This game kind of gives you that feeling of paradox mixed with a little total war. Since its not turn based everything is happening in real time, over a huge map but you also get to control hundreds of units by the looks of things. So it's a really interesting mix. I prefer Crusader Kings emphasis on role playing a leader and raising a dynasty. But I can imagine a lot of Total War fans deciding to give this game a spin.
I think it looks pretty awesome. For those that are unfamiliar its a grand strategy game. Think civilization but much more granular. In a nutshell you play as a nobleman(In most cases) and are the head of a family. You can get married, marry off your offspring, make alliances, wage war, etc. The unique thing about Crusader Kings you don't just make broad decisions. That affect the country and nobody else. Instead every decision you make affects how other nobles see you. And overtime as you make small decisions you begin to craft your own personal story. So in affect every game can be drastically different. IGN gave Crusader Kings 3 a 10 out of 10 which is really impressive. The game is made by paradox interactive. I've spent tons of hours in Crusader Kings 2. So I'm very glad to see that they released a sequel finally! I will admit that their has traditionally been a steep learning curve. But learning how to play, and discovering what tactics work is part of the fun. One thing about their games is that they add a lot of DLC. Some people like that aspect of it as it ensures you are constantly getting additional content and others are not very big on the business model. For me personally, I've found that most of the major DLC almost always seems to add some additional functionality to the game and I love that. I haven't purchased the game yet. But I will eventually. Perhaps once they release some more DLC. If you wait long enough they tend to run some discounts. The RPG elements of the game seem to have been taken up a notch. And of course the visuals are way better than Crusader Kings 2. One of the biggest gripes most new people have regarding the Crusader Kings series is accessibility and visual presentation. The gameplay has always been there. Now, it seems like they are really making an effort to update the user interface. So yeah if you hadn't heard about Crusader Kings before now you have!😁 Crusader Kings 3 Official Trailer IGN Crusader Kings 3 Review Video Have you ever played Crusader Kings?
