Okay. I love Crusader Kings II. I’m a huge fan. So when I opened my email this morning and saw the announcement, I gotta admit I fangirl’d pretty hard. I know they will do it justice and I will be patient if it has issues. I will sit through the patches if need be.
Here’s the thread to discuss it for other CK lovers, should they exist. Also, to post news and stuff. I’ll try to keep the thread updated as soon as stuff is posted.
There’s a cinematic trailer like sorts on the website, so be sure to check itout.
(current promotions going on, so be sure to sign up for em!)
Just read that the devs will never add “deus vult” to the game due to pressure from…more liberal sides. A game about crusades and crusaders…won’t have the battlecry of the Crusaders because it was “racist”? Do these idiots even know what it meant, and what it was used for? A game about roleplaying won’t allow you to roleplay as the people it allows you play because it doesn’t like the history! Good god!
Devs confirmed via stream that CK3 will not have all the features currently present in CK2. So far that includes merchant republics and nomads, but I am sure it will be more than that. This is really distressing. Imperator: Rome lacked a TON of features and it feels so hollow. CK2 is amazing as it is because of all of the features. Top this off with the historical censorship and it is off to a really worrying start.
Lastly, characters will now replace event art. You will see your character in the events rather than a still art depicting what is happening in a vague manner. The game will also more heavily focus on the roleplay aspect of the series, and took inspiration on the models from the Sims series.
Also, currently, if you play CK2 and do challenges, you can unlock cosmetic items for CK3.
