Just one more day and then it's here. On September 1st the third part of the popular game series Crusader Kings from Paradox Interactive will be released. In the new part of the series, the player once again slips into the role of a high medieval dynasty that fights with competing dynasties on a map of the world that stretches from Iceland to India.
The second installment of Crusader Kings was one of the most popular games Paradox Interactive ever released and a popular vehicle for a vibrant mod community. Those who wanted to leave the Middle Ages behind could also travel to the fantasy world of Game of Thrones, for example, exploring areas that had only been hinted at in the novel series.
The trailers and information published by Paradox Interactive clearly show that the series' previous recipe for success is to be continued, but that there are still many innovations that promise a more profound gaming experience, which can stand out through modern graphics that are right up to date.
Crusader Kings III is not the only game we are feverishly awaiting at the moment. Since today you can also pre-order Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. The latest shooter from the Call of Duty series takes place in the early eighties, in the world of the Cold War.
The player slips into the role of a CIA agent whose team is on the hunt for the Soviet spy Perseus in a "Black Ops" operation. His goal is to infiltrate the highest levels of secrecy of the U.S. military and to shift the balance of power in favor of the Soviet Union.
The game is scheduled for release on November 11th and can already be pre-ordered for the fabulous price of 68,10€. Please keep in mind that this is the console version of the game.
