Crusader Kings II invades Linux

0

And a new announcement is teased on Facebook

I write about Crusader Kings II quite a bit, and I play it even more. If conquering the medieval world, using children as bargaining chips, and assassinating half of the heads of state of Europe was a problem, I'd definitely have a problem.

Now the intrigue-laden title is making its way onto Linux, marking the first time a game from Paradox Interactive has appeared on the platform. Other games in the publisher's catalogue will be available on Linux soon, but in the mean time you can download Crusader Kings II via Steam. If you previously purchased it on Mac or PC, you'll also be able to play it on Linux as well.

It can be a somewhat daunting experience -- as grand strategy titles so often are -- so check out this developer walkthrough on Paradox's Twitch channel, recorded yesterday, if you want some idea of where to begin.

Paradox is also teasing fans on its Facebook page with an image being slowly being revealed day by day. We're on day 2 now, though the image is far from complete. I see the sea! Or at least I think I see the sea. And is that the glow of a fire reflected in the clouds? I guess we'll have to wait to find out. I'm hoping for some more Crusader Kings II DLC.

Speaking of DLC, the latest expansion, The Republic, has been available for download from last week. It puts players in the shoes of a Patrician from a merchant republic, and changes the dynamic of the game completely. I've lost many hours to it already, and am in the process of chronicling the rise and -- perhaps -- fall of Doge Domenico I of Venice. I hope to have something to post soon.
