The Kings’ Crusade places players between the years of 1189-1192, calling upon warriors to enter the heart of the battle in one of the most vicious wars of all time.
Players will have the opportunity to take on such a challenge as either Richard the Lionheart, set to invade and take back the treasured holy land once and for all, or as the great Saladin, who patiently waits and prepares his people for the oncoming invasion.
The Kings’ Crusade invites players to rewrite history through controlling and upgrading leaders and their armies, guiding various historical factions through political events, collecting relics, and unlocking new content in a feature-rich campaign set to take on the strategy genre by force.
A new year has arrived and with it comes a New Year resolution as Richard The Lionheart, the leading historical figure in last year’s immersive real-time strategy game Lionheart: Kings’ Crusade, has undergone a name change. Explaining his decision, the legendary warrior said, “I just felt ‘Richard The Lionheart’ was a bit of a mouthful. I felt I wanted something a little snappier when the little people were addressing me. Therefore, from now on I shall be addressed simply as ‘King’. It’s short, easy to remember, and sums me up perfectly!”
Consequently, publisher Paradox Interactive has now changed the name of the game from Lionheart: Kings’ Crusade to The Kings’ Crusade by royal decree!
