Pagans have more fun. That’s the lesson to be learned from Paradox Interactive’s latest expansion, Crusader Kings II: The Old Gods. For the first time in the series you can play as the heathen Norsemen, along with assorted other pagan infidels across Europe and the East. It’s an addition that increases the player’s options to a truly staggering degree. Now it’s possible to jump in as pretty much any country and culture you can see on the world map, and each has a vastly different feel. While previous expansions focused on the economic powers of the Mediterranean, or the cultured Muslim states, The Old Gods encourages a more direct approach.
