- Cults: Heretical cults may flourish and its is rumored that the worship of Satan continues in the darkened fringes of the world
- Climb the Ranks: Characters work their way up the ladder of Societies, unlocking new abilities and triggering new event chains
- Hunt for Heretics: Send your chaplain out to find secret societies that undermine the holy church and your realm. But what if the hunter is guilty himself?
- Other New Councillor Actions: Your councillors have a fourth action that will make them more powerful and integral to sound rulership

But I gave up on Paradox games for their awful unscalable UI -- try playing CK2 in 4K, you'll go blind reading the tiny fonts. It's fallen on the community to create mods for such a simple thing as UI scaling!!! Paradox doesn't seem to care one whit about this long standing issue, that they know about.

So, I'm not buying anymore their games until they do something about it.

Yes, but they have been launching their games on Linux, day 1, with the same quality as their windows version! I think that's reason enough to at least consider supporting them.

I've stopped playing CK2 and now I'll have to start again - will get it as soon as it's out!

The fonts still aren't antialiased on the Linux build. And the textures are lowres on the Linux build. Try it on WINE to see the difference. On a high res display the difference means that the Linux version is unplayable.
I submitted multiple bug reports about the issue, but they were all ignored.

I would be interested in seeing comparison screenshots.
