  • 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. 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.


    Real Strategy Requires Cunning

This thread is more than 5 months old.

It is very likely that it does not need any further discussion and thus bumping it serves no purpose. If you feel it is necessary to make a new reply, you can still do so though.

These diaries and the video/photo posts are very encouraging, especially the high-level command tools and overall approach that can turn what on the micro-level sounds like a Grigsby monster game into something highly playable, maybe even for casual and big-picture players.

I know you said not to talk about EvW, but will the way troops were deployed in EvW be carried into HOI4? It was badly needed in HOI3 which ended up with a process of spending like a hour just deploying troops on the border with Poland but in EvW took less that 5 minutes..

Looks amazing, thank you!!!

Please forgive me if you have already addressed these questions:

1 - What will the system requirements be for this game?

2 - Will it allow for touch screen play or mouse and keyboard only?

3 - Do we have a firm release date yet?

Thank you again and Happy New Year!!!

The colors look much duller in the latest "Political" videos compared to the videos and screenshots we have seen in the past. Is this because it's winter time? Or is this a change that's been implemented to make the game have a more WWII "Feel" to it? I hope not.
