Quick Overview

The version command in Europa Universalis IV displays the current version of the game that you are playing. This could be useful if you need to know this for troubleshooting purposes or to ensure compatibility with mods or patches.

In-Depth Description

The version command in Europa Universalis IV, when entered, returns the current version number of the game that you are playing. It does this by printing the game version on the screen.

This command can be useful in several scenarios. If you're encountering issues or bugs in the game, knowing the exact version number can help when you're seeking technical support or trying to find solutions online, as some issues may be specific to certain versions.

It can also be helpful when using mods or discussing the game with others, as some features or mechanics can change between versions.

Furthermore, if you're playing an older version of the game and comparing it with the updated one or if you are discussing game strategies or changes with other players, you may need to use the version command to verify which version you're operating with.

How to Open the Command Console

In EU4, cheats are executed from the command console, a text box that you type commands into.

To open the command console press the ~(tilde) key, which is typically located under ESC (escape).

If your keyboard does not have that key, or pressing ~ does not work, try the following keys:

  • ~
  • SHIFT + 2
  • SHIFT + 3
  • ALT + 2 + 1

Type your command into the console, and then press ENTER .
