Paradox Interactive announced at the start of the month that the latest DLC The Old Gods, the fourth expansion for the excellent and fun Crusader Kings II will be released at the end of May.

“In the first of three developer diaries delving in to one of Europe’s darkest and most brutal periods, project lead Henrik Fåhraeus explains the prominence that the pagans will have in the game.”

“Adding an additional 200 years to the gameplay timeline by pulling the start date back to 867 AD with the great heathen army rampaging across England, Crusader Kings II: The Old Gods will feature all of the key pagan nations and religions of the period including the Norse, Baltic and Slavic pagans as well as the Mongols.”

Crusader Kings II was my favorite game of last year and The Old Gods DLC looks like it may help stay there a few more years to come.

Crusader Kings II: The Old Gods will be available on the usual digital sites and from Paradox’s own store on the 28th May.
