About Crusader Kings III

About this game

Lead your dynasty through the Middle Ages in the sequel to one of the most popular strategy games ever made with your Crusader Kings III Steam PC key. This strategy sim RPG 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.

HISTORY IN THE MAKING
Choose a royal or noble house from a number of realms on a map that stretches all the way from Iceland to India, from the Arctic Circle to Central Africa. 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.

BUILD YOUR LEGACY
Guide a dynasty through the centuries, ensuring the security and power of each new generation, and 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.

UNIQUE CHARACTER CUSTOMIZATION
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.

STRATEGY & WARFARE
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.

KEEP YOUR ENEMIES CLOSER
Use your spymaster to discover plots against your dynasty and your rule, and recruit agents to assist your schemes to undermine or murder anyone who stands between you and power. You can even try your hand at seducing 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.

YOUR OFFICIAL CRUSADER KINGS 3 STEAM PC KEY INCLUDES:

  • Robust character customization and progression.
  • Heirs and expandable families within your dynasty.
  • Strategical warfare, espionage, and a variety of tactics.
  • Sequel to one of the most popular strategy games ever made.

I found it a lot easier to get into than Crusader Kings 2 was. Very addicting as well, I have almost 50 hours in the game already and it's been less than 2 weeks.

I Freaking Love This Game!!

Crusader Kings 3 just might be the best medieval strategy game that I ever/will ever play in my lifetime. The controls and interface is really easy to learn. The updated graphics and game mechanics are a fresh of breath air in the franchise as a relatively newcomer to the series. Compare this game to Sims 3 meets Civ 6 meets the best parts of Total War with sprinkles of Clue and Mario Paint!

One of the flagship paradox games for a good reason. The game is as much for role-players as it is for conquerers. You can create your own character and family, your own religion, choose a nation, and lead them for hundreds of years. It's the kind of game that demands you play just a little bit longer.

Already have some experience in CKII, so got into this with high expectations. CKIII certainly delivered, as I have already spent about 15 hours in game since buying it last week. Certainly recommended.
