The Dark Ages might be drawing to a close, but Europe is still in turmoil. Petty lords vie against beleaguered kings who struggle to assert control over their fragmented realms. The Pope calls for a Crusade to protect the Christians in the Holy Land even as he refuses to relinquish control over the investiture of bishops - and their riches. Now is the time for greatness. Expand your demesne and secure the future of your dynasty. Fill your coffers, appoint vassals, root out traitors and heretics, introduce laws and interact with hundreds of nobles, each with their own agenda.
A good lord will always need friends to support him. But beware, as loyal vassals can quickly turn to bitter rivals, and some might not be as reliable as they seem... Stand ready, and increase your prestige until the world whispers your name in awe. Do you have what it takes to become a Crusader King?
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...

Key features:
  • Start a game at any point between 1066 and 1337 and play until 1453
  • Pick a Christian lord and make sure his dynasty survives as you play a succession of his descendants through the ages
  • Gain Prestige for every successive character you play, furthering the glory of your Dynasty
  • Expand your feudal domain - and keep it from falling apart
  • Unravel the plots of your courtiers and vassals, each with their own opinions and agendas
  • Take up the Cross and fight the Moor, the Heathen and the Heretic.
  • Defend against the onslaught of the Mongol Horde
  • Struggle with the Pope for control of the bishops
  • Relive the Middle Ages with up to 32 other players in a competitive multiplayer mode

    That is correct but it was added to GOG today as part of Paradox Interactive promo, hence the post:

    Takes ages to really learn as so much depth but yes every play through is an adventure story of true quality. Very engaging. Just lost to much sleep playing. Would be on this if hadn't started of Rimworld for something different.

    I wouldn't say this is the best game I played as I am an old time gamer but it's definitely in the top 10. Once you learn the game mechanics, it's really fun and interesting to play.
    As an immigrant here in the UK, I have learnt so much about the country in this game starting in 769 as the Earl of Reading and creating Britannia Empire vassalizing most of North Europe and swallowing France before they become a nuisance.
    Highly recommended. As far as I read online, this is still deeper than CK3 but I did not dare to switch yet.

    Is C. K. II still good?

    Hell Yes!
    I'd argue that it's the best game Paradox have released!

    Bargain! Showing £232.50 for me on Steam, or £177.91 as a discounted bundle!

    Fantastic game! This, with maybe 2 dlc's I have, is still something great to come back from time to time. On the other hand - the base game has been free on Steam for few years now

    very steep learning curve on this one.

    worth it, but the time investment needed is significant
