Crusader Kings II: Sword of Islam Released!
Oh thank Allah it’s finally out! Crusader Kings II‘s expansion Sword of Islam has finally released today, with it allowing players to finally play as any Muslim character they choose legally, without editing the game. A brief synopsis from Paradox’s own post:
“Thought keeping an eye on one wife was bad? With the release of the Crusader Kings II: Sword of Islam expansion, this scheming strategy RPG will allow players to command Muslim nations, opening up a world of polygamous problems, new laws, traits, titles and over 100 new events, as well as a flavorful Islam-inspired interface. Experience the Crusades from the other side. Combat decadence within your own dynasty. And solve problems arising in your very own harem. Or just start panicking and invade France. Your call.”
Adding to the awesomeness is the fact that even without the expansion, a ton of game mechanics are being updated and bugs squashed with the 1.06 patch. But why would you stick with the vanilla game when you can now lead the Turks to glory, or take the Shia Caliphate to Rome? This game is the medieval soap opera that keeps on giving, and now it’s offering up a telenovela expansion, all for the low price of $10, less than a stupid map pack for a terrible shooter!
