Crusader Kings II: Songs of Yuletide DLC


God Jul and other Holiday Greetings from wintry Sweden! Paradox Development Studio wishes all of our fans a happy holiday with this gift of a Yuletide Carol for Crusader Kings II and Europa Universalis IV.

This carol, composed by the talented Andreas Waldetoft, brings two famous songs, Deck the Halls and Joy to the World, together with influences from the music of both Crusader Kings II and Europa Universalis IV.

Lyrics:


Storm the winter shores of England
Fa la la la la, la la la lan.
Loot and pillage with your warband
Fa la la la la, la la la lan.

Celebrate the glorious battle
Fa la la la la, la la la lan.
Troll the ancient Yule tide carol,
Fa la la la la, la la la lan.

In the blaze of London burning,
Fa la la la la, la la la lan.
Slay your foes and sing ‘til mornin,
Fa la la la la, la la la lan.

Follow me in this adventure,
Fa la la la la, la la la lan.
While I tell of gold and treasure,
Fa la la la la, la la la lan,

Far away on eastern beaches,
Fa la la la la, la la la lan.
We will find a home and riches,
Fa la la la la, la la la lan.

Off we norsemen sail together,
Fa la la la la, la la la lan.
Heedless of the wind and weather,
Fa la la la la, la la la lera.



Conquer the World, and rule its lands!
Let earth receive her King;
Let every soul, be guided by your hand.
Grand strategy is your game
Grand strategy is your game
Grand strategy, grand strategy is your game

Conquer the World, your rightful realm!
Lead men to victory!
Through fields and floods, rocks, hills and plains
Let slip the dogs of war
Let slip the dogs of war
Let slip, let slip, the dogs of war

You rule the world with might and grace,
And make your nation grow,
People and cultures, united by your hand,
A historical paradox
A historical paradox
A historical, ahistorical paradox.

Nice free DLC. Usually only noticeable in the month of December, but adds a cool atmosphere to the game.

So little and yet so awesome. I downloaded it a thousand years ago and it surprised me quite a bit when the music suddenly changed. It really puts you in the mood for Christmas. And... a free DLC from Paradox. That's just a dream come true. I truly never thought I'd see the day! Definitely get it and let the christmas spirit flow through your medieval europe :)

Really a fun song, adds to an already amazing soundtrack, and it's free. It only plays when it's Christmas in real life, though...I guess I'll leave it up to you to form an opinion on that part.

Bit expensive but if you have a free £0.00/$0.00 it is well worth getting in the relevent Holiday season!

Contains two songs that play on constant repeat for the entire month of December.

You might find it annoying, but when January comes, you'll miss it.

When it's December and you play Crusader Kings 2, this free DLC will definitely put you in a festive mood. If it wasn't free, I would happily pay for it. (btw also available for Europa Unversalis IV)

This is the first DLC I've regretted buying for Crusader Kings II, but to be fair I did not read exactly what it was when I bought it.

Its a song parody of "Deck the Halls" with the non-chorus lyrics changed to be about Vikings pillaging England. It does go all out on the holiday musical backing and booming singers, which may or may not be a selling point. Just be aware that even if you have all the music DLCs, if you play as a nation without another music DLC specifically tailored for it (such as the Celts, the Spanish, the French, etc.), you will be hearing this holiday parody song EVERY OTHER TRACK--even if you like song parodies there's a good chance it's gonna get old really quickly on near repeat!

But what the hell, it's free right?

Nothing says Christmas like brutally sacking Galilee while listening to the beautiful Deck the Halls. This DLC is well worth the price of zero dollars.

I will press yes at end of this due to it's 'price'.

But i wonder when Paradox will develop game without game-menu in it and u will be forced to download and pay for DLC which brings you one. O tempora! o mores!
