In our 9/10 Crusader Kings 3 review, PCGamesN says it “successfully modernizes the medieval strategy series, preserving much of what’s good and adding some interesting new ideas. While it still needs to iron out a few details, it’s a worthy successor to the series’ august crown.”

Its most recent update on March 7, 2024, comes after the release of Legends of the Dead and the 1.12.1 Scythe Update just a few days earlier; as of right now, Crusader Kings 3 is well-supported and implementing quick hotfixes for issues that arise, which is always a good sign in our book.
