Crusader Kings 2 Expanding East

Posted on 25 Aug 2017

Grand scale strategy masterpiece Crusader Kings has tackled complex medieval politics, conquest, and whether or not you should tax turnips (maybe.) Heck, it’s even covered Game Of Thrones thanks to modders.

Now Crusader Kings 2‘s world is perhaps set to be conquered – the new expansion titled Jade Dragon, is introducing China as an off-map influence that can offer rewards or danger depending on your dealings with them and their allies. As the press-release below says; “What’sthe old saying about crisis being both “danger” and “opportunity”?” Terrible punctuation aside, it probably means players will have an opportunity for crisis, as all our Crusader Kings 2 games devolve into after about 5 minutes.
