Check out the trailer below.
The new campaign focuses on the historic battles between the European Crusaders and the Muslim resistance in the area. Players will be able to follow the stories of well-known Muslim leaders throughout their battles against the Crusaders.
Alongside the host of new content coming to the game, The Sultans Ascend will also bring with it four new variant civilizations that can be played.
