- Balance Changes
- AI Tuning
- Bug Fixes
- Visuals Fixes
- Multiplayer Fixes
- UI Additions

Of course, these sections go a lot more in-depth on the Steam page, but you’re not here for the patch notes — you want to know about the DLCs.
Poland Civilization & Scenario Pack — $4.99
This latest DLC allows you to rule over Poland as Jadwiga, King (although technically a woman) of Poland who ruled in 1384. She brings with her the unique mounted unit, The Winged Hussars, as well as the Sukiennice, a unique building that boosts trade routes. She also has the ability to swipe land off other nations, similar to culture bombing in Civilization V.
The DLC also boasts a 60-turn scenario to defend Poland, Prague and Vienna from angry folks like the Teutonic Knights and the Ottoman Empire, who are up to their usual sneaky ways.
Vikings Scenario Pack — $4.99
The Viking Scenario pack adds six new city-states to the game, as well as a 100-turn scenario with plenty of exploration and coastal village raiding. It also includes three iconic landmarks of the old-world in the form of Ireland’s Giant’s Causeway, Norway’s Lysefjord and Eyjafjallajökull, a volcano in Iceland.
All-in-all this some great DLC for those looking for more content and scenarios to test their mettle, as well as general patches and optimizations for all.
