take on the uniforms and weaponry of China, Japan and their neighbors during the early modern era.
  3. Mandate of Heaven will greatly expand gameplay options for China Paradox For budding desktop Imperialists (and anti-Imperialists), Paradox’s Europa Universalis series is tough to beat. Those familiar with Crusader Kings or Hears of Iron get the gist of Paradox’s grand strategy games.

Mandate of Heaven is the newest expansion for Europa Universalis IV, the best-selling historical grand strategy game from Paradox Development Studio. In Europa Universalis IV, you control the fate.

Here’s an overview of the expansion via Paradox Interactive:

While Europe slowly pulls itself from a period of darkness, the East continues to shine brightly. The Ming throne is set on a foundation of thousands of years of civilization while Japanese warlords do battle in honorable array, holding tight to their bushido code. The gods have blessed Asia with wealth and culture. Are you worthy of the Mandate of Heaven?

In Mandate of Heaven you control the fate of any of the hundreds of countries around the world through the maelstrom of the early modern era, from the Age of Discovery to the rise of Napoleon. This expansion further enhances this epic experience by adding greater depth to playing the major powers of East Asia and adding a new “Ages” system to add more short-term goals.

Main Features:

  • Historical Ages and Golden Eras: Meet objectives in four historical ages from the Age of Discovery to the Age of Revolutions, earning new bonuses and powers for your country. Declare a Golden Era to further increase your chance of success.

  • Chinese Empire: New mechanics for Ming China, including Imperial Decrees and Imperial Reforms to bolster the Dragon Throne

  • Tributaries:Force your neighbors to pay tribute to your Chinese Empire, paying you in gold, manpower or monarch points

  • New Japanese Rules: Daimyos now owe loyalty to the Shogun – and the Shogun is whomever controls the imperial capital of Kyoto. Force your lesser rivals to commit seppuku to preserve their honor

  • Manchu Banners: Rally the Manchu warlords around your throne and call up the traditional banners to reinforce your army

  • Diplomatic Macrobuilder: Common diplomatic actions are now easily available from the macrobuilder interface

As with all Europa Universalis IV expansions, Mandate of Heaven launches alongside a major free update to Europa Universalis IV that adds new features, and improves the game in a variety of ways.
