Video game publishers Paradox Interactive and developers Paradox Development Studios have released their latest bit of DLC for Crusader Kings II. The seventh major DLC expansion for the game is called Rajas of India and focuses on expanding the game map to include India and its surrounding areas. It also allows players access to three new religions (Buddhist, Jain and Hindu), jungles and everyone’s fickle best friend, War Elephants. There is also patch 2.1.0 patch that includes many new things such as diplomatic range and one other companion DLC that have also been released. Finally there is a launch trailer which shows some of the new features in the Rajas of India DLC. Also part of Steams Midweek Madness Crusader Kings II and a lot of its DLC will be on sale for about 75% off (except recent DLC).
