The Reaper’s Due DLC for Crusader Kings II

Little remains of those settlements where the Black Death has passed through. Hasty burials make a mockery of the sacraments and set a feast for the crows.

Once prosperous provinces have been laid waste, and the lord of the land hides away – secluded in his hilltop fortress, hoping the plague will pass him by.

Wiser princes took precautions, and didn’t waste the revenues from more prosperous years. But, in time, all must pay The Reaper’s Due.

The Reaper’s Due adds a host of new mechanics centered on the Black Death and other world shaping epidemics. Lock your gates to keep the plague from infecting your court, even if it means cutting yourself off from your suffering citizens.

Peace and good management will see your provinces reward you with greater wealth and manpower, but constant war and disease may depopulate your countryside.

The Reaper’s Due introduces many new systems and features to what is already the richest medieval tapestry in gaming:

The Black Death

New additions to epidemic system include this super destructive disease and a new map mode that track the expansion of deadly illnesses.

Court Physicians

This new position for learned courtiers opens up a series of events tied to the diagnosis and treatment of diseases with medieval tech.

Hospitals

Slow down the spread of epidemics by investing in these outposts that care for the sick and infirm.

Prosperity and Depopulation

Watch your provinces thrive under your careful attention and degrade under the pressures of diseases run amok.

Seclusion

Take a page from the Masque of the Red Death and hide yourself away with your court as plagues ravage the countryside.

And even more

New physical traits, new events chains and a host of smaller changes.

Vampire Bloodlines 2 – First Ray Tracing Trailer + Showcase!

Vampire : The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 is set for release next year, but we can now share with you the first ray tracing trailer and showcase!

 

Vampire : The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2

Vampire : The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 is the highly anticipated sequel to the 2004 vampire-themed RPG, that is slated to be released in April 2020.

At Gamescom 2019, Paradox announced their partnership with NVIDIA to introduce real-time ray tracing to Vampire : The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2.

In addition, they will also introduce DLSS, which would allow gamers to use higher resolutions and image quality, while enjoying fast and smooth frame rates.

 

The First Bloodlines 2 Ray Tracing Trailer

This is the first Bloodlines 2 ray tracing trailer, unveiled at Gamescom 2019 by Paradox and NVIDIA.

According to NVIDIA, all suitable surfaces will accurately reflect surrounding detail in real-time. The look of each reflection is determined by the properties of the material on the affected object or surface.

In the case of windows, reflections have full transparency, enabling you to see detail beyond the glass, as well as the reflection itself, as in the real world.

Here’s the extended Bloodlines 2 game trailer, without real-time ray tracing…
