Description

The Cossacks is the sixth major expansion for Europa Universalis IV and focuses on Hordes and Eastern Europe. This addition allows you to plunder your neighbours as a horde in order to keep your tribes loyal and raze their lands to gain power to advance in technology or reform into a settled nation. The internal politics of nations is brought to life with the Estates, representing powerful interests such as the Magnates of Poland-Lithuania and the eponymous Cossacks of the steppe. More detailed control over the cultures and natives living in your nation and the ability to work more closely with your AI allies and understand their goals will let you bring out your inner Peter the Great.
  • Estates: Adds internal politics in your country, with power groupings such as the Church, Nobility and Bourgeois fighting for control.
  • Diplomatic Feedback: Adds the ability to interact much more deeply with the AI by setting your attitude and telling it what you want out of wars.
  • Tengri: New religion mechanics focusing on Syncretism. Tengri have a secondary religion that they fully tolerate, and can change this secondary religion at will.
  • Horde Unity and Razing: Hordes must attack their neighbors to secure plunder in order to keep the tribes happy, or risk a tribal uprising. Hordes can raze territories they conquer to get monarch points and raise horde unity.
  • Advanced Culture Change: Adds the ability to choose what culture you want to convert a province to from any neighbouring culture, or restore the original culture of the province.
  • Native Policies: Adds the ability to set your policy towards the natives in your colonies, allowing you to focus on trade, assimilation, or subjugation.
  • Improved Espionage: Two new spy actions allowing you to study the technology of more advanced countries and agitate for liberty in your enemies subjects.

  1. Alot of money for features that aren't that good
    by Lan G., Netherlands - Jan 24th 2018

    The cossacks pricetag is really steep compared to what it offers, there are small benefits tied to each option based on making life a bit easier. Except for the estates, they just make life even worse

  2. Better Hordes + Revamped Diplomacy
    by Air H., Latvia - Dec 20th 2017

    This expansion focuses on two things: hordes and diplomacy. Hordes get a few nifty things, such as horde unity, which replaces legimitacy and forces them to raze down provinces to keep it high. The diplomacy aspect is the more appealing of the expansion: it changes the way alliances work with a "Favor" system and adds estates (esentially factions in your country). They are good and fun additions, though the estates are a bit disappointing and the "favor" system is a bit controversial. Look up a bit on this DLC if you want to know more, though I would personally recommend it. -1 star for having "give province to vassal" in this DLC though- that is really stupid and it should be free.

  4. A must have, but wait for sale
    by Jonas S.8, Denmark - Nov 20th 2017

    Estates is a great addition, it adds something you can do outside of wars. And adds extra realisme. Native policies is great as well, adds more realisme to the colonization game. The diplomatic feedback there allows you to decide what you want to get out of a war is nice, but the ai haven't granted me it in the only war i have played with it.
    Tldr: Great dlc, and a must have but not at full price.

  5. A fine DLC
    by Kriszti√°n H., Hungary - Nov 20th 2017

    Nice new features, however the full price is bit too much for me.
    I recommend it only on sale.

  6. Great DLC - Terrible Price.
    by dfox2014, USA - Oct 31st 2017

    I will never understand why Paradox makes you spend well over $100 to gain all the features of a game but yet here I am buying them. Only buy this on sale, but it does add some great features for peacetime.

  7. Highly recommended
    by Cristi P., Romania - Sep 12th 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.

  8. It's aight
    by Robert R.10, USA - Apr 17th 2017

    Like typical paradox dlc, it's pretty good, adds a few features, and isn't worth full price.

    by Bebeto, Romania - Nov 26th 2016

    Really good addition to the game. Estates hugely impact how you play the game when at peace. Buy on sale.

  15. Just love it
    by dorugradinaru, Romania - Aug 27th 2016

    I am a very big fan of paradox strategy games. This expansion is the best for me, because I can change the culture in my country as I like, to have native policies and create estates after I annex some regions from other countries mwhahahahahaa!!!!! Thx!
