Official Description (Ad Blurb)

Paradox Development Studio brings you the sequel to one of the most popular strategy games ever made. Crusader Kings III is the heir to a long legacy of historical grand strategy experiences and arrives with a host of new ways to ensure the success of your royal house.

* Choose a royal or noble house from a number of realms on a map that stretches from Iceland to India, from the Arctic Circle to Central Africa. * Guide a dynasty through the centuries, ensuring the security and power of each new generation. Gather new lands and titles to cement your legacy. * Be a pious king to bring the religious powers to your side, or strike out on your own, designing your own splinter religion and earning everlasting fame or eternal damnation. * Knights, peasant revolts, pilgrimages, Viking raiders...experience the drama and pageantry of the Middle Ages.

* Adopt one of five different lifestyles, perfecting your skills in military strategy or kingdom management. * Acquire character traits that will guide your actions, but beware if you act against your nature! The stress from denying your truest self could bring a new host of troubles! * Choose appropriate guardians for your heirs, or train them yourself. But what do you do if the legal heir is not quite up to the job? * Violent characters may develop a fearsome reputation, cowering your timid subjects into obedience with the dread you inspire.

* Recruit man-at-arms units and powerful knights to supplement your royal levies. * Research new technologies to increase the wealth and military might of your realm. * Hire mercenaries and Holy Orders for your major wars. * Supplement your income with ransomed prisoners or raiding parties on neighboring realms.

* Use your spymaster to discover plots against your dynasty and your rule. * Recruit agents to assist your schemes to undermine or murder anyone who stands between you and power. * Seduce other characters for love or political power. * Gather information for blackmailing purposes or call in favors whenever your plans need an extra bit of influence.
