NEW YORK – November 18, 2013 – The air is thick with incense and prayer as the arch angels of grand strategy at Paradox Interactive and Paradox Development Studio today release Crusader Kings II: Sons of Abraham. Strategy gets spiritual as the divine fifth expansion for globally acclaimed strategy/RPG Crusader Kings II celebrates the three holy Abrahamic religions; Christianity, Islam and Judaism. Power in the name of the one true god is the psalm of the day!
To honour this holiest of launches the celestial beings at Paradox Interactive have released a new trailer:
The devout are rewarded with a holy chalice filled to the brim with new features, including hundreds of new religious events no matter whether it’s the Bible, Torah or Qur’an the lords are following.
Delve behind the scenes at the Vatican, playing Papal politics to get your bishops elected to the College of Cardinals reaping the benefits and hard cash from the man sat on The Chair of St. Peter. Dispose with meddlesome family members, sending them to a Holy Order and eradicate them from the line of succession! Convert to Judaism to restore the High Priesthood and Kingdom of Israel or settle on which school of Islam to follow; the rationalist Mutazili or opposing Ashari. Be careful which you pick as the followers of the opposing school are not going to be happy! Discover all the details of your doctrine in the Developer Diary scripture: forum.paradoxplaza.com
Piety is power and prayer is political in the hallowed new expansion for Crusader Kings II.
