The developers behind Crossed kings 3 We return for another deep monthly immersion in his work on the great strategy game, and this video is about the lifestyle system that will help players develop deep and emerging stories in their alternative stories. Among them is the opportunity to take care of His Holiness.
Players can choose from five lifestyles for their rulers, and those lifestyles have three benefit trees and three focuses, which carry bonuses that support a wide variety of lifestyles. Paradox Interactive reviewed this in an even more detailed series of blog posts over the past month, too.
Generally speaking, that means there is a Learning lifestyle, and players can choose a focus in Medicine, Scholarships or Theology. The other lifestyles are Stewardship (basically, how you manage your domain); Diplomacy (how you handle someone else) and Martial (how you knock it down).
Yes, yes, boooooo-ring. I prefer to learn more about INTRIGUE LIFESTYLE, where players can specialize in Skulduggery, Temptation and Intimidation / Torture, categories that should explain themselves. The temptation is what I came to talk about here, because the seduction scheme is coming back from Cross Kings 2 in a big way This time, not only are your lovers less likely to kill you, but they are more likely to take a knife that kills you, so don't get too attached to anyone.
Somewhat funny, it seems that all NPCs are on the table when it comes to seduction goals. That includes the pope! In a Discord conversation earlier this week, the developers said that even the Pope can be seduced "and that there is a special event for it." For more information on how events work, Paradox published this newspaper in January.
Players who have better ideas for Crossed kings 3The lifestyles of the rich and ruthless will appreciate that the benefit trees are fully modifiable. That includes granting immortality, instead of leaving things to your heirs to clean or worsen.
Cross Kings 3 It comes sometime this year. Paradox Interactive has not said exactly when, but when the game starts, it will be on Windows PC via Steam and Xbox Game Pass for PC.
