(October 4, 2007) – Paradox Interactive announced today the release of their new
- download only - expansion: Crusader Kings: Deus Vult. The
expansision is now available for download on GamersGate and is retailing for
$14.99. Strategy gamers missing the original Crusader Kings will be able to find
it on GamersGate as well.
Critics have called Crusader Kings an impressive addition to the Europe
Universalis family. Aim to create the most powerful dynasty of medieval Europe
in the period of 1066 to 1453 A.D. Amass prestige; increase the greatness of
your lands and your treasure coffins, build Cathedrals and Castles, appoint
vassals and battle traitors, introduce laws and set taxes while interacting with
hundreds of courtiers and nobles.
The much awaited expansion Deus Vult brings:
·A graphical overhaul to increase player experience
·Various added inter-character relations, representing loyalty inside courts,
relations between countries, as well as friends and rivals for all characters.
No longer will realms just fall apart, a beleaguered King will always have
friends who will support him. Also beware as your smoothly running realm could
run into trouble when your nice loyal vassal becomes your rival.
·Introductions of new gameplay aspects like the stability affecting realms,
numerous traits for characters and options for diplomacy, such as the
possibility to send fosterlings to other courts. In addition an all-new system
for children has been added. No longer will a 3 year old be able to run a realm
effectively. Children are all now born with 0 stats and then develop over
childhood. You'll never know how good your heir will be until he matures.
·A revised interface to streamline gameplay, with several completely redesigned
windows. Immediate alert icons highlight immediate problems with your realm and
a full ledger with more than a dozen detailed pages.
·A variety of new events as well as a substantial amount of changes and
improvements to the tools used by modders.
