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.

  2. 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

  3. 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.
