Paradox Interactive has officially revealed Crusader Kings III, the next Grand Strategy from Paradox Development Studios and successor to 2012’s incredibly popular Crusader Kings II. 

With this release, the Crusader Kings series will be updated with modern graphics, new gameplay mechanics and the promise of new RPG mechanics and dynastic machinations.

The game is due to release on Steam and on Xbox Game Pass some time in 2020. To celebrate this reveal, Crusader Kings II has been made free-to-play, and the game’s DLC pricing has been reduced. 

Crusader Kings III has been revealed for Windows PC, macOS and Linux. Those who sign up for the official Crusader Kings newsletter can unlock Crusader Kings’ The Old Gods expansion for free. You can learn more about Crusader Kings 3 here. 

    Crusader Kings III is the newest generation of Paradox Development Studio’s beloved medieval role-playing grand strategy game. Expand and improve your realm, whether a mighty kingdom or modest county. Use marriage, diplomacy and war to increase your power and prestige in a meticulously detailed map that stretches from Spain to India, Scandinavia to Central Africa.

But uneasy lies the head that wears a crown! Your cunning is your greatest weapon, and intelligence is the key to all successful strategy. Guard your life and the future of your dynasty, because enemies foreign and domestic envy your status. Engage in espionage, join political factions, punish heretics or use assassins to make sure your throne passes safely to the next generation.
