PC Game Adds "Women In History" DLC

PC Game Adds

Europa Universalis IV is a very good video game, but there are always ways to make it a little better. In this case, by adding some DLC that's not only poignant, but makes the game a little more realistic as well.

As it stands, EUIV — a game which spans centuries of European history, from the beginning of the Renaissance through to the global empires of the Victorian era — is pretty dude-heavy. Which is mostly accurate, since most folks in positions of power were indeed men, but which is not entirely accurate, given the fact one of those two eras I just named was named after a woman.

The free "Women in History" DLC (released over the weekend to coincide with International Women's Day) seeks to address this by adding 100 famous women to the game, who will pop up during certain events. Some of the more notable ones include Elizabeth I, Caterina Sforza and the French mathematician, physicist, and philosopher Sophie Germain.


    I knew it would be EUIV when I saw the art, very good game I concur Luke!

    Makes me think of this.

      Not sure if you mean because of the art or because EU4's had a pretty hefty serving of DLC since release. :)

      Some of it's crap I wouldn't consider worth the two bucks they charge for it - flags, icons, culture-specific units - but their major DLC packs have been pretty decent and usually in Steam sales so I don't mind.

      (Pic still rings pretty true, though.)
