Crusader Kings II Trailer is Incredibly Awesome, Features Pirates

on February 17, 2012 2:30 PM

Not THOSE kind of pirates, the internet kind. Paradox Interactive has put out a new live-action trailer for the upcoming “grand strategy game” Crusader Kings II which re-enacts an “internal piracy discussion at Paradox”, if Paradox had existed in the middle ages that is. The noble king gathers his forces to capture the Swiss pirate “Downlow Ding of Gaems” and brings him to justice.

Paradox truly releases some amazing trailers and this one is no different. It reeks of B-Movie charm (down to the “actors” holding and visibly reading from their scripts) and is just rather enjoyable all around. Check it out after the break.
