Empire Of Sin’s tactical crime capers commence this December

Pack an extra-thick trenchcoat and woolly fedora, readers. Empire Of Sin, the tactical prohibition crime spree from Romero Games and Paradox Interactive, is preparing to hit the streets this December. As I hear it, Chicago winters are real rough - but what better time to start extorting, shooting and smart-talking your way to the top than under the cover of a roaring blizzard?

Crusader Kings 3 is getting a huge fantasy mod inspired by Dragon Age and The Witcher

One of the main reasons I'm not super into games like Crusader Kings 3 is that they're based on proper history. I know, I know, how uncultured of me. What can I say? Magic and dragons in medieval settings just fire me up a bit more. That excuse won't fly much longer, though, because some CK3 fans are making a mod inspired by the likes…

Crusader Kings 3 North Korea strategy – how to control your entire realm without vassals

The ‘North Korea’ strategy has returned for Crusader Kings 3, and it lets you completely dominate the world if pulled off correctly. This style of play was a thing in the previous version of the game, but has been made even stronger and more viable at this point in CK3’s lifetime.Here’s how to do the North Korea strategy in Crusader Kings 3 and become supreme…

How to disinherit or kill your child and heir in Crusader Kings 3

Yeah, it’s not a great look. Hear me out though. Sometimes your heir is just destined to be a rubbish ruler and you have to get them out of the way. With the medieval laws of Crusader Kings 3, you’re forced to pass your hard work down to your descendants and even play as that useless little kid if you’re unlucky.Wouldn’t it be nice then,…

Crusader Kings 3 barbershop – how to customise your character

At the moment, Crusader Kings 3 only has character customisation for existing rulers and family members, rather than CK2’s more versatile ruler creator. That doesn’t mean you’re without choice though! You can easily make small changes to your character without the need for mods or DLC.Here’s how to access the barbershop in Crusader Kings 3.

Paradox Interactive’s QA staff allege poor treatment, low pay, and mismanaged layoffs

Three months ago, Paradox Interactive signed a collective agreement, to better establish workplace rights with the unions in their company. In an industry where we hear so many horror stories about underpaid and poorly treated employees, unionisation can be an important tool in giving workers a bigger voice, and providing support when it comes to negotiating their rights. This moment has only come after months…

After some issues with the Australian ratings board, Crusader Kings 3 is now available to you on the Microsoft Store, and it's coming to Steam later today.When Paradox Interactive's medieval strategy game launched on September 2nd, it didn't come out in Australia because the Classification Board outright refused it a rating, effectively banning it.

Crusader Kings 3 spymasters plotting to murder themselves and other fantastic, emergent oddities

Crusader Kings 3 sounds absolutely lovely, but the harsh reality I'm currently facing is that I just won't play it. I still need to finish Yakuza Kiwami 2, start Spiritfarer, and earn a crown in Fall Guys.I simply cannot fathom fitting medieval strategy onto my list of shame but I am riveted by the stories other folks are telling about their wayward conquering. I just want…

Feature: You come at the Pope, you best not miss

How fast can you die in Crusader Kings 3?

Yesterday, I dived into the magical world of themed Crusader Kings III playthroughs, with this sobering exploration of what a man's life might look like if he cared for nothing except banging giants. I may return to my nightmare re-imagining of C12th Estonia at some point, but not today. You see, today, there's science to be done.CK3 is, emphatically, all about planning for the long…

Rule Crusader Kings 3 as an immortal with this Vampire: The Masquerade mod

Blood is a powerful tool in the political maneuverings of medieval strategy game Crusader Kings 3, but it's an even more vital resource when your ruler is an actual vampire. Yup, that's sure a thing you can do thanks to the Princes Of Darkness mod that lets you scheme, plot, and rule as a vampire from the Vampire: The Masquerade setting. It's the successor to a Crusader…

Have you met the party baron of Crusader Kings 3?

Wait, you don't know the Party Baron of Crusader Kings 3? Aw, mate, he's only an absolute ledge. Best bants in all the kingdom, I tell ya, throws the best parties from here to the Holy Roman Empire. While it looks like he's scarpered from the game's final release, tales of the legendary host (and some fantastic placeholder art) appear to have helped shape the…

I’ve already made an Estonian giant farm in Crusader Kings 3

High Chieftain Andyamo doesn't ask for much in life. In fact, he wants only two things. To live forever, and to bang every giant in Christendom. Crusader Kings 3, which comes out today, is a game where you very much get out what you put in. You get something, anyway. The sheer density and interconnection of the medieval RPG's many simulations mean that, pretty much…

Crusader Kings 3 review

The way I'd summarise Crusader Kings 3 depends heavily on where you're coming at the game from. If you never played Crusader Kings 2, but were always interested, then I heartily recommend this extremely long, in-depth strategy/RPG hybrid about managing the successive lives of a dynasty of medieval problem people. It's very complex, but it does a better job than its predecessor of explaining itself,…

Brian Mitsoda has been fired as narrative lead on Bloodlines 2

Brian Mitsoda has been "suddenly terminated" from his position as narrative lead on Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2. "That this came as a shock to me is underselling it," wrote Mitsoda in a email statement given to RPS. Paradox Interactive have said in their own statement that Mitsoda and creative director Ka'ai Cluney are "no longer part of the team at Hardsuit Labs."

Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 delayed into 2021

The 15-year wait for a Bloodlines sequel will stretch a little longer, because Paradox today announced they've delayed the launch of Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2 into 2021. While they had never announced a specific release date, the supernatural RPG was expected this year. Now Paradox and developers Hardsuit Labs say they want more time to make sure it lives up to the Bloodlines…

Watch the Crusader Kings 3 developers kill their brother with a duck

The first stream of Crusader Kings 3 started with a classic moment last week. It managed to surprise the developers by revealing their sister as their lover which, hearteningly, shocks them. Any game that can make the creator do a double-take is good by me. The whole 47 minutes is a surprisingly breezy look at the regicide and intrigue at the heart of their upcoming…
