As if you don't want the new Crusader Kings II expansion The Old Gods enough, Paradox Interactive thought that they would make the cult-games' followers squirm a little more by beginning a slew of developer diaries that will convince you even more that your Crusader Kings II experience needs this additional content!
The first Developer Diary entitled 'A Different Europe' ventures into the difference between the Europe you've come to know in Crusader Kings II, and the Europe of 867, and how this will concern you. If you've not even heard of the expansion, I think you may need to watch the teaser trailer!
The expansion will add a number of widely requested features in the game including the ability to play as a Pagan or Zoroastrian ruler, and expand your empire through war, pillaging and ruthless brutality. In the year 867 the ‘Old Gods’ were mighty, in England they pillaged their way across the land, deposing kings and establishing their own laws. In the East they had founded Russia, and pagan tribes were on the move in Central Europe.
With the Old Gods you can help matters through sacrifice and divination, or convert with new missionary missions, rebels are no longer faceless and will be led by defined characters, not to mention there is the addition of a new pagan interface and more.
Crusader Kings II: The Old Gods is scheduled for a release during Q2 2013 for PC, we guess these developer diaries will do as we plan which continents we will loot and pillage first.
