Crusader Kings III, Paradox Interactive's latest entry in their grand strategy role-playing game franchise is now available for purchase via Steam and the Paradox Store.
Paradox Interactive have announced the launch of Crusader Kings III, the latest entry in the publisher’s grand strategy role-playing game series.
The players will get a chance to lead a royal house through history, governing land, culture, religion, military operations and more. You can choose to scheme from the shadows or openly march on your enemies to expand your borders, employ diplomacy and family, leveraging relationships and influence, to preserve your lineage.
Crusader Kings III features
- A Tale of Lords and Lineage: Every character has their own history and personality traits which are reflected in their portraits and the decisions they make. Events and options in the game are largely determined by the type of lord you play as, and the personalities of others must be utilised in the right ways to achieve your goals.
- Wide and Varied Lands: With a map ranging from Europe to Africa, Asia, and the Indian subcontinent, you can assume the role of a noble house from nearly any culture. From the Vikings of Scandinavia to the tribes of Africa and the hordes of the Asian Steppe.
- A Truly Noble Life: Enjoy a rich tapestry of courtly medieval life - court spouses, hire counsellors, and raise armies. Entertain wandering guests, cultivate the ideal heir to cement your line, and send your more troublesome offspring off to foster elsewhere. Set spymasters to scheming and pit neighbouring houses against one another.
- Lineage Management: The spawn of your royal union is both the future of your house and a resource for achieving greater power. Use them to forge alliances in far off lands and press claims on sought-after realms, spreading your influence to the corners of the known world.
- Disputes Solved by the Sword: When diplomacy has run its course take what should be yours by rallying your vassals and calling your men-at-arms. Crushing rebellions and laying siege to enemy castles can prove a quick path to honour.
- Statecraft From The Shadows: Sometimes a scheme, the most subtle of diplomacy, is the most effective - a knife in the dark, a secret to be leveraged, a spouse seduced.
- Saints and Sinners: Set the religious course of your kingdom, whether that be keeping the faith or embracing a heresy to better align with your goals. If all else fails, you can start your own religion.
- And More Medieval Menagerie: Holy Orders, crusades, peasant revolts, mercenaries for hire, Northmen raiders, customizable rule sets and a beautiful new map.
