It’s not ready to play just yet, but The Elder Kings 2 – a total conversion mod for Crusader Kings III set in the world of The Elder Scrolls – is already looking amazing. It’s a vast and complex mod that, like its predecessor, adds new systems to Paradox’s grand strategy game and overhauls the map. The result is pretty spectacular, especially if you’ve ever thought of ruling Skyrim as the high king.
The first thing you’ll likely notice is the brand new map, and it comes in both the close-in terrain variety and the zoomed-out paper map form. Both are gorgeous recreations of Nirn, and the mod team has been busily populating it with upgradeable landmarks and unique settlements. But The Elder Kings 2 is far more than just a new map for Crusader Kings III.
Religion played an important role in original Elder Kings mod for Crusader Kings II, and it’s only gotten more complex and important in the next version. Here you’ll not only be able to take on the patronage of one of the many aedra and daedra, you’ll also be able to create your own new pantheons of deities to serve your purposes.
