Elder Kings 2 is set during the chaotic period of the Second Era’s interregnum (roughly a thousand years before The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim). Players can take an active part in the four-hundred-year struggle for what remains of the Empire.

Elder Kings 2 adds a detailed map of Tamriel (including the continent of Yokuda) that is two-thirds the size of the original Crusader Kings III. In depicting the world of the Scrolls, the authors drew on official sources and popular fan interpretations.

Along with the setting, Elder Kings 2 brings the main races of Tamriel to Crusader Kings III, with 3D models (all playable) and the ability (for humans, elves and orcs) to produce mixed offspring.

In terms of gameplay, Elder Kings 2 touches on several original systems and adds a number of thematic ones: origin influence system, tutelary deities, magic schools, vampirism, new forms of government.

Similar mods – Elderly Kings – released once for Crusader Kings II, and Elder Kings 2 is its sequel, not a direct port. This explains the lack of some features of the old iteration in the new iteration (it is promised that they will be added with patches).

The release of Elder Kings 2 coincides with the 11th anniversary of Skyrim’s release. You can download the mod from steam and Nexus Mods. DLC (especially Royal Court) is not required but brings unique content. Multiplayer is available (needs to be tested).
