In this deep character-driven strategy game, Europe is in turmoil. The lands are fragmented into petty fiefs, the emperor struggles with the Pope, and the Holy Father declares that all those who go to liberate the Holy Land will be freed of their sins. Now is the time for greatness. Expand your domain and fill your coffers, appoint vassals, battle traitors, introduce laws while interacting with hundreds of nobles, and create the most powerful dynasty in medieval Europe. Do you have what it takes to become a Crusader King?

Starting in the year 1066 and encompassing 400 years of European history, Crusader Kings II explores one of the defining periods of world history in an experience crafted by the masters of Grand Strategy. Take on the role of a Christian nobleman in the age of the Crusades as Medieval Europe is brought to life in this epic game rife with strategic and tactical depth.

Managing Editor of ManaPool, Peter lives in York, UK and is a great fan and master of turn-based strategy games. If he isn't playing one of those, you'll probably find him in a role-playing game instead. He's definitely not afraid to provide a straight up opinion on any game and has a strong like for indie developers. We all start small, after all.
