Looks like this was announced at this mornings PDXCON19 conference and I suspect it won’t be a huge surprise to many. It has been long rumored, for one thing, but also they recently let Crusader Kings 2 go for free to anyone that wants a copy and just a few months ago Humble had the entire catalog available for fifteen bucks. Which I bit on and still haven’t hardly touched, but I love Crusader Kings 2 in theory because of what it is and what it does.
So supposedly this is out in 2020, and according to the RPS article it’s designed to be more approachable than CK2. The visuals/art style look (to me) very interesting. Fantastic - a bit more of a tilted view brings to mind games I love such as Age of Wonders or Civilization, the 3D models look really clean and zoomed out the map and interface retains what I loved about it from CK2 while bringing it into focus easier. I like it, at least from what I’ve seen.
There is a full genetics system, as they move into a full-on actual dynastic system. A bigger focus on the player as a character even than CK2 was doing, from what Eurogamer wrote.
Take a look at some previews and come back here - what are the thoughts of the CK2 veterans? This looks cool to me, at any rate!
Warning - non-gameplay CGI trailer.
Also, sounds like it’s coming to Game Pass for both PC and XBOX!
