The Heathens are Coming! View the First Video Dev Diary for Crusader Kings II: The Old Gods

Terror will follow in your bloody wake as you decimate and terrorize your way across Europe, all in the name of your heathen gods. Women will lament the slaughter of their men, children will sob for fathers never to return, but your gods will be pleased! This is the barbaric world of Crusader Kings II: The Old Gods, the fourth expansion for the universally acclaimed Crusader Kings II, releasing on May 28.

In the first of three developer diaries delving in to one of Europe’s darkest and most brutal periods, project lead and friend of The Update Henrik Fåhraeus explains the prominence that the pagans will have in the game.
Adding an additional 200 years to the gameplay timeline by pulling the start date back to 867 AD with the great heathen army rampaging across England, Crusader Kings II: The Old Gods will feature all of the key pagan nations and religions of the period including the Norse, Baltic and Slavic pagans as well as the Mongols.
