Crusader Kings III is the sequel to the classic Paradox Development Studio game about medieval conquest, and religion, and after seven years, it was about time.
It is a firm step in the direction of a new generation of grand strategy games, with new 3D character models and an even more detailed map. Designed to enhance the experience of Paradox veterans while being more welcoming to first timers, Crusader Kings III is a rich setting for an infinite number of new stories.
Crusader Kings III will arrive in 2020, available for PC via Steam and included in Xbox Game Pass for PC.
“Crusader Kings III is a grand medieval simulator where you are free to live out any plausible ruler fantasy that we could think of - but not without challenge.” says Henrik Fåhraeus, the Game Director. “Seeing its predecessor explode in popularity was very satisfying, especially considering that user friendliness was never our primary goal. Now we have a chance to address an even larger audience.”
More details about the features of Crusader Kings III are expected in the next few months.
Paradox Development Studios also announced that the base game of Crusader Kings II is now free on all platforms where it can be purchased. CK2 players can also join The Monarch’s Journey, a series of custom challenges for the game that will unlock in-game rewards upon completion.
