About Crusader Kings III Royal Edition

About this game

The Crusader Kings III - Royal Edition includes the base game and Expansion Pass content!

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 - Royal Edition 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.

  • Robust character customization and progression.
  • Heirs and expandable families within your dynasty.
  • Strategical warfare, espionage, and a variety of tactics.

I've already logged in 60hrs after a week of having it! Besides having a somewhat high learning curve, the game captures the idea of you being a ruler trying to expand your dynasty very well with varieties of actions like going to war, scheming, obtaining vassals, maintaining the bloodline through political marriage etc. It also comes with a large number of mods from very talented fans that can suck up even more hours. If you don't mind some reading, trial and error, I would 100% recommend this game.
