About This Content

Europe is in turmoil. The lands are fragmented into petty fiefs, the emperor struggles with the Pope, and the Holy Father declares that all those who go to liberate the Holy Land will be freed of their sins. Now is the time for greatness!

The first expansion, Crusader Kings II: Sword of Islam, will add playable Muslim rulers to the game.

Crusader Kings II explores one of the defining periods in world history in an experience crafted by the masters of Grand Strategy. Medieval Europe is brought to life in this epic game of knights, schemes, and thrones.

"The Ummah is under attack. All true Muslims must be charitable in peace and relentless in Jihad. Let the Sword of Islam fall upon the infidels that threaten our lands, our faith!"

Key Features:

  • Muslim rulers now playable
  • Updated interface for playable Muslims characters
  • Unlocks more than 20 features in the game

One of the larger & more interesting DLCs for CKII. If you're just starting out with expanding, I'd go with this one and The Old Gods. Both really expand on Europe's big medieval rivals to the North and South.

Just a note to people new to the game, CKII DLC doesn't "unlock" features from the original release. Most of this content was added long after release, and Paradox releases it as part of a free patch so everyone's game is on the same page. If you've patched, then the AI is using most of the new features & content. If *you* want to use it, you'll need the DLC. For example, if you don't want to play a Merchant Republic, you can skip The Republic and your game won't be "incomplete".

With this DLC, i now no longer feel the need to fly to Syria and join ISIL; I now can wage glorious jihad from the comfort of my very own basement. I give it 11/10 Muhammed-points.

Allahu ackbar!
