Play as the Aztecs, you will need to “subject the Mexican plain to your rule” but make sure you have enough vassal kings to sacrifice or the gods will get very angry with you.
As the European faction, you will need trek the Amazon jungle in order to lay rumors of the lost city of gold – El Dorado – to rest. The Pope will also use his hand to divide the New World among the “squabbling empires.”
The centerpiece of El Dorado is the Nation Designer, a tool that let’s you customize your starting nation in a campaign. Choose your starting capital and neighboring provinces, modify your starting culture and leader and then lead this new nation to new and original heights of glory. The infinite replayability of EU4 has just gotten even more infinite, if that’s possible (the company mathematician is still on holiday).
This expansion’s historical focus on the Central American and South American theaters of exploration will challenge you with new decisions worthy of a king or conqueror. As the Aztecs, subject the Mexican plain to your rule but make sure you have enough vassal kings to sacrifice to your angry gods. As the Europeans, push deeper into the jungles of the Amazon, following rumors of lost cities and magical fountains. Defer to the Pope as he intervenes to divide the New World among squabbling empires.
You can choose your “neighboring provinces, modify your starting culture and leader and then lead this new nation to new and original heights of glory.”
