A new “role-playing” focused expansion for Crusader Kings 2, Way of Life, will hit the internet next week.
Crusader Kings 2: Way of Life adds a load of diplomatic interactions – including letting you “fine-tune your methods of seduction and break ups”, in addition to setting up spies, challenging people to duels, and the like – as well as letting you change your ruler’s way of life by giving them a Focus. Focuses give them a boost to their skills and “help shape the course of their development through events and decisions.”
There are 10 Focuses in total: Rulership, Business, Hunting, War, Family, Carousing, Seduction, Intrigue, Scholarship, and Theology. Rulership focuses on making your monarch a better king, for instance, while Business is all about making money. And, naturally, there are hundreds of new events and 20 new event images which tie into a character’s Focus, with some events triggered only by having a corresponding focus.
Crusader Kings 2: Way of Life will launch on 16 December, and will be priced at $7.99. You can see some very focused screens below.
Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
