Paradox Interactive's Crusader Kings II Collection is available now for purchase from Mac Game Store. The compilation includes the original Crusader Kings II as well as every piece of downloadable content released for the game until May 2014, more than 40 DLCs. The historical strategy game gives players the chance to start a game at any point between 1066 and 1337 and play until 1453.

FORGE A DYNASTY TO RULE A KINGDOM

The Crusader Kings II collection explores one of the defining periods in world history in an experience crafted by the masters of Grand Strategy and comes complete with every piece of downloadable content from release until May 2014.

The Dark Ages might be drawing to a close, but Europe is still in turmoil. Petty lords vie against beleaguered kings who struggle to assert control over their fragmented realms. The Pope calls for a Crusade to protect the Christians in the Holy Land even as he refuses to relinquish control over the investiture of bishops - and their riches. Now is the time for greatness. Expand your demesne and secure the future of your dynasty. Fill your coffers, appoint vassals, root out traitors and heretics, introduce laws and interact with hundreds of nobles, each with their own agenda.

A good lord will always need friends to support him. But beware, as loyal vassals can quickly turn to bitter rivals, and some might not be as reliable as they seem... Stand ready, and increase your prestige until the world whispers your name in awe. Do you have what it takes to become a Crusader King?
