Crusader Kings 2's Holy Fury DLC Will Introduce Legendary Bloodlines

Crusader Kings 2's Holy Fury DLC Will Introduce Legendary Bloodlines

Update: Paradox Interactive has announced the release date for Holy Fury. November 13th, 2018 is the date you;re waiting for. Read the announcement here.

Are people born in great families destined for greatness? With Crusader Kings II's 15th DLC, Holy Fury, they probably do. One of the features Holy Fury adds is Legendary Bloodlines.

Detailed in a recent Dev Diary, Paradox Interactive wrote that characters that are from Legendary Bloodlines, gain some bonus modifiers. These modifiers depend on the founder of the bloodline or the first legendary leader that began the Legendary Bloodline.

Legendary Bloodline modifiers don't seem too overpowered. The bonuses impart small bonuses that offers your characters a slight advantage.

So you can expect characters from the Legendary Bloodline of say Genghis Khan to have a boost to their Martial abilities (Martial is a stat that governs how well they lead troops in a war).L

However, not everyone related to a Legendary Bloodline receives the modifiers. According to Paradox, children from a patrilineal or matrilineal marriage gets the Legendary Bloodline transferred to them depending on who is the dominant parent in the marriage.

In essence, making the whole of Europe your own Legendary Bloodline would be pretty difficult, but not impossible. I'd like to see somebody try it though when the DLC is released.

Those are some big names there.

How do these Legendary Bloodlines exist? Well, there are historical Legendary Bloodlines. The ones that begin right at the start of the game. Or the ones that depend on a certain outcome.

If William The Conqueror succeeds in his mission to take control of England, then he becomes the founder of a Legendary Bloodline. Paradox also teased that there are other ways of getting a Legendary Bloodline, which they will reveal at a later date.

My guess is that you'll be given the option of founding a Legendary Bloodline if you accomplish a certain goal. Perhaps it will be in the form of an ambition? 

Paradox Interactive hasn't announced the release date for this Crusader Kings II expansion. But it definitely looks like it's destined to be out in the next couple of months. Stay tuned for more information on the Holy Fury DLC.
