Popular games always see expanstions like this.

In the latest developer diary entry for Vae Victis, details have emerged regarding the monarchies in the upcoming expansion pack for the grand strategy title Europa Universalis: Rome.

In Vae Victis, the ruling monarchy relies on a council that consists of five technology magistrates and ministers to advise on all governmental affairs. However, your council is not to be trusted according to Henrik Fåhréus, Lead Game Designer of Vae Victis: “The ministers are important since their skills affect your country in many ways. If managed right, their bonuses will equal or surpass that of the ruling party in a republic. However, it can be dangerous to appoint your most skilled characters to the council since some may favour themselves, a relative, or even a friend, rather than the legal heir. Thus, when the king dies, or possibly before - if a majority of the council is unhappy with the legal heir - they may decide to back a pretender and spark a civil war.”
