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.
No, only host needs all DLCs, like in CK2 atm.I just realized (may have been asked but can't check the entire thread) will this require the same dlc's to be activated by everyone? I'm sure sprites won't cause a problem but any dlc that has events probably will. (Nooo don't force me to buy dlc's I dislike just to be able to join most MP games) True expansions I can completely understand but I dislike the idea of it requiring perfect DLC match. Perhaps a compromise where the host's machine sends the needed info during the MP game if an event happens that someone doesn't have the 5$ dlc for. (Don't see this as being a huge problem in DLC sales as most people play this for single player anyways although that might change a bit with the new system)
The stream "Ask Paradox Anything" said 64 multiple times, and while I have heard 32 as well, the stream is more recent, so unless the streamers were mistaken, that may have been updated.
Thank you for the info (and thank you paradox for doing this as it seems to be very community friendly) I didn't play any ck2 multiplayer because I enjoy taking a lot of time and enjoying myself during CK2 and with multiplayer that would seem to be hard.No, only host needs all DLCs, like in CK2 atm.
You are right, they must have upped it. I assumed 32 as that has always been the case, I suppose with the new steamworks API 64 is more reasonable.The stream "Ask Paradox Anything" said 64 multiple times, and while I have heard 32 as well, the stream is more recent, so unless the streamers were mistaken, that may have been updated.

Woa where do people like you come from?Please feel free to ensure STEAM is not required to buy or use this game because I will not be using it at that point. You guys screwed up HOI2 and 3 with your move-is-attack thingy, and I am VERY GLAD I didn't have to spend a lot of money to find out that IT DOESN'T WORK. On paper, EU3 sounded fabulous, but only after playing it for a few hours was it possible to find out that it just didn't work either. Now you propose to change nearly everything about EU4 AND to make it COMPLETELY impossible to get a refund if it turns into another MOO3 by chaining it with STEAM?
Please assure me STEAM is NOT a requirement to play or even buy. I don't want it on my computer at all. I don't care if you think it's an unreasonable phobia, or if they deserve it or not, I don't want it and about half the internet feels the same way. I also would appreciate knowing that move-is-attack will NOT be a part of EU4. How it made it into HOI3 I don't know, as no description I could find mentioned it, but thank God I was suspicious.
Don't argue with him, he has "half the internet" on his side.Woa where do people like you come from?
All you people complaining about steam really confuse me, since steam's multiplayer systems are 1000x more reliable than any Paradox multiplayer has ever been!
Also if you haven't been playing these Paradox games multiplayer you are missing out on the whole point in my opinion
I'm thinking about this scenario for a LAN mode:So no multiplayer without Steam?
What about a LAN mode? Am I still able to play a multiplayer game without Steam and without Internet connection?
