Crusader Kings II enters closed beta

0

It's time to get your medieval intrigue on, Crusader Kings II closed beta sign ups started today. I've been waiting for this dynasty focused grand strategy game for what seems like an eternity. I've been playing the original a lot in anticipation and I'm considering picking up similarly themed Sengoku just to get my fix.

In Crusader Kings II players don't take charge of a nation, per say, instead they control a noble dynasty. You still manage lands and armies, but the joy is in developing a powerful family that spreads across Europe, dominating everything. Of course, sometimes it's better to set one's sights a little lower. You win more by keeping your dynasty unbroken until the end of the era. That's easier said than done when you have to contend with popular revolts, war, plague, and the treachery of your so called loved ones. Remember your favorite brother? The one who you honored with the title "Count of Cornwall?" Yeah, he's raised an army and now he's trying to take the throne out from under your inept arse. Everyone's a critic. There's no reason why you wouldn't want to go through that. Go sign up. Now.
