Banner for ‘Mandate of Heaven’.

Mandate of Heaven is the 10th expansion for Europa Universalis IV. It was announced on 2017-03-02[1]. The expansion will be accompanied by the free 1.20 patch on 2017-04-06.

Expansion features[edit]

Mandate of Heaven brings a host of new features to EU4, including:

  • Historical Ages and Golden Eras: Meet objectives in four historical ages from the Age of Discovery to the Age of Revolutions, earning new bonuses and powers for your country. Declare a Golden Era to further increase your chance of success.
  • Chinese Empire: New mechanics for Ming China, including Imperial Decrees and Imperial Reforms to bolster the Dragon Throne.
  • Tributaries: Force your neighbors to pay tribute to your Chinese Empire, paying you in gold, manpower or monarch points.
  • New Japanese Rules: Daimyos now owe loyalty to the Shogun – and the Shogun is whomever controls the imperial capital of Kyoto. Compel the loyalty of your daimyos with new interactions that require them to submit to your authority, contribute to your power or even commit seppuku.
  • Manchu Banners: Rally the Manchu warlords around your throne and call up the traditional banners to reinforce your army.
  • Diplomatic Macrobuilder: Common diplomatic actions are now easily available from the macrobuilder interface.
  • New religious mechanics: Confucian nations take a penalty to Harmony for converting individual provinces; however, they also have the option to Harmonize with other religions, a lengthy process that — when complete — unifies heretical and heathen beliefs with the true faith.

Free features[edit]
