What Are The Best Crusader Kings 2 Mods?

Paradox Interactive’s hit medieval strategy game Crusader Kings 2 may have released over four years ago, but amazing post-release support has made gamers’ favorite medieval murder simulator better than ever before. Their most recent expansion, Holy Fury, has left many fans of the series happy to resume their Viking conquest of the world, but some might be tired of the regular game. So what are some of the best Crusader Kings 2 mods out there right now? Please note: Some mods may not yet be updated to the most current version of the game, and may require an older patch.

15. Romance of the Three Kingdoms

14. Modern Times

13. When The World Stopped Making Sense

12. Sketchy Cheat Menu

Sketchy cheat menu mod Crusader Kings 2.

Sometimes you just gotta cheat, and Sketchy's mod is here for you.

When it comes to single player games, there’s nothing wrong with trying out some cheats and seeing what happens. But with many PC games, there aren’t very accessible methods for cheating, and this is where mod creator Sketchy’s appropriately named Sketchy Cheat Menu comes in. This mod lets you do practically anything, whether it’s increasing your gold, your character’s stats, or the size of your armies, so you can turn yourself from a minor count in France to emperor of the known world in no time. Sketchy Cheat Menu is available on the Steam Workshop here.

11. After The End

10. Historical and Fantastical Artifacts

Historical and Fantastical Artifacts mod Crusader Kings 2

Want to become King of the Britons? You might want the legendary Excalibur.

Previously, Paradox updated the game to allow characters to find and create interesting and powerful artifacts and items, like the Holy Grail. Unfortunately, the system was a little lacking, but this mod gives it a great boost. It includes a variety of historical and fantasy artifacts for your character to collect and grow more powerful, like the mythical sword Excalibur, or the sword of Attila the Hun. You can start questing for these artifacts here, or on the Steam Workshop.

9. Theatrum Orbis Terrarum

Theatrum Orbis Terrarum Crusader Kings 2 mod

Enter the Old World with this classical looking in-game map.

Some players may be looking for more subtle modifications to their game. Luckily, Crusader Kings 2 has a great number of graphical mods: Theatrum Orbis Terrarum is a beautiful mod for the game map that changes the appearance from a realistic geographical map to that of a handcrafted, written map. When playing like this, you can really imagine yourself as a feudal lord reviewing his personal map, deciding where to conquer next. Theatrum Orbis Terrarum can be found on the Steam Workshop.

8. The Middle Earth Project

7. Cultures and Portraits Revamped

Cultures and Portraits Revamped mod Crusader Kings 2

Cultures and Portraits Revamped will give Crusader Kings 2's characters a more handsome and fashionable look.

Cultures and Portraits Revamped is a graphical overhaul mod that changes many characters clothing and appearance based on their culture and region. As Crusader Kings 2 is a character based game, you’ll be spending quite a bit of time looking at faces and clothing, so why not make your King look a little bit more fashionable? While Paradox has recently committed to a much required rehaul to the appearance of some characters, many plays would say they prefer the work done in CPR over the vanilla presentation.  CPR can be found on the Crusader Kings 2 Steam Workshop.

6. Warhammer: Geheimnisnacht

5. Witcher Kings

4. CK2 Plus

3. Historical Immersion Project

2. Elder Kings

1. A Game of Thrones
