Paradox Interactive has confirmed that strategy title Crusader Kings 2 will release its next expansion on February 2.
The expansion’s primary draw is the revamped council mechanic. What this means for you as a brutal, ruthless despot is that the representatives of the people you rule over will start demanding some say in how they are governed.
Much like in the real world, keeping the representatives happy — and therefore the people themselves happy — is the best route to avoid civil war (or an axe between your shoulder blades, whichever comes first).
Take a look at how this mechanic works in this video here.
