Paradox Interactive announces Sword of Islam
, an upcoming DLC pack for Crusader Kings II
that will add the ability to play as Muslim rulers in the strategy sequel. They say the DLC and a patch to support it will be released next month:
The DLC will release at the same time as the next hefty patch which adds new features to the game, such as an expansion of the map into Mali-Songhay, differentiation on strong and weak claims, new plot, expanded combat and more.
Sword of Islam enables players to rule as the Muslim lords, delivering a wealth of specific new mechanics distinctive to these rulers, creating a whole new gameplay experience. Laws, marriage, holding, traits , titles and more will work completely differently.
Paradox Development Studio will post a detailed development diary each Friday where they’ll elaborate on the new features of the patch and the DLC in the official Crusader Kings II forum: http://forum.paradoxplaza.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?551-Crusader-Kings-II
