NEW YORK – January 23, 2013 – Paradox Interactive and Paradox Development Studio have announced that bestselling Strategy RPG Crusader Kings II is now available for Linux. The critically acclaimed title is the first ever game from Paradox to be launched on the burgeoning platform, and plans to bring other titles to Linux in the future are in the works. Crusader Kings II for Linux is currently available on Steam.
Heralded as one of the best strategy games of 2012, Crusader Kings II explores one of the defining eras in world history, in an experience crafted by the masters of Grand Strategy. Medieval Europe is brought to life in this epic title, rife with rich strategy and tactical depth, where ambitious kings will be charged with bringing their dynasties to greatness. Intrigue, backstabbing, and maintaining relationships—both intimate and political—are just as important as the ability to lead troops into battle as you quest for glory and power. Stand ready, increase your prestige, and listen to the world whisper your name in awe; do you have what it takes to become a Crusader King?
To introduce new players to Crusader Kings II—whether they’re on PC, Mac, or Linux—Paradox Interactive will live stream an introductory multiplayer session with Project Lead Henrik Fårahues tonight at 7 p.m. GMT (11 a.m. PST).
