I can't remember if we talked about it here before, but the upcoming 4X 10 Crowns has been renamed Old World and is now in early access on EGS. It's looking to be more-or-less equal parts Civilization (specifically IV and V, I think) and Crusader Kings 2.

The familiar accessibility of a Civ with the character-driven and event-heavy dynastic systems of CK should be a fantastic marriage if it all works out, so I'm really looking forward to this one.

Old World, Humankind, and Crusader Kings 3 are all launching this year, barring virus WFH adjustment delays, so it'll be fun to see which of 'em take off.

The Nathan Drake Collection and Journey are both "stay the fuck home" freebie incentives on PSN right now. Good excuse to play Journey if you haven't already. The Drake Collection is probably more Uncharted than I really need coming off 4 and Lost Legacy not too long ago.

On the PC side, Just Cause 4 is the current free game on EGS, which feels... quick, but I suppose it's slightly older than I realized and wasn't quite as well received as its predecessors, so whatever.

Old World could definitely be cool. I could be mistaken, but I've never found a Civ-style sim that puts a focus on characters. I know a few like Tropico have tried to incorporate dynasties but I haven't tried any personally.
