Posted: 22.10.2013 18:02 by Jamie Davey Comments: 10
Paradox Interactive has revealed that they're working on the fifth expansion pack for Crusader Kings II, known as Sons of Abraham, which will focus on three big religions in Medieval Europe; Christianity, Judaism and Islam.

 
Sons of Abraham puts you deep into the world of Papal politics, appointing your bishops, gaining influence with the College of Cardinals and reap the rewards of the Pope’s money and favours. Pick sides of the Islamic debate, choosing to follow the rationalist Mutazili or opposing Ashari or play as a Jewish lord and restore the Kingdom of Israel.

Crusader Kings II: Sons of Abraham will release on 18th November, 2013 exclusively for the PC.

I will give them one point, they do have a DLC pack fr EVERYONE, no matter where your interests lie. Myself I'm far more happy with the Old Gods

Finally, a new mechanic for church politics + the Jewish. I was beginning to wonder what happened to the development of this great game. This DLC looks a bit light, though, but I guess I'll just have to wait and see... :)

Talking about flogging a dead horse. More interested in the Mods for the game these days than any further DLC's, especially any concerning Religions.

See the good thing is, you can do that! Optional packs are nice that way :P

...or is it simply a last grab for cash for the 'completist'?
Just offering an alternate PoV.

If this was something like a Total War faction pack I MIGHT agree, but this is far too substantial to give that argument any merit. This is content that would never be available in the release version. I don't think you can spin making extra optional content for an already content filled game into a bad thing.

Such a cynic Hero :P Mods are great and all, but a developer shouldn't feel bullied into not wanting to work on their game anymore just because the community is involved.

Plus, you can even claim this was cut content from the main game, as two years have passed. What, you want them to put in all these man hours and not get paid for it?

There's a dedicated DLC team in PDS now, so it's not a waste of resources from other games either. EUIV is going to get the same treatment, which is fantastic.

I'd say "EU IV" will go on for years, which is no bad ting...unless you get to the point where you hurl every time you see the title. Can't comment, don't own the game, but this is stepping into Blizzard's "WoW" territory for longest running DLC for oldest running game (aside from 2K and "Civ V" which I am just blatantly ignoring because of 2K's treatment of Australians).

Always gotta have the last word....p!
