It is the second map expansion that adds 3 countries (after Scandinavia), the third that expands the map eastwards (after Going East and Beyond the Baltic Sea), the second that features "Sea" in the expansion name & the second that features a transcontinental country (in both after B. Baltic Sea).
Release History Edit

- Before June 2018: Research and pre-production on this map expansion started.
