Paradox have let loose the demo for their upcoming title in the Crusader Kings strategy series, Crusader Kings II. The demo offers players the chance to take up arms and fight for their kingdom as they battle other Christian Lords eager to take as much as they can.
Europe is in turmoil. The lands are fragmented into petty fiefs, the emperor struggles with the Pope, and the Holy Father declares that all those who go to liberate the Holy Land will be freed of their sins. Now is the time for greatness.

Increase your lands and fill your coffers, appoint vassals, battle traitors, introduce laws while interacting with hundreds of nobles, and create the most powerful dynasty of medieval Europe. A beleaguered king will always have friends to support him. But beware, as your rule and realm may find trouble when a loyal vassal becomes a bitter rival. Stand ready, increase your prestige, and listen to the world whisper your name in awe.
The Demo of the PC strategy/RPG Crusader Kings 2 allows you to play one of four different characters through 20 years of history. All single player capabilities as well as an extensive tutorial are included in the demo. There are no multiplayer capabilities however, and the ability to save & load have been disabled.

You can download the demo now from AusGamers locally by clicking here.

Check out the screenshots below detailing the game world, and let us know in the comments what your thoughts are of the demo.

This game is amazing. I urge everyone interested in strategy games to try out the demo. Like any good grand strategy game it does take a while to learn the ropes but the pay off is immense.
