The sequel to Europa Universalis adds new provinces, new empires, more control over your empire (examples: free subjects/serfdom, Centralized/Decentralized government, Defensive/Offensive Doctrine, etc.), new religions, 100 more years (1419-1819), new music, and the ability to control *any* empire and annex any empire.

The economic part is basically the same as EU I, but some of the technology levels have changed. Many new random events have been added, and also historical empire-specific events are now possible (in other words, things that happened in real history can happen and you must choose one of several options that will determine the way your empire will progress).


Europa Universalis II Windows A large alliance besieges Rumelia
Europa Universalis II Windows Hilarious: Holland defects to the Mameluks!!!
Europa Universalis II Windows During the battle (Polish).
Europa Universalis II Windows Large Byzantine Empire - annexed Mameluks and Georgia
