One exciting change that this pack brings is the new Mission Trees. It introduces several special mission objectives from different regions like the Ptolemaic Empire in Egypt, Macedonia and Thrace, Seleucid Empire in Asia, and Antigonid Empire in Anatolia. In addition to Unique Mission Trees, there are also the Shared Mission Tree. These are Diadochi-themed mission objectives that are offered to all the Successor Kingdoms.

The content pack offers the following as well:
