NEW YORK – May 28, 2013 – By Odin's flaming eye, the heathens are invading! Paradox Interactive and Paradox Development Studios are proud to announce that all gamers can loot and pillage their way through Europe as a pagan ruler in the expansion Crusader Kings II: The Old Gods.
The fourth expansion to Crusader Kings II, the critically praised strategy/RPG, finally enables you to play as a Pagan, with particular focus on the dreaded Vikings, and features a delicious blend of war and pillaging with a dash of ruthless brutality thrown in for good measure.
The heathens have arrived. View the brand new launch trailer here:
In The Old Gods, the medieval soap opera now extends the timeline by 200 years, all the way back to 867 AD, allowing bearded heathens to storm the fine cities of Europe. Gamers will soon have most of Europe out for their blood after they have stormed ashore with gigantic axes in their hands.
In a gift so generous that surely a human sacrifice is required in return, selected digital outlets are offering 75% off the entire Crusader Kings II franchise until May 30th to celebrate the launch of the expansion.
