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.
Not to be the party pooper but what exactly would that accomplish? There are currently 3 or 4 games in development, one of which will be announced this con because it's far enough in development. The outcry for V3 or lack of outcry for an antiquity game will have absolutely zero influence on these 3 or 4 games, nor on which game they will announce.I agree with this.
Just some signatures and stuff could work as a start.
Probably nothing, just like this very thread, but make us feel better, get us some nice signatures out there and perhaps get a funny trolling response from Paradox.Not to be the party pooper but what exactly would that accomplish?

The only thing it might influence is what game they will start development in next and I would be severely disappointed if an antiquity game is not already in the works. On top of that considering how much PDS likes trolling I highly doubt increasing the Vocality of support for this game on the forum will do anything to change their plans.
Alright if you put it that way I'm on board. Good knows a full score PDS GSG set in antiquity is long overdueProbably nothing, just like this very thread, but make us feel better, get us some nice signatures out there and perhaps get a funny trolling response from Paradox.
Yep, we're aware and eager to see if this is the time when we get Rome II.are you guys aware that the new Pdox Studio project might very well be Rome II?
- Is it popular demand?
- Johan Andersson is the gamedirector and designer of this game.
- There will be minorities.
- Spelling the name of the game is rather easy.
Minorities can be referred to any senate/gherusia/whatever in any not tyrannical state.Minorities as in the Roman Senate? Too Roman-centered I guess.
As in minorities within a province, like the Victoria game has?
Minorities as in provinces that belong to smaller states, like EU:Rome or the EU games in general?
I agree, but this also spells too many DLCs because I can't see Paradox adding in more than a couple systems. We know that the Germanic and Celtic tribes had their systems, I guess some others in the Middle East had theirs, various Greek city-states had their unique systems. We are probably just getting the Roman one or a few generic variations of it for the rest. I'm guessing DLCs will follow pending demand for more of these in the future but who cares as long as we get a Rome/Antiquity game?Minorities can be referred to any senate/gherusia/whatever in any not tyrannical state.
Or It could point to some social condition: for example spartans were a minority compared to perioecs and helots
Well Rome actually became superpower after the Punic wars (First 264-241BCE and second 218-201BCE). This could start at the time of Samnite wars (343-341BCE) or just somewhere after dead of Alexander the Great and before the Unification of Italian peninsula (Alexander could be an DLC) and you would have states like Ptolemai Egypt, Seleuks and other Hellenistic kingdoms. Off course playable Greek Citi-states, Carthage and other Phoenicians, Persians, steppe npeople like Scythians, Armenians, Iberian tribes, Gauls, Celts, Germanic tribes, Britons, Balcan nations like Dacians, Thracians and Illyrians. Man i could go and go and go.I'm hoping for Rome 2... but not for, like, it really being Rome 2.
I love ancient history, and I desperately need a good strategy game set on ancient times (last one was Age Of Empires... the first one). But... well, yeah, what have the Romans ever done to us?
I would love to play with Persia, Egypt, Athens, and maybe even prevent the Roman Empire from even happening.
A Rome-centered game won't be so much replayable, because Rome is a so unstoppable machine... so every single playthrough would have to be about or playing as Rome and conquering the whole world, or playing as not-Rome and struggling to survive against it. I want something that starts earlier, with leads to potential new alternative histories, thus being replayable, just like EU is.
