Downloadable content

From Imperator Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Downloadable content (DLC) is content built by Paradox Development Studio (PDS) as an extension or add-on to Imperator: Rome. 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. An expansion DLC is normally accompanied by a free patch that gives players most of the new content as not to hinder the playability of the game. As such, most DLCs are seen as optional content for players who wish to have a better gaming experience in exchange for some monetary support.

Base game editions[edit]

The base game is required for any and all DLC relating to the game. While cosmetic/music DLCs can be used with any game version, content DLCs can't be used prior to the version they were released with.
