Description

Common Sense is the fifth major expansion for Europa Universalis IV and focuses on diplomacy and the internal development of nations. This addition allows you to peacefully develop your nation and build a 'tall' empire, whilst also giving you the tools to execute grand diplomacy. Game changing religious features add depth and intriguing complexity to the gameplay.

The ability to work closely with your subjects and better control them through interactions and decrees should make common sense for anyone with designs to get to terms with the internal struggles of constitutional monarchies.
  • New Religious Gameplay: New mechanics for Protestants and Buddhists deepen the religious gameplay. Protestants acquire the ability to create their own national church by gaining religious tradition, whilst Buddhists must maintain balance between high and low karma (high karma ruler becomes detached from the world, while a low karma ruler loses trust of their soldiers).
  • Devotion: Theocracies have Devotion based on how closely they adhere to their faith, with high Devotion increasing prestige, papal influence and tax income. Theocracies choose their successors from 6 different alternatives, such as an influential preacher or a noble's son.
  • Subject Interactions: Over 15 new special actions that can be taken towards subjects, such as installing your own dynasty on the thrones of your vassals.
  • Parliament: Parliamentary rule for constitutional republics and monarchs, and a special parliamentary government for England. Grant your provinces seat in parliament and bribe them to vote on issues that strengthen your nation.
  • Provincial Improvements: Develop the tax, manpower and goods production of your empire by spending monarch power.
  • Free Cities of the HRE: Small nations in the Holy Roman Empire can be granted the status of Free City.
  • Government Ranks: All nations are ranked, from small Duchies to great Empires, and can increase their government rank as they grow in power.

  2. Finally another DLC that actually does stuff
    by Lan G., Netherlands - Jan 24th 2018

    Common sense basically adds variety to the HRE and the interactions with your vassals. Its decent for the price and i'd suggest you take this one

  3. A clear improvement
    by Jonas S.8, Denmark - Nov 20th 2017

    I bought it for the control with the subjects, its a clear improvement but you should still wait for a sale

  4. A great expansion (and a necessary one)
    by Air H., Latvia - Nov 19th 2017

    You mostly want Common Sense for the development feature, which will make playing nations outside of Europe not a pain. -1 star for that. Other features are great however, boasting improvements to the Protestant religion and making vassal managment a lot more fun and in-depth.

  5. Worked beautifully!
    by Carl V., Denmark - Oct 28th 2017

    This is perhaps the most important expansion pack adding major improvements like working with province development. This expansion adds some common sense to how the game works. Buying it here worked very well.

  6. Highly recommended
    by Cristi P., Romania - Sep 5th 2017

    This is one of the "tier 1", highly recommended DLCs for the game, according to reddit: https://www.reddit.com/r/eu4/comments/5et9si/which_dlcs_should_i_get_a_help_for_people_new_to/

    Good to get with a discount, one star deducted just for the ungodly number of DLCs that Paradox released for the game, and the fact that recent patches made it more-or-less mandatory to have Common Sense (the free base game apparently had new "challenges" introduced that can only be addressed through mechanics introduced in paid DLC).

  7. Nice!

  9. Paradox needs some common sense
    by troleibuzul, Romania - Jul 8th 2017

    Unfortunately the game cannot be played without this dlc. It lets you develop provinces which is very very essential and after the introduction of institutions it's impossible to play outside Europe without it.

  10. Valuable Game Play
    by cityracer, USA - Jun 17th 2017

  11. Serviceable diplomacy expansion
    by JRespaldiza, USA - May 18th 2017

    If you enjoy the diplomacy aspect of grand strategy over conquest or exploration, then this will be a good pick up for you. The expanded religious mechanics are a nice bonus.

  12. Good Addon
    by dfox2014, USA - Dec 13th 2016

    I'm not a fan of DLCs as they are generally rip offs but this one adds some pretty important things to the base game if you like the compllexities of running an empire.
