Crusader Kings II: Sons of Abraham Next Month

Paradox Interactive announces Crusader Kings II: Sons of Abraham, a fifth expansion for Crusader Kings II that imbues the strategy game with the bane of the cocktail party, religious conflict. This is coming via digital distribution on November 18th, and to help catch us up on the project in a hurry, the first developer's diary is online. Here's word on the game:

Religion is the hot topic of the day and the faithfulís prayers have been answered; the divine powers at Paradox Interactive and Paradox Development Studio today announce Crusader Kings II: Sons of Abraham. Introducing a Holy Grail of new features, the blessed fifth expansion of the globally acclaimed strategy/RPG Crusader Kings II honors the big three in Medieval Europe: Christianity, Judaism and Islam. Deceit, politics and power are fine as long as they are in the name of one true god!

Become enlightened on Crusader Kings II: Sons of Abrahamís features and mechanics with the Paradox Development Studio team in a brand new developer diary: http://forum.paradoxplaza.com/

Plunge into the powerful and profitable world of Papal politics, appointing your bishops, gaining influence with the College of Cardinals and reap the rewards of the Popeís money and favours. Show your devotion with the Holy Orders; their clout will come in handy when you want to expel troublesome relatives to a monastery! 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 features hundreds of new religious events no matter what doctrine you follow!

Get ready to get spiritual as you crusade your way to greatness in the name of YOUR one true god!

Well, they're both strategy games, if you want to get technical, but yeah...I can see Paradox milking this surprise cash cow for every little bit they can. Not that I'm complaining...

I guess I am the only one who couldn't get into Crusader Kings 2 at all? Ever since I played HOI quite extensively these games bore me (all of them made with that particular game engine) something about how it handles the world map, armies, battles ... it all rubs me the wrong way.

I don't dislike the games, I just find them completely uninteresting. But I guess my problem is that I REALLY don't care about European history anymore. You could say I am over-saturated of it. (Which is why I am super glad the next AC is not going anywhere near the European theater)

Honestly i couldnt get into it either. CK2 seemed like a marriage simulator to me, which turned very boring very quickly. I much prefer Europe Universialis 4 over CK2

'I know what you think you are, what you want us to believe! But I don't buy it! For three years now you've been pulling everyone's strings, getting us to do all the work, and you haven't done a damn thing except stand there and look cryptic.'

With all of the seamlessly integrated DLC's this game has on top of a rock solid core, I have to say this is the most authentic feeling game I've ever played. I can't take civilization seriously anymore, it doesn't come close... it feels like a toy in comparison.

Civlization and Crusader Kings aren't even the same genre... weird comparison ~.~
