Horse Lords, the next expansion for the ever-expanding Crusader Kings 2, has been given a release date of 14 July. As you can probably guess from the name, this one has a direct focus on the “Mongol and Turkic invaders of the Central Asian plains.”
Those who steppe up to play this will find a new expanded map of the Central Asian plains and new ruling mechanics for the nomadic horse tribes. In addition to that, Horse Lords will introduce the Silk Road trade route to Crusader Kings 2 (something everybody can benefit from,) and allow the creation of temporary forts in recently taken territories. Changes to the way players interact with the game from nomadic forms of governance and succession are also being included to fit with the theme of the expansion.
