Newly released today is the latest expansion for Paradox Interactive's amazingly fun grand strategy game Crusader Kings II. Legacy of Rome concentrates on both the Byzantine Empire and Orthodox Church, expanding your range of options ever eastwards. New features include:

New Faction System: Join a royal faction and use your allies in the party to enhance your strength and tear down rivals

Raise Standing Armies: You will now be able to use retinues to have standing armies in your domain: the size of which is determined by technology

Experience Factional Revolts: No more easily defeated rebellions. Disgruntled vassals will now band together in revolt against your rule through their faction

Appoint Orthodox Patriarchs: Orthodox kingdoms and empires can now control their own heads of religion and their powers, instead of being dependent on the patriarch of Constantinople

Streamlined Mobilization: You will always raise a single, larger levy from your direct vassal; no need to worry about the opinions of the lower vassals

Leader Focus on Combat: Appoint your generals wisely, their traits and skills are now of vital importance on the field of battle. More commander traits are now added to increase the importance of your choice of military leaders

Byzantium Comes Alive: New sets of decisions and events specifically designed with the Byzantine Empire in mind

Improve your ruler: You can now actively strive to improve your skills or traits through the new Self-Improvement Ambitions

In addition to this, Paradox Interactive and Paradox Development Studios have released patch 1.07 AND four new DLC for Crusader Kings II to celebrate the release of Legacy of Rome:
