Crusader Kings II: The Reaper's Due Announced
New Expansion Coming Soon, Gamebook Available Now

Published: July 15, 2016 3:44:00 PM CEST

STOCKHOLM – 21 July 2016 – Little remains of those settlements where the Black Death has passed through. Hasty burials make a mockery of the sacraments and set a feast for the crows. Once prosperous provinces have been laid waste, and the lord of the land hides away – secluded in his hilltop fortress, hoping the plague will pass him by. Wiser princes took precautions, and didn’t waste the revenues from more prosperous years.

But, in time, all must pay The Reaper’s Due.

The Reaper’s Due is the newest expansion for Crusader Kings II, the best-selling medieval strategy simulator from Paradox Development Studio. This expansion highlights the historic importance of epidemics and disease in the Middle Ages, especially the Black Death – an outbreak of the bubonic plague that may have killed a third of the population of Europe.


The Reaper’s Due introduces many new systems and features to what is already the richest medieval tapestry in gaming:
Epidemics Improved: As diseases spread from province to province along trade and sea lanes, they lower your manpower and sap your wealth
Hospitals and Royal Physicians: Prevent the outbreak of disease in your kingdom, and make sure your courtiers have access to the latest in Dark Ages Medical Science
Prosperity and Royal Focus: Well managed provinces in peaceful kingdoms will pay huge dividends in gold and levies
Seclusion: Shield yourself from the diseases tearing your kingdom apart, even if it means ignoring the plight of your people
New Event Chains: Is the new epidemic the End of Days? Is there someone else to blame for these horrors? Are there supernatural origins or solutions to the world’s problems?

To help you pass the time until release, Paradox is happy to announce the release of a Crusader Kings II gamebook.Crusader Kings: Chronicles is a mobile interactive adventure from M. Harold Page set in the tumult of the Black Death as it ravages England. Crusader Kings: Chronicles is available now on iTunes and Google Play. Full FAQ available here.

The fact that you made a announce of dlc about death while paradox is a desert because people are holidays fit too well to be coincidence...

Chances of this getting answered are next to nil, but curious if the delay in releasing the name was that they tried to go for "Devil's Due" and had the lawyers check in to if that'd be fine or not (and it wasn't)

So probably August 25th.
