Paradox Interactive has revealed that new expansions are on the way for two of its flagship grand strategy titles, Crusader Kings 2 and Europa Universalis 4.
Expect new mechanics, new events and new ways to change/mess up history.
Crusader Kings 2's Charlemagne expansion will set the clock back to 769AD, giving players another hundred years of history to play with. It tells the story of the titular King, who united most of Europe and founded the Holy Roman Empire. Yes, it's this guy's fault that the HRE is such a massive pain in the hole in the current version of CK2. Thanks, Charlemagne. Expect new story events charting the rise of his empire, new options for creating your own Kingdom and a Chronicle feature that logs all your greatest in-game achievements.
In Europa Universalis IV's Art of War, meanwhile, you'll find a bucketload of new military tactics, including the ability to sally forth from under siege, a new bunch of events covering the 'Thirty Years War', the ability to transfer lands to your allies and more.
Both expansions are on their way to PC, Mac and Linux in "the near future", says Paradox.
