Legends of Crusader Kings 3 gameplay

Here's what makes Legends of CKIII so interesting. One of the most notable features of this game is its welcoming and easy-to-play features for new and beginner players of this franchise.

If you've been interested in Crusaders Kings III, but found the heavily-strategic progression repelling, this game is for you. Here, you can pick from five popular starting characters from the CKIII. Each of these characters comes with a unique strategic playstyle, which you progress with highly-intrinsic roleplay.

Here are the five starting characters to choose from and a bit about them:

Petty King Murchad

Details of Murchad's earlier reigns over Munster. His bloodline belongs to the High Kingship of Ireland, known for waging wars with House Briain, and often fighting to grasp territories from Viking Settlers.

Duke Robert

The Duke of Apulia began his life as the leader of a band of highwaymen and a thief. He was born into a family of many siblings. Being the most adventurous of them all, as well as a powerful strategist, Duke Robert became the Duke of Southern Italy. His aim for his kingship was to help his dynasty, the Hautevilles, rule over Sicily.

Duchess Matilda

As the Duchess of Tuscany, Matilda of Canossa hails from 11th-century Italy. After experiencing multiple deaths of her family members, she has taken up the crown to rule. Amongst this, rumours of her ties with witchcraft make her rather a mystical figure.

Duke Vratislav

Vrastislav, The Duke of Bohemia, comes from the Přemyslid, who have ruled over the land for various decades. Since the dynasty always prioritized seniority for succession to the throne, this principle might drive a throne between Vratislav and his brothers.

Emir Yahya

Emir Yahya, the Duke of Toledo, faces risks of eradication with the oncoming of the King of León and his aim to establish the Kingdom of Toledo. Emir Yahaya and his Dhunnunid family must find ways to keep their foothold on the region.

If these characters do not engage your fancy, you can create your ruler character in Legends of Crusader Kings 3 and make your mark in history.

All in all, forge your strategies for May 2024 for the release of Legends of Crusader Kings 3. There are loads of features in-store for both veteran and new CKII players. Are you ready to take on the realm and forge your path in history?
