It is the late 13th century and Europe is still reeling from the shock of the all-conquering Mongol Hordes. But, just as the lords of the West breathe a sigh of relief, another threat looms on the horizon; literally. Strange ships have been sighted all along the Atlantic coast, bearing symbols never before seen in the known world; winged serpents and grinning skulls. As the sun sets on the shores of Morocco, Portugal and Ireland, the largest fleet that has ever set sail approaches land, ready to invade in the name of bloodthirsty gods...

For the first time ever, Paradox Development Studio is introducing a fantasy scenario in their strategy games with the Crusader Kings II: Sunset Invasion DLC for the critically praised strategy/RPG Crusader Kings II. It is a fantasy scenario where the blood drenched Aztec Civilization arose early and spread like a virulent plague, learning of Europe from exploring Northmen. Prepare to defend all you hold dear against the Sunset Invasion!

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

  • A new invading threat arrives at a random point in the mid to late game, conquering from the West.
  • Unique new portraits, on-map shields and units for the great Mesoamerican Menace.
  • Cower in fear of the Aztec gods: New Aztec culture and religion.
  • Human Sacrifice! When a province is lost, no one is safe from the threat of losing their hearts on the obsidian altars.
  • Survive the terrible disease brought by the pagan oppressors: A new plague from across the Ocean

We are proud to announce the full release of A.D. 633: Rise of Islam for CK2 2.8.x (Jade Dragon).

Updates

  • Compatibility with Jade Dragon, along with enhanced compatibility with future versions of Crusader Kings II.
  • More true historical characters in some areas (Visigoth Spain, for instance) after meticulous research of new sources
  • Inclusion of the Tibetan Plateau, with ancient realms such as the proto- Tibetan Empire, Zhangzhung, and the Tuyuhun kingdom
  • A unique new historical event chain involving Bavarians and Bolghars
  • Slight modifications to the early Islamic invasions
  • Minor bugfixes

Main Features

For those who are new to the mod:

A.D. 633: Rise of Islam extends the timeline of CK2 by 136 years. Islam has not yet spread beyond the Arabian Peninsula, but the Arab tribes are numerous and zealous to fight for their new faith. Remnants of paganism remain in England and East Africa, and many nomadic tribes have yet to settle down. 633 is truly an exciting time for mankind. Included are:

  • Rise of Islam events and characters
  • New Cultures, including Syriac, Coptic, Latin Maghreb, and Ostrogothic
  • New Religions: Cushitic, East African pagans in Ethiopia and Somalia; Reformed Hellenic, complete with playable religious head; and Arian, an early Christian heresy
  • New de jure system for some tribal areas: no unrealistic de jure kingdoms and empires. Instead, easier to create custom kingdoms in these areas
  • Germanic Anglo-Saxon tribes in Britain
  • Reassigned names and de jure areas for some titles, including Illyria, Dacia, Cantabria, Neustria, Austrasia, and more
  • Flourishing Zoroastrianism in the Sassanid Persian Empire
  • More Jewish characters, including a Sephardi Jewish count as a Roman vassal in Palestine
  • Scripted events for the development of early Islam
