The launcher's DLC management section.

Downloadable content (DLC) is content built by Paradox Development Studio (PDS) as an extension or add-on to Europa Universalis IV. They are modular in nature,[1] which means that a player can choose to play with or without a given DLC by checking them out at the launch menu.

The content described in this page is compromised of music and cosmetic DLCs which may serve to enhance the flavor of the game. Additionally, e-books are available for reading outside of the game. These DLCs do not affect gameplay in any form and are not shared in multiplayer games (as opposed to gameplay affecting content).

Music packs add new music created after the game's release to the game's soundtrack.
