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.
Also will their be a game master option were the host can become the game master and control all things in the galaxy?
That sounds like observer mode. There will probably be some equivalent of that in the future. Observer can't control everything but mods could allow that if they are supported in the future (and who knows - observer may have super powers in console edition).
Or an easier solution would be for the dev's to just unlock the command console. Which would not only allow observer mode, but also all the perks along with it. Like taking over a stagnate brain dead AI empire, upgrading and building what they lack so they become a challenge again. Instead of just starving their pops and crippling their economy to the point it makes no difference what difficulty or aggressiveness you play on because ultimately you'll snowball them no matter what because the AI is so broken. Would be substantially easier to implement than mod support lol
Obviously you'll be able to upload the game in single player modify it with the command console then upload back into multiplayer which is technically cheating in retrospect, but the PC version seems to have no issues with this and neither should we.
Just my two cents, but what do I know? it's not like you can't find any of this information yourself, but of course people (who's names I won't mention) will make it seem like I'm just making this shit up lol
Is there or will there ever be PC and XBOX co op?
thank youCurrently there is no cross-play between systems, and it's unlikely that there will be - at least for the foreseeable future. The console edition of Stellaris is based on the 1.7 version of the game and the PC version is 2.5 if I'm not mistaken. I think the next big update takes it to 2.6. For cross-play to even be viable, the two editions would have to be on the same version/build before anything else. Given the performance differences and issues, and the intrinsic advantage that PC players could have I don't think cross-play is something we'll see for Stellaris. At least not for a while. Maybe after the next generation of consoles comes along and a lot more updates to console edition.
Not possible unless you send the save file to them, but you can't really do that on console so there is no way for them to open up that save on their own.Let’s say I hosted the game and with three other friends. After we finished playing should they be able to play their saves in single player mode or is this not possible?
This is a technical difficulty that even with the PC version hasn't been worked out just yet. There have been a number of requests for a GM mode for the game, and it's something that we may explore in future but for right now it's not on the radar.
You can conduct all of the same diplomacy options that you currently have available to you with AI empires, except the person on the other end is a player. As far as controlling a single empire together, no this isn't possible. You would play separate empires but otherwise, all diplomatic options will be available as if in a singleplayer game.
Typically you try to keep in contact with them and set up days to play that playthrough. It's not abandoned unless no effort is put in to keep it going.Hi. It seems only the host keeps the savegame so you can't continue the game if you joined. But if you joined a random online game it would be nice to keep a copy to continue playing. Makes no sense to play online with random players?
