Ruler Designer Video For Crusader Kings II

on March 31, 2012 12:54 PM

If you can’t get your fill of thirteenth century mayhem from watching Game of Thrones or making repeat visits to Medieval Times, then Paradox Interactive is here to put you in the driver’s seat of your own political intrigue mobile with its new Ruler Designer for Crusader Kings II. I realize my metaphor kind of fell apart at the end there, but bear with me: the designer is actually pretty good.

Using the new Ruler Designer, players may edit details of an existing political figure, or create his or her own monarch complete with a unique coat of arms, character stats, and even the size of his or her immediate family — sort of like a cross between Civilization and The Sims. The Ruler Designer drops for digital download April 17th, with a price tag of $4.99. Hit up the break for a video demonstration!

Sto Austin is the man. Period. When not saving the world from the next generation of Metal Gears or throwing hadoukens at his detractors, chances are he's writing about someone else doing something similarly epic, possibly whilst smoking a cigar. He enjoys games with a strong emphasis on story, which typically fall into the RPG, Action/Adventure, or Horror genres, though he also has a soft spot for fighting games and has been known, when feeling saucy, to shred on some Guitar Hero or Rock Band. He currently divides his time between Florida and Maine, tromping up and down the East coast according to the whims of fate and fortune.
