Paradox Interactive have unveiled yet another expansion to the greatest strategy game of all time; Crusader Kings II, this optional pack will allow players to begin their reign as far back as 867 AD making it the Paradox title that spans the longest period in history.
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, and to be honest, whilst we love the almost peaceful quality of Crusader Kings II, the ruthless brutality of The Old Gods sounds mighty tempting.
