Knights of Honor 2—Sovereign is a modernized take on the original game, and THQ says they plan on making it an accessible entry point to the grand strategy genre. In it, you’ll be making the same kinds of decisions you might in a Paradox game like Crusader Kings or Europa Universalis, but Knights of Honor II is presenting them in miniature, without all the dense menu text to parse. While it’s THQ Nordic publishing the game this time rather than Paradox, the original developer, Black Sea Games, has returned to create the sequel.
Knights of Honor II: Sovereign is THQ Nordic’s first step into the Grand Strategy genre. In cooperation with the veteran game developers at Black Sea Games, the goal is to craft a medieval strategy experience that maintains all the depth players expect while breaking new grounds on approachability. Choose your medieval kingdom and lead it to glory or ruins – the fate of your subjects lies in your hands. Manage your economy, guide your people’s religion, be the master diplomat and a fearless general: become the ruler your people love, and establish a legacy that will live across the generations.
