Crusader Kings 2 Subscriptions Launch

The Paradox Interactive Forum has details on a subscription plan for Crusader Kings 2 that will offer access to all the additional content for the grand strategy sequel (thanks Eurogamer). The game is free-to-play on Steam, but the cost of all its DLC adds up to USD$310.70, so there's definitely a point to this. You can subscribe now on Steam for the price of $4.99 per month. Here's word on what this gets you:
Crusader Kings II is now available via subscription, giving users a convenient way to enjoy all of the medieval plotting and politicking that has made Crusader Kings a beloved game for strategists and role players alike. Subscribers will have automatic access to every piece of Crusader Kings II content with no other purchases necessary.

Things to look forward to in this Subscription Service:

  • 13 major expansions, including the fierce Norse of The Old Gods, the eastern riches of Rajas of India and the scheming vassals of Conclave.
  • 12 unit packs, including new army sprites for your medieval forces
  • 14 music packs, including two heavy metal scores
  • 10 portrait packs of clothing and faces for rulers around the world
  • The Game Converter which lets you export your saved game to Europa Universalis IV.
  • The Crusader Kings II Ruler Designer, so you can create your own starting monarch.
  • and many more improvements to the core game experience.
