This Tuesday: It’s all about Europa Universalis, but not all of it

My personal take
I hope you like grand strategy, because today’s bundle is all about Europa Universalis IV, but not all of it, and that’s quite literal! Last time Humble ran one like this, for Crusader Kings II, the reception seemed quite positive as many likely saw it as a chance to save some serious cash on DLC. For sure, your pockets don’t have to be lined like Tim Sweeney’s to satisfy your completionist drive, neither this DLC can honestly be called cheap, at least in the relative terms of how many other games that money could buy.
This time around, we’re dealing with the fourth revision of Europa Universalis, a more traditional affair than don’t-know-what-I’m-doing-but-still-having-a-blast CK2. Will this prove as popular?
Now, for the nitty-gritty of what is, and what isn’t there:
- Expansions: 11 out of 12; leaving out only Conquest of Paradise.
- Immersion packs: all 3.
- Content packs: none.
- Collections: none.
- Pre-order Pack
- The 100 Years War Unit Pack
- The Purple Phoenix Expansion
- Digital Extreme Edition Upgrade:
- The Stars and Crescent Pack Even Pack
- The Horsemen of the Crescent Unit Pack
- The Conquest of Constantinople Music Pack
- Europa Universalis IV: American Dream Event Pack
- Europa Universalis IV: The 100 Years War Unit Pack
- Europa Universalis IV: The Purple Phoenix Expansion
This refers, of course, to the top tier which will run you $17, roughly equivalent to the price of one expansion, without discounts. Can’t argue with the value proposition, really. While busy writing these notes, BTA has risen to ~$7: again, nothing to sneeze at, for that leaves out just Cradle of Civilization and Mandate of Heaven, but comes with 8 other expansions. Sounds like more than a decent bargain, for those who are not quite $17 sure they want more, though those extra $10 might turn out to be a false economy in the long run.
Please note: a previous version of this post claimed that top tier contained the Dharma Content Pack, as per Humble’s public-facing page. This has been changed to Dharma Expansion: all of the relevants posts have now been edited to reflect this correction.
In other news, Fanatical has been reheating old re-bundles, so excuse me if I’m not going into details - you can take a looksee here.
