About This Content

The second expansion for the critically praised strategy-RPG Crusader Kings II focuses on the Byzantine Empire. In the rich political world of Byzantium, the vassals have been scheming. They have split into factions and they are banding together to revolt against your rule.

Legacy of Rome contains a wealth of new features to outsmart them and maintain your empire. The finals breaths of the Roman Empire are in your hands!

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

Key Features:

  • Explore the Intricate Faction System: Join a faction to put pressure on your liege and to keep track of factions in your own realm
  • Raise Standing Armies: You will now be able to use retinues to have standing armies in your domain. The size is determined by technology
  • Experience Factional Revolts: No more easily defeated rebellions. Disgruntled vassals will now band together in revolt against your rule
  • Appoint Orthodox Patriarchs: Orthodox kingdoms and empires can now control their own heads of religion instead of being dependent on the patriarch of Constantinople
  • Streamlined Mobilization: You will always raise a single, larger levy from your direct vassal; no need to worry about the opinions of the lower vassals
  • Leader Focus: Appoint your generals wisely, their traits & skills are now of vital importance on the field of battle. More commander traits are now added to increase the importance of your choice of military leaders
  • Explore Byzantine Events & Decisions: Legacy of Rome includes many specific events & decisions to make the Byzantine Empire come alive
  • Improve Your Ruler: You can now actively strive to improve your skills or traits through the new Self Improvement Ambitions

A must-have if you like playing the Byzantines. Has a bunch of great Byzantine decisions and events, plus you get to castrate and blind your enemies. This being CK2, it doesn't limit your savagery - you can blind infants, and lop off baby boys' little weenies if that strikes your fancy (though the game does call you out for being a "real piece of work"). Even if you don't play the Byzantines, it's worth it for just the retinues - they do dilute the feudal aspect of the game somewhat, but it's a great way to make your battles more interesting than "throw the biggest amount of troops at enemy".

One of the essential CK2 DLCs, in my opinion.

If you own CK2 you must buy this DLC.
Retinues, bonus to playing Byzantium, ambitions that grow your stats to minimum of 8. (try ruling witha 0 dip/0 steward ruler)
Without factions rebellions are a joke

A DLC that is overpriced, but makes the game easier with retinues.
If you are interested in the Byzantine Empire than this is for you.
6/10

Unlike Sword of Islam, Legacy of Rome adds a bit more than just some enhancements to a cultural group (in this case, the Byzantines and Orthodox countries). As it had better, since those countries were playable in the vanilla game, though most of the "new features" listed below were patched into the vanilla game as well. So is it worth it? Ehh... that depends on how much you care about playing characters from these areas. Though this DLC does add some... interesting new options for cruel characters who have some people in their jail. Dig through my screenshots and you will find one that shows this off. "He had it coming." ;)

If your buying this DLC you should now that Retinues have been nerfed in a the recent patch and are basically useless.

Don't waste your money.
