  • Crusader Kings III Available Now!

    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.

I like how the number of empires in the game at the start keeps creeping up. Wasn't it like 16 when the game was first announced? It's 44 now.
