Paradox Interactive on Tuesday, September 01, 2020 released the trailer:
Crusader Kings III - Release Trailer.
The game, like its predecessors Crusader Kings and Crusader Kings II, is a grand strategy game and dynasty simulator set in the Middle Ages, players can start in either 867 or 1066 and play until 1453. Dynasties can form cadet branches that have their own heads and act mostly independently from their parent dynasty. The heads of dynasties will be able to use a new resource known as Renown to assert their control over their house. For example, the heads of dynasties are responsible for legitimizing bastards.
Characters have full-body, 3D-rendered character models instead of 2D portraits. As in Crusader Kings II, they have traits that affect their stats and behavior. Taking choices that go against a character's traits will increase that character's stress. The game's genetics system allows characters to pass on some of their characteristics to their descendants. Characters are able to frighten their vassals into staying loyal by increasing their Dread, which increases when the character performs malevolent actions, such as executing or torturing other characters. Characters are able to select one of five lifestyles to follow. Each lifestyle has three skill trees that allow characters to enhance skills related to that lifestyle.
All religions and almost all government types are playable, though Merchant republics and theocracies were not playable at launch. Most leaders in the game adhere to the feudal, tribal, or clan government types. Nomads are portrayed as tribal instead of having their own government type. Religions have Tenets, which are bonuses given to all practitioners of that faith, and Doctrines, which deal with the church's stances towards issues like homosexuality and female clergy. Players will be able to develop their own heresies, with the Tenets and Doctrines being chosen by the player. The more a heresy deviates from its original faith, the more Piety it will cost to create it.
"Crusader Kings III" was scheduled to be released on September 1, 2020 and on September 7, 2020 by Paradox Interactive.
It is a single-player and multiplayer video game.
The game is made with Clausewitz Engine engine.
