Golden Century, the new expansion for Europa Universalis 4, releases on December 11. Unlike many other popular expansions and immersion packs, it doesn’t “try to change the game’s mechanics too drastically or add too much to the game world”, but at the same time takes “the grand strategy game into a particularly high-stakes part of history”.
Golden Century takes place during the Spanish Reconquista and has a broad focus on the Iberian Peninsula. It includes loads of naval-themed and pirate-style features. Yes, you can even play it ruling an entire pirate nation. However, you can also fight against them to civilize the seas and establish an order! There are new Iberian and Berber ship models and military units at your disposal.
Additional features also include minority expulsion (settling your distant colonies with homeland minorities), establishing orders (Iberian nations can appoint Jesuit, Franciscan, or Dominican clerics to govern their states to reduce unrest or ease conversion), new mission trees, flagships, and new music.
