Free Features for the accompanying patch includes: Completely new rebel mechanic, local autonomy on province level, new cardinalsystem for Catholics, new reformation mechanics and a huge map improvement, making the rest of the world as detailed as Europe is. Lots of interface, ai and gameplay enhancements. When it comes to the map, Paradox has worked closely with the best map-modders in the community, and this will completely revolutionise how you play outside of Europe.
