Crusader Kings III packshot image
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. Crusader Kings 3 is a big step up from CKII in terms of presentation and polish. It uses a vastly more detailed map, 3D character models, and all the depth of CK2 and its nigh-on eight years of expansions. It’s a notoriously complex franchise at this point, although Paradox is also attempting to make it easier for series newcomers while not detracting from the depth for veterans.
