edit: YOCrusader Kings 3's map is about four times the physical size of its predecessor's, and while it hasn't added many new locations, each individual barony (which used to exist only as small pictures within the county screen) is now its own space on the map that you can march armies through, adding tons of tactical depth. The map will span all the way from Ireland to India, covering nearly all of the geographical area that Crusader Kings 2 does with all of its patches. Unlike Crusader Kings 2, all rulers on the map will be playable from day one instead of having to wait for DLC to unlock specific religious groups and government types.
CK3's foundation is so much better than CK2's.Paradox has also really dialed up the role-playing elements. Borrowing from Crusader Kings 2's Way of Life DLC, characters will pick a lifestyle (warfare, religion, intrigue, etc), and within each are three talent trees that you can put points into over time to gain new traits and abilities. A religion-focused character can work toward becoming a Prophet, for example, which makes founding a new custom religion or heresy cheaper. Dynasties will also level up and gain powerful mechanical bonuses called Legacies, giving you something you can carry with you across generations. Finally, Prestige and Piety are no longer just resources that accumulate. They will also fill up what is basically an experience bar, letting your characters "level up" their Renown and Devotion for increasing mechanical bonuses.
Opposite here. I bought EU4 at launch, decided on one more CK2 game to import, and never went back. Got DLC for both, but I'm around 600+ for CK2 and under 50 for EU4.Pumped for CK3 because it's my chance to get back into the series after never really getting into CK2 (only 200 hours compared to 1500+ in EU4 lol). Though not buying it at launch. Made that mistake with Imperator Rome... Bought it full price and have barely touched it while waiting for all the big updates/fixes.
Also 50% on their own store:My number one wish for CK3 is the ability to pre-plan how gavelkind will split between kids. Let me decide who gets what, and if they don't like it, they can try to do something about it (looking at you, kids of Henry II).
Are the CK2 DLC 50% off everywhere, or does another storefront have a better deal than steam?

Holy Fury is the only one I'm still interested in, but with an infant preventing any significant gameplay, save it if you have it for someone that could benefit more. Thanks though.
Haven't gotten myself to try it again since launch and probably won't be able to until christmas.
I hope they do another beta time now that we know all the content will be free. It helped them rework and find a ton of the bugs. It will also help avoid the Stellaris situation with 2.2 Stellaris, which was broken for a while because of rushing to launch for Christmas.
Yeah johan said he wants to a open beta but has to speak with marketing first.I hope they do another beta time now that we know all the content will be free.
