L’info avait filtré par erreur il y a peu, et Paradox confirme que Legacy of Rome sera bien la deuxième extension pour Crusader Kings II. Le thème est ici celui de l’empire byzantin et de son héritage romain. Différents mécanismes seront ajoutés ou améliorés, comme par exemple un système de factions, des compétences plus importantes pour les chefs militaires et les souverains, ou encore de nombreux nouveaux évènements. Pour l’occasion voici cinq captures d’écrans illustrant quelques unes des nouveautés.

Sortie prévue fin 2012. Pour plus d’infos sur le jeu, voyez cette page chez Paradox ainsi que notre article Crusader Kings II : le Moyen-âge dans tous ses états.
