Crusader Kings II: The Old Gods expansion goes all Pagan

Paradox are back with more Crusader Kings II action in a new expansion they are calling Crusader Kings II: The Old Gods.

The expansion will take gamers further back in time, as far back 867 AD giving budding conquerors the chance to play as a Pagan or Zoroastrian ruler. Going back this far in history probably means even more ruthless brutal warfare, they were right bastards back then.

Features players can look forward to include:

  • Religious Turmoil: Restore the Old Gods to prominence through sacrifice and divination, or force the pagans to convert through new missionary missions
  •  Earlier start: 200 years of more gameplay with the special 867 AD bookmark
  •  Rebels With a Cause: Rebels are no longer faceless rabble, but led by defined characters with specific agendas
  •  Adventurers: Watch as landless younger sons and charismatic warriors raise armies
  •  Pillage and Prosper: Loot provinces and burn cities to the ground lest your warrlike people grow angry during extended peacetime!
  •  Heathens: Convert them or play as them and survive, reforming your faith to stand the test of time
  •  Prepared Invasions: Declare your intent to invade a rich target, and watch adventurers and opportunists flock to your banner.
  •  Unholy UI: A new pagan interface is available alongside all-new events, decisions, and units.

The game is expected to be released some time in Q2 of this year.
