Europa Universalis IV Origins DLC will have its focus squarely on Africa. The players will get to perform new country missions for Mali, Kongo and more. A free update is set to launch along with the paid DLC.

Europa Universalis IV is getting a brand new Immersion Pack soon. The latest immersion pack will throw the players into everything Africa has to offer: Zimbabwe's gold, ivory from Central Africa, Ethiopia's temples and more. The birthplace of humanity will be the playground in the new immersion pack for Europa Universalis IV, coming November 11, 2021. The pack's suggested retail price will be £7.19 ($9.99/€9.99).
