Medieval grand strategy dynasty sim Crusader Kings 3 launches tomorrow, September 1 – here’s what the critics think of the game so far.
Developed by Paradox Interactive, Crusader Kings 3 is the highly-anticipated follow-up to critically-acclaimed strategy titles Crusader Kings and Crusader Kings 2.
It takes place between the Viking Age and the Fall of Byzantium, and tasks you with overseeing everything from the legitimization of bastards – like what Jon’s whole story is about in Game of Thrones – to instilling dread in potentially dissident vassals. Essentially, it pays attention to what goes on behind the scenes, as opposed to solely focusing on the act of war itself.
So far, critics seem to be pretty impressed with Paradox’s latest. To make life easy for you, we’ve compiled a full Crusader Kings 3 reviews roundup to give you a look at critical impressions across the board.
