    First-Ever Screenshot Released for Crusader Kings Z

    Crusader Kings Z ~ A Zombie Invasion Minimod for CK2 has been created by the excellent modders Korbah & SaintDaveUK:
    http://forum.paradoxplaza.com/forum/...usader-Kings-Z

    Happy Halloween!


    STOCKHOLM – April 1st, 2013 –
    Paradox Development Studio and Paradox Interactive will soon bring Crusader Kings Z to the masses, the fifth expansion to one of 2012’s most acclaimed strategy/RPG games and inspired by zombies.

    Crusader Kings Z adds a zombie invasion to the medieval Europe, as a way to make the Black Death come alive in a physical form. This is a world where gruesome death dominates Europe, when zombie armies pillaged towns and monasteries in their search for brains, slowly walking to wherever the promise of human flesh awaits them.

    Expanded gameplay mechanics will allow you as a player to become a zombie ruler, rallying your undead hordes throughout Europe or a Zombie Survivor fighting for your dynasty’s survival.

    Crusader Kings Z, the fifth expansion for the critically praised strategy/RPG, finally enables you to play as a Zombie ruler or a Zombie Survivor, with particular focus on the dreaded undead hordes and their tradition of pillage and devouring of flesh.

    Crusader Kings II explores one of the defining periods in world history in an experience crafted by Paradox Development Studio, the masters of Strategy. Medieval Europe comes to life and undeath in this game of knights, schemes and zombies.

    Crusader Kings Z will be available at All Hallows' Eve 2013,
    so prepare yourself for a terrifying new experience.


    Main Features:

    Two separate possibilities for gameplay: Zombie Ruler or Zombie Survivor

    Zombie Ruler
    • Play as a Zombie ruler and ravage your weak neighbors. If you remain at peace for too long, your undead will grow restless...
    • New gameplay feature: Devour your rivals and earn their traits through eating their brains
    • New gameplay mechanics: Use plagues to spread your influence and expand your undead armies
    • Your zombie ruler is strong, but plots may decapitate you or burn you at the stake, so be on your guard. Your heirs can only be chosen from the people you have infected personally, and not from anyone infected by your horde.

    Zombie Hunter
    • Experience a new and different type of game by playing as one of the great Zombie survivors
    • As the head of a Zombie Survivor family, you must guide your dynasty through a world infected by zombies
    • New seasonal effects will encourage you to expand to the northern parts of Europe where the winter will give you a breathing space for when zombies freeze
    • Build fortifications with dozens of unique new buildings and expand your empire by controlling the sea lanes and coasts of Europe since zombies have a hard time crossing waters…
    • Christians and Muslims can dispatch Holy Wars against the infected hordes.
    • Experience feuds with other survivors and plot to seize their supplies and beans; many special events for characters in Crusader Kings Z

    Crusader Kings Z also includes:
    • New dark Zombie interface skin.
    • Unique torn clothes and crude ship models created from whatever survivors can find in Crusader Kings Z

    This is either:

    1. A cruel, despicable april's fools joke of horrid proportions.
    2. A beautifully legitimate DLC that has been announced on a very convenient/inconvenient date that will tear the fanbase into itty bitty pieces.

    Please be two.

    The first moment I was like "Are they nuts? Aztecs and now this?" Then I remembered today is 1st April. Nice joke!

    April fools, no doubt.

    Still more realistic than Sunset Invasion!

    Looks really OP and according to wikipedia, ahistorical. I'm really upset that Paradox just applied Muslim decadence mechanics to zombie dynasties, just ridiculous...you should rather focus more of your time on the Papacy DLC to which we are entitled. Really upset at this move...this is why I play CKII Plus.

    Oh man, that would be a pretty fun expansion! Can't have too many fantasy alt-scenarios to change up the base game, especially after playing for hundreds of hours.

    Even if this is a pretty hilarious April Fools, I do hope that at least the quoted features will become real in the base game.

    I also hope this isn't an April Fools because after all we already got Sunset Invasion so Crusader Kings - Zombie Mode wouldn't be a far fetched idea at all. :P

    I would pre-order this right now for 20 bucks if it weren´t an april joke...
