I love the fox art <3 overall, Art on these Ck3 icons is amazing. Hope future games will get similar amazing art.
The realm rejoices as Paradox Interactive announces the launch of Crusader Kings III, the latest entry in the publisher’s grand strategy role-playing game franchise. Advisors may now jockey for positions of influence and adversaries should save their schemes for another day, because on this day Crusader Kings III can be purchased on Steam, the Paradox Store, and other major online retailers.
Good to see CK3 follows in its parent-brother-uncle's CK2 footsteps.A Perfect Circle: have only two distinct parents, grandparents, and great grandparents, counting absent ancestors as individual characters.
Now, that intrigues me... Something tells me France won't be safe...Al-Andalus: starting as an Iberian Muslim, control all of Iberia and take the Avenge the Battle of Tours decision.
Wait, wait a second... It may just be the name of the achievement, but... can the player have a hand in founding the Templars?Non Nobis Domine: found a holy order.
Mmm... Something tells me a great number of people with get this achievement...The Emperor’s New Clothes: while holding any empire title, be naked.
Marvelous. Just marvelous.
- The Things Love Does for Us: have a lover save you from a murder attempt.
- The Things We Do for Love: murder your lover’s spouse.
There isn't at the moment, but every named character here is already a bookmark character, so you'll see them in the starting interface anyway.Really loving this so far. Will there be a way to jump to an achievement-related character in the selection? To instantly find character's like Magajiva Daura, where not everybody might know where to find them.
Both sides of the Pyrenees, Tours was symbolic of the end of Islamic expansion into Western Europe. Honestly, how true that actually is is probably up for some debate (after all, the Umayyad Caliphate was only about twenty years out from the Abbasid Revolution at the time), but it holds a certain emotional & cultural significance nonetheless. Poitiers itself isn't particularly relevant beyond being the site of the battle.hum the battle of tours was at Poitiers, far away from Iberia. What does this mean ?
-Going Places: as Haesteinn of Montaigu in 867, hold any kingdom-tier title.
Did Hastein of Nantes get a rename?
-Seven Holy Cities: as a Hindu ruler, hold all seven Hindu holy sites at the same time.
So holy sites are back in? Do all religions have seven holy sites?
-Wily as the Fox: starting as Robert the Fox in 1066, rule the Kingdom of Sicily, hold either the Kingdom of Epirus, Hellas, or Thessalonika, and convert all of its original counties to Catholicism.
Do you need to achieve this whilst Robert, or also as his descendants?
I don't believe we have, I'm afraid. But, hey, only gotta wait till next week!I don't think we ever saw the crusades mechanic, if you're able to show that off (or link the dev diary if I missed it)?
Indeed, and you can read more about them here.You better improve the Family Tree viewer for that perfect circle achievement! :Cruel: :Cynical:
Also, Holy Order conformed!
^^ B'aww! Y'all have been great! We're so hyped to see all the enthusiasm!Last dev diary before release. It's been a pleasant ride and they've all been great <3
I. You. That.There really should have been an achievement for becoming HRE as an inbred Habsburg, but that aside not a bad list.
There are a number of ways to become naked, running the gamut from religious, to mental illness, to events.Also, "The Emperor’s New Clothes: while holding any empire title, be naked. " - I do hope it requires "lunatic" or something similar. Or a religion with "nakedness" as a tenet, perhaps?
You certainly can.Wait, wait a second... It may just be the name of the achievement, but... can the player have a hand in founding the Templars?
_This concerns me_.I've obtained at least five of these achievements in real life.
At least lands get divided up this timeI'm a little concerned there are no achievements mentioned related to Crusades or taking Jerusalem/founding the kingdom thereof. Are there achievements that weren't mentioned to keep us further in suspense?
Because successful raids would eventually lead to conquest? As happened in Anatolia?I don't quite understand what iberian muslims would get by avenging the battle of Tours, considering the relatively small importance of the battle itself for them; and the fact that it was more of a muslim raid than a conquest attempt, becoming a truly famous event during the XVIth and XIXth centuries anyway ?
Players can form holy orders, but only be patrons of one at a time without inheriting, so you might be able to form them as the king of JerusalemGood to see CK3 follows in its parent-brother-uncle's CK2 footsteps.

Do hastein and others still start with event troops or is that scrapped as a game mechanic?
- He got a slight shift, rather than a rename.
- Holy sites are indeed, and you can read more about them in the religion dev diary
- As long as you start as him and are playing one of his descendants, then ye're golden. It'd only not work if you started as someone else and married into his family.
I don't believe we have, I'm afraid. But, hey, only gotta wait till next week!

On the whole I agree with this, that achievements are supposed to be hard. Just raking them in from normal gameplay is ... I dunno, feela unnecessary (You Reached Level 5! Here's a sparkly rainbow!). OTOH I mostly play offline meaning no iron man so I don't notice these things.Waaay too many easy achievements.
I understand that there need to be some easy achievements, but where once that was 5-10 maybe 15, it seems to be the bulk of them are easy.
Common occurences such as getting married or having a stress break have no value as achievements.
How many cool challenges were sacrificed so that we could give new players this many easy achievements?
