Crusader Kings III heads to PS5 on March 29

Game Ace Pro 0 0 Article rating: No rating

Hey everyone, Justin Forrest,  Design Director at Lab42, here! All of us at Lab42 Games are very happy to partner with Paradox Interactive in bringing Crusader Kings III, one of the world’s most popular PC strategy games to the PlayStation 5. And we are now ready to announce the date for the release. You will be able to build your own royal dynasty on PlayStation starting March 29.

Crusader Kings III heads to PS5 on March 29

Crusader Kings III is an innovative strategy role-playing experience. Released on PC to wide acclaim in 2020, this is a game about personalities as much as politics. You lead a family from generation to generation, assuming the character of whoever holds the noble title you have chosen. So you may start with a warlike duke, but play, in succession, a scheming duchess, a miserly king, and a saintly emperor as you accumulate power in a richly researched and lively medieval landscape.

When we refer to Crusader Kings III as a “grand strategy” game, what we mean is you will have a wide range of strategic tools available, suited for long-term planning. Sometimes the map isn’t conducive to a traditional game of conquest, so it makes sense to bide your time and strengthen your finances. Other times, you may have a ruler who excels at plots and deviousness, making slander and assassination effective tools of power. And, this being the Middle Ages, you must always be aware of the religious implications of your activities. The archbishop may smile on wars against your neighbor, but not look fondly on tossing your troublesome brother from a parapet – if you get caught.

Long loading times were one of my pet peeves with previous generation consoles, so it was important to

Tips and tricks to slay the Dynasty Warriors 9 Empires demo

Game Ace Pro 0 0 Article rating: No rating

While the Dynasty Warriors franchise is known for its electrifying 1 vs. 1,000 musou action, Dynasty Warriors 9 Empires adds some more strategic and tactical elements to the gameplay, forcing gamers to not only outfight their enemies, but to outthink them on the battlefield. And while the full game launches February 15, the free demo is available for everyone to download right now on both the PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4!

I’m excited for fans in the West to finally get a chance to play Empires and experience the thrill of the evolved castle sieges we’ve added to the gameplay. We’ve been working hard on this title the past few years, so to make sure everyone gets the most out of the demo, I wanted to take the time to breakdown what you can expect, as well as provide some quick combat tips to help your training.

The demo features both Invasion Battles, where you must capture enemy castles, and Defensive Battles, where you must defend your castle from invaders. But watch out, the Castle Sieges in this demo are set to a higher difficulty level than in the final version of the game (where you can set the difficulty to your liking), so there is definitely a learning curve, whether you’re on the offensive or defensive side of the attack. Don’t worry, though, as we’ve included tutorials throughout the demo to help every virtual warlord out there come to grips with the new features as quickly as possible.

Speaking of warlords, the demo stages can be played with a selection of familiar officers from the Dynasty Warriors series or with a Custom Officer of your own creation! Edit Mode, a staple part of the Empires entries, will allow you to create your own officer, with a wide range of in-depth customisation options available. Custom Officers that are made in this demo can be carried over to the full game at launch, so I hope you enjoy creating your dream characters and taking them into battle. Whether you’re creating a historical figure, a celebrity, or even just yourself, I am certainly excited to see what creations the community comes up with and can’t wait for everyone to share pictures of their favorite officers on social media.

But before you storm Twitter with pics, it’s time to storm the battlefield! To help in your first attack, check out these helpful hints …

Catapult to Greatness

Catapult Bases will be set up across the battlefield, and it’s important to seize these locations as soon as possible. These bases will automatically attack the other enemy bases on the map, so prioritizing their acquisition will give you an advantage at overthrowing opposing forces.

Ability to Lead

Make the most of the Accompany and Secret Plan abilities in battle. Approaching an allied officer on the battlefield and selecting the Accompany command from the D-Pad will
