This new Old World add-on focuses on character interactions – their wants, needs, and ambitions. New gameplay mechanics include the emergence of powerful rivals – figures with the popularity or authority to challenge your ruler in various ways. Stress mechanics will see characters struggle under the pressures of court life, forcing them to engage in revelry. What revelry you ask? The good old-fashioned kind – gambling, opulence, the usual.

The DLC pack also comes with other new features, such as:

  • Over 350 new events, mainly themed around politics, intrigue, and personal ambitions.
  • Over ten new character traits, such as “Stressed,” “Impulsive,” and our personal favorite – “Unpopular.”
  • A collection of new goals & ambitions.
  • Three new improvements and projects – Estates, Slums, and the “Opulence” project.
  • Six new historical characters who can become “Rising Stars” – important characters that have the potential to become your greatest ally or your fiercest rival.
  • New character portraits and event art.

Old World (and all DLC) is localized from English into German, French, Spanish, Russian, Brazilian Portuguese, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, and Japanese.

Old World is available to buy on PC via Steam, GOG, and the Epic Games Store for $39.99 / £34.99 / €39.99 / ¥4,980.
