Paradox is bringing plenty of improvements to the forefront of this title. Character models are 3D and the map is more detailed than before, with enhancements specifically designed to appeal to longtime fans and newcomers alike.

"Crusader Kings III is a grand medieval simulator where you are free to live out any plausible ruler fantasy that we could think of - but not without challenge." says Henrik Fåhraeus, the Game Director. "Seeing its predecessor explode in popularity was very satisfying, especially considering that user friendliness was never our primary goal. Now we have a chance to address an even larger audience."

Crusader Kings 3 is currently slated to arrive sometime in 2020 for PC. It'll be available both through Steam and through Xbox Game Pass for PC.
