Paradox Interactive and Paradox Development Studios today announced Crusader Kings II: The Republic expansion.
In this third expansion, players will experience a whole new style of play as they take control of the head of a Patrician family in one of the great Merchant Republics. Take control of the seas to expand and defend your trading empire, survive feuds with rival families and plot to seize their Trade Posts.
Crusader Kings II: The Republic introduces a wealth of new features, including lobbying to become Doge, where investing money in the campaign coffers will make up for lack of family ties and prestige.
Crusader Kings II: The Republic expansion will release in Q1 2013 on all major digital download portals for $9.99 USD.
