Crusader Kings 2 has been the strategy game of choice for many people I know recently, and their incessant tweets/instant messages giving me updates on their army’s progress and how many children their queen has had lately have made the game sound immensely appealing. Well, now things are about to get even better as Paradox announce ‘The Old Gods’ expansion, due out later in the year.
The new expansion is set to include the chance to play either as a Pagan or Zoroastrian, and bring about the return of the Old Gods through sacrifice and divination, as well as a new starting time period of 867 AD, giving you 200 more years. Rebels now have needs and goals, cities can be burned to the ground, and you can now declare your intent to invade a rich target, and “watch adventurers and opportunists flock to your banner”. Check out the trailer below.
