Crusader Kings 2 artwork for the Jade Dragon expansion

Continuing the usual tradition of releasing multiple expansions at the same time, Paradox has just recently added a decently sized DLC to both Europa Universalis IV and Crusader Kings 2. Europa Universalis IV's Cradle of Civilization DLC has brought with it a variety of improvements to the Middle East, including new mechanics and features related to government, trade policies and religion, as well as the ability to essentially exploit a region for short-term gain.

Crusader Kings 2's Jade Dragon expansion has taken things even further east by focusing primarily on China. It features a variety of new units and fancy pieces of artwork, a tributary system that basically lets you suck up to the Emperor for political favors and riches, numerous new artifacts to collect and trade with, and the list goes on.

If you're interested in learning more about these expansions, allow me to share with you the recently posted developer breakdowns. They'll give you a pretty damn good idea of just what kind of content you're getting yourself into. Have a look, starting with Europa Universalis IV's Cradle of Civilization:

If you prefer the written word, however, you can learn more about the Cradle of Civilization by heading over here, while those of you more interested in the Jade Dragon DLC can head over there instead. Before you go, it is worth mentioning that while both of these DLCs are well reviewed, they are also quite pricey. So if you're looking to get the best bang for your buck, it might be prudent to wait for the inevitable holiday sales before diving in.
