Hi everyone,

Today we’re announcing that we’re in the midst of developing something new for Crusader Kings II, a project that will allow you to get even deeper into the role-playing aspects of the game. Way of Life, the next DLC for CK2, will let you become a better (or worse!) ruler and grant you more power over personal relationships than ever before.

Sure, it’s nice to have someone cozy up to you and be your lover while you’re sitting atop the throne, but what if you could choose who to seduce? Or, after getting into that relationship on the side, what if you discover that you just need some space and had a way to break it off? You know, without having your soon-to-be ex-lover assassinated. These things and much more, including hundreds of new events, are coming to Way of Life.

With every piece of DLC, we always issue a patch for the vanilla game that allows everyone to take advantage of the changes being made to CK2, and this will be no different EXCEPT this particular time we’re asking for your assistance by helping us test out the patch ahead of the launch of Way of Life. The beta test will begin next week and we’ll have more details on how to fabricate a claim to beta test soon, so be on the lookout.

At last Paradox!! this was a much needed move. Let's do the beta testing before paying for the software instead the other way around. This will save everybody's time and mental sanity, imho.

As a sidenote, looks like something good came from the CM fiasco. It is wise to get lessons from the defeat.

Will "way of life" also cover cultural/religious events and expansion on those aspects of medieval life? I think this is an area equally untapped into(except norse/catholics) and would be a great addition to an expansion on the social elements of the game. Like new events for all religions, new unique aspects of religions, unique buildings, cultural buildings/events etc.

This part is music to my ears, though. (Eyes?)

Interesting, but I'm not yet hooked on the idea. I'll be interested to see who is wanted for the beta.

Also, please implement cadet branches in this one.
