A region rich in history and culture promises great material riches to the empire that can control its trade. The competition for territory and access to the wealth of India requires diplomatic tact and some military muscle.

Europa Universalis IV: Dharma is a new expansion for Paradox Development Studio’s classic game about exploration and empire building in the early modern era. Dharma devotes its greatest attentions to the battles over the control of India’s trade and territory. It also hopes to add more peace time decisions to fill in those quiet moments when you are planning your next big push for power.

NEW MUGHAL CULTURE BONUS: The Mughal Empire can assimilate and accommodate newly conquered cultures with ease. CHARTER COMPANIES: Europeans can buy a foothold into trade charter zones in Africa and Asia, if they can find a prince that trusts them. UPGRADED TRADE CENTERS: Invest in the development of your Centers of Trade AND MORE, INCLUDING: New ways to suppress rebellion, the monsoon season, new uses for colonists in non-colonial development, scornful insults, multiplayer teams, new art, and a host of new achievements.

Reviews

Dharma continues Paradox's trend of iterating and improving the base game, but this expansion feels like it's only for the most loyal of EU4 players. With changes and improvements to systems that feel a bit dense and additions that feel like content for content's sake, it's all starting to feel disappointingly stale.

The reason you should get the new Dharma expansion is not because of these policies or the minor tweaks it introduces to Europa Universalis IV. Rather, because it transforms the subcontinent of India into a much more interesting region. With the specific caste systems and the trading overhaul, the area is much more alive for those who play as natives or those who play as foreign trade empires.
