In case worrying about lines of succession, threats from abroad, and plots from within weren’t enough, Paradox is about to make your life in Crusader Kings II even harder by unleashing the Black Death. The Reaper’s Due expansion will have you dealing with the effects of the infamous bubonic plague outbreak, said to have wiped out a third of Europe’s population.
You’ll be dealing with a far more powerful disease that travels along sea and trade lanes, sapping your manpower and lowering your wealth. You’ll need to keep up hospitals and physicians, and keep your kingdom armed with the knowledge of medieval medicine. If things get too bad, however, you’ll need to seal yourself away from the plight of your people to avoid contracting the plague yourself.

The Reaper’s Due is the latest in a nearly infinite line of CKII add-ons, but it does not yet have a price or release date. If you just can’t wait for some bubonic plague action, Paradox has a choose-your-own adventure story available telling the tale of the epidemic. It’s part of the Crusader Kings: Chronicles app on mobile.
