This promotion seems a bit silly since it's so obvious by now.
It's so obviously vikings... You can even see the dragon head of a longboat just to the left of those cliffs. Hope they're going to roll back the date a little though. Even though I don't share the same love for drugged up barbarians who did nothing but kill and rape as many people seem to, I'd love to play as a nation that was struggling against them like Britain or France.
Just show us the whole pic!
Have I acted out the comedy well?
I look forward to the having the opportunity to play an underdog society and becoming a dominant force.

For every subtle and complicated question, there is a simple and straightforward answer, which is wrong.

I'm still slightly suspicious that the person standing in the centre will turn out to be ethnically Mongol or something
My guess is that it's DLC centered around the Northern Crusades:
(Yes, I double posted. Sue me)
Vikings just seem a bit out of the games time span - by 1066, the "Viking" raids had mostly stopped, though there were still plenty of Norsemen. I was really hoping for a pagan DLC dealing with eastern paganism - Zoroastrionism, or Romuva or something along those lines.
By now it is so obviously vikings that it must either really be vikings or clever misdirection.
EDIT: As far as I know most ships on the Norwegian Crusade were longships so longship does not necessarily mean viking raid.
We've sailed across the sea
Rowed for miles and miles upstream
Passed by Aldeigjuborg
Seen Lake Ilmen gleam
Ingvar took the lead
After Holmgard as agreed
