Crusader Kings II – Monks and Mystics : nouvelle vidéo

Paradox diffuse une vidéo présentant plus en détails les différentes caractéristiques de Monks and Mystics, la prochaine onzième extension de Crusader Kings 2. Qui a d’ailleurs fêté ses cinq ans ce mois-ci, offrant pour l’occasion aux joueurs un mini DLC cosmétique ajoutant des portraits concernant les dynasties dans le sud de l’Inde.

Au menu de ce nouveau dev diary, des explications concernant les sociétés secrètes et autres cultes qui viendront pimenter la vie de vos royaumes. Mais aussi au sujet de l’inventaire, une nouvelle fonctionnalité utile pour gérer les reliques que l’on pourra désormais trouver. Ou encore sur comment gérer plus facilement ses prisonniers. Plus utile, on découvre la possibilité d’indiquer des directions à suivre pour les armées alliées aux vôtres, mais aussi une amélioration générale de l’interface, pour une meilleure lisibilité des nombreuses données gérées par le jeu.

Pour plus d’informations sur Crusader Kings II: Monks & Mystics, dont la sortie est désormais prévue le 7 mars prochain, voyez les communiqués suivants, cette fiche chez Paradox et les archives des carnets de développement.

Au passage sachez que vous pouvez désormais retrouver facilement tous nos tests concernant cette série, sur cette page.

Crusader Kings II Celebrates Five Years Without Being Poisoned
Paradox’s Medieval Strategy Classic Still Going Strong Half a Decade Later

STOCKHOLM – 14 February 2017 – On Valentine’s Day 2012, Paradox Development Studio and Paradox Interactive released Crusader Kings II, a game about Medieval conquest, intrigue, diplomacy, and faith. Over the last five years, Paradox has updated, supported and expanded Crusader Kings II and it continues to challenge the development team’s imagination. Over the last five years, the game has sold over a million copies, not counting the many hundreds of thousands of sales for the many expansions and cosmetic DLC.

Crusader Kings II launched Paradox Development Studio into a new era of popular success, demonstrating that broad and complex games about serious subjects could find a large audience. For half a decade, the game’s community has shared stories of world conquest, daring Crusades, accidental empires and soul-compromising sins.

Let’s be honest; there has been a lot of murder.

To mark this milestone, Paradox will dedicate much of 2017 to celebrating Crusader Kings II and its community. The first step in this year of modern medieval pageantry is to give away a free portrait pack to everyone that owns Crusader Kings II. This South Indian portrait pack will add more color and personality for those who fight for control of the great subcontinent. The pack is available here.

And then tomorrow the celebrations continue with a celebratory video from LongGameShort.  His humorous animated videos are firm favorites of the Dev team and the community, so it seemed only right to involve him in our celebrations!

Paradox is very grateful for everyone that has embraced Crusader Kings and hopes that you will join us  through the year as we pay homage to the lord and master of role-playing grand strategy games.

Those who have not delved into the plotting and intrigue of Crusader Kings II can even pick it up with up to a 75% discount at the Paradox store here!
