Paradox Development Studio announced that Crusader Kings 2’s eighth DLC, called Charlemagne is now available, along with the 2.2 patch, which adds new stuff into the game and fixes some issues.
Crusader Kings 2 Charlemagne DLC will take place in A.D. 769, and it will feature a story event set around the rise of the Holy Roman Empire. Other features included in this DLC are an Annual Chronicle, custom Kingdoms and Empires, new cultures, an innovative system for climate and seasonal transitions and an overhaul of the Regency system. The Charlemagne expansion pack is now available on PC, Mac OS and Linux and it costs $15. Paradox also released a trailer for the new Charlemagne DLC. You can watch it below:
In addition to the Charlemagne DLC, Paradox released patch 2.2, which is a free major update to the game. This patch includes new features such as tribal holdings, a learning scenario for new players, the Centralization law and an Era and character quick selection screen. An important change that this update brings is that wars cannot be won anymore unless a major battle has taken place or three years in-game time has passed. Several modifications were also made at the tribes level. Also, a lot of issues were fixed, including crashes caused by several player interactions with the game. For a full list of changes, you can check the official Paradox forums.
