Chanting and spices waft across Europe on an easterly wind as the all-conquering siddhas of strategy at Paradox Interactive and Paradox Development Studio today announce Crusader Kings II: Rajas of India. Setting their sights on the subcontinent, the fiery sixth expansion for the universally-acclaimed strategy/RPG Crusader Kings II gets intimate with India and its pluralistic religions; Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism. Karma has been kind!
Dust off your jewelled turban and defend dharma as a mighty Indian Raja, conquering in the name of Indra! Raise war elephant units and fight in the dense jungle terrain. Make Siddhartha proud as a Buddhist and advance your technology or maintain a harmonious stable realm as a Jain. Raid your neighbors as a warlike Hindu of the Kshatriya caste!
Crusader Kings II: Rajas of India introduces a wealth of new cultural and religious events that would appease even the ferocious goddess Kali, including meeting yogis and sadhus, celebrating Diwali and thinking about your reincarnation. Be careful, the Wheel of Life keeps on turning and those karmic forces can be equally cruel!
With all eyes on Hindustan, the map has been extended far to the east to encompass hundreds of new provinces in Central Asia as well as opening up the ports of The Red Sea and Indian Ocean for navigation by your fleets.
Crusader Kings II: Rajas of India will be available to download from digital portals this spring 2014.
