So everything that has been announced are now live. Is there anything to expect for the second year? There are still a lot of potentials.
For example, among the three new historical battles, one of them says:
“The Battle of the Three Kings – Sebastian of Portugal, a young and jealous king, has launched an invasion into Morocco under the pretense of a crusade. The Saadis, however, are not impressed and gather their army to meet the invaders. The Iberians may have superior technology, mercenaries, and the help of a local puppet sultan, but the sultan’s forces are fighting to protect their homes.”
So the DE historical battle has several Berber units, and there is going to be a new battle about Morocco, but they are still not playable. I have a feeling they were planned but cut.
If there is going to be an Islamic-themed DLC, they could come along with Mamluk Egypt and Safavid Persia, for example.
And of course SE Asia, Oceanaia and Europe still remain untouched.
