Games publisher Paradox Interacive have announced a new expansion for their RPG strategy title 'Crusader Kings II'. The forthcoming expansion, titled Crusader Kings II: The Old Gods, will add a number of widely requested features to the game, including the ability to play as a Pagan or Zoroastrian ruler, expanding empires through war, pillaging, and ruthless brutality. Players will also be able to begin their in-game reign as far back as the year 867 AD, making The Old Gods officially the Paradox title that spans the longest period in history.

In the East, Rurik founded the state of Russia, and in the forests and steppes of central Europe, pagan tribes were on the move...
