Crusader Kings 3 players have been busy in Paradox Interactive’s latest title, and ahead of the massive 1.1 update joining the game, the developer has shared some amazing stats.
Paradox Interactive’s highly-anticipated follow-up to Crusader Kings II hasn’t even been out for a month yet and already players are achieving some remarkable things.
In a press release sent out by the developer, a list of absurd and impressive feats are listed.
They range from genuinely quite impressive (40,591,268 children have been born in-game since its September 1 launch!) to, frankly, quite gruesome (18,212,157 successful murder schemes have been executed).
Away from the binary function of life and death, we’ve seen some other odd situations, too: 1,543,790 prisoners have been cannibalized in players’ worlds, and one of them was a pope!
Additionally, 716,369 stress breaks have been taken, whilst 370,305 people have petted pets – perhaps if those numbers were closer, there’d be less need to take stress breaks, eh?
If stress/relaxation isn’t your style, and you’re more into the whole ‘holy war’ thing, then fret not: Paradox reveals that 1,451,427 holy wars have been started in-game since the game launched. That’s a lot of righteous justice.
If you want to know how long it takes to get to these eye-watering numbers, the development team has disclosed that – to date – players have clocked up 25 million hours playing Crusader Kings III. That’s the equivalent of 2,800 years of in-game playtime.
