Crusader Kings II: The Old Gods First Dev Diary and Screens

Paradox's bards spin new tales for Crusader Kings II expansion
Along with these screenshots, Paradox Interactive has published "A Different Europe", the first entry in a series of dev diaries about Crusader Kings II: The Old Gods. You can read it here.
The Old Gods will add a number of widely requested features to the game, including the ability to play as a Pagan or Zoroastrian ruler, expanding empires through war, pillaging, and ruthless brutality. Players will also be able to begin their in-game reign as far back as the year 867 AD, making The Old Gods officially the Paradox title that spans the longest period in history.
Crusader Kings II: The Old Gods will arrive in Q2 2013.
