Crusader Kings III for 2020

The sequel to the popular medieval simulator franchise will be launching sometime next year on PC via Steam. It will also be included in the Xbox Game Pass for PC.

Players will be free to live out any type of fantasy rule they could think off, but there will be challenges along the way, game director Henrik Fahraeus said in a press release. They were inspired by the popularity of its predecessor even though user friendliness was never their primary goal. Now they want to have the chance of going for a larger audience this time around.

Check out the overview here:


The security of a dynasty rests in the quality of its successors. An heir should be strong. An heir should be forward thinking. Heirs should improve on the oversights of their predecessors. But the most successful heirs are those who build on an already secure foundation.

Crusader Kings III is the sequel to the classic Paradox Development Studio game about medieval conquest, intrigue, religion and high drama. It is a firm step in the direction of a new generation of grand strategy games, with new 3D character models and an even more detailed map. Designed to enhance the experience of Paradox veterans while being more welcoming to young squires, Crusader Kings III is a rich setting for an infinite number of new stories.
