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.
This is actually possible because languages are already modeled in the game.Since V3 is already going to be an unusual game amongst grand strategy games I hope they try out some more unusual ideas. I would love to see a mechanic which deals with evolution of languages. The early part of this period still has most European languages evolving and being standardised (in1836 italians didn't speak mutually intelligable languages) there are also a lot of opportunities to address issues like that for non European nations as they adapt to a world increasingly cominated by latin script. Of course there are also countless examples of language revatilisation or unification being used as a tool for creation of shared conciousness (think of Ireland, Czechia etc).
It is an important issue for building nation building and shaping so I hope it is addressed in some way.
Magnates, monopolies, and trust busting. I dont know about world wide, but these were a huge deal in the U.S.The one I'm pretty much certain of is the corporation DLC. Fits too damn well and seems sensibly easy to de-couple from the rest of the game mechanics. Might also include NGOs like the Red Cross and the like.
