The expansion allows you to create trade conflicts in secret, steal from your competitors with the use of privateers, use peace treaties to gain trade power and create a new trade capital to strengthen your grasp over trade.
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 an empire that lasts through the ages.

Pretty much an essential to any player seeking to play a very economic game. It adds piracy, piety-like mechanics for the Reformed faith (which absolutely sucked before this expansion). If you want to build a merchant empire from an OPM, this is the expansion for you.

Side effects: Makes the Hanseatic Union (Hansa) complitely overpowered in the early game due to their massive trade income and the ability to pay for level 2 advisors as a result.
