From Press Release:

STOCKHOLM – 17 October 2023 – The great nations of the East look back on better days. Constantinople is no longer the center of a mighty empire. In Cairo, the Mamluks struggle to keep pace with an ascendant power to the north. And, in the plains and mountains of Persia, the Iranian people are divided among many petty kings. Reclaim the mantle of empire and restore your nation to greatness in King of Kings, a new Immersion Pack for Europa Universalis IV.
