NEW YORK– January 15, 2013– They say that blood and business should never mix. They are wrong. Paradox Interactive and Paradox Development Studios welcome you to the family as they proudly announce Crusader Kings II: The Republic, the third expansion for the critically acclaimed Strategy RPG classic.
Crusader Kings II: The Republic introduces the great merchant Republics of medieval Europe as playable entities for the first time. A fresh, new experience from playing as a feudal region in Crusader Kings II, players adopt the role as the head, or Patrician, of one of the five great merchant families in the Republic as they build trade posts and expand provincial empires while attempting to assert dominance over the other rival families, Republics and feudal lords.
