The Guild 3
Your destiny is never tied to anybody other than yourself.
The Guild 3 is a unique blend of eco-simulation, strategy game, historical life-sim, and RPG.
One of the goals in the “The Guild” series is to create a family dynasty which can last for centuries. While the world around you and your dynasty rearranges itself time and time again – all non-player characters (NPCs) make their own decisions – you have to prove your skills in artisan craftwork and trading, participate in social occasions and perfect your political schemes and malicious intrigues.
Prices in GAME Stores may differ.

Sandbox Replayability AI System Editor Multiplayer with up to 16 Players Free Play Mode City Districts Economy Character / Dynasty Evolution
Forge your dynasty and create your own “goal” of the game: become sovereign (with “good” or “evil” behaviour), dominate the city or the whole scenario (economically, politically) or annihilate all of your competitors.
AI makes every scenario look, feel, and play differently, as the need and desire based system influences the AI behaviour in a (seemingly) random way.
Random-based global events, e.g. famine, plagues, war, town fires.
Actions from other players (or from yourself) like revolts in neighbourhoods, trade embargos and other economic measures.
The EHE (Evolutive Human Emulator), the new AI system in the Guild 3, is adaptive, dependent on a 6 trait-system, and with said AI, behavioural patterns evolve because of its inherent ability to adapt to any given need and desire system. The 6 defining traits or characteristics of our agents (including groups like societies, neighbourhoods, etc. that come to "think" as a whole), are separated into 3 groups of opposing pairs:
1. Construction – Destruction
2. Ego – Community
3. Wealth – Power
The EHE was developed for large-scale, multi-agent dynamic systems. The goal was to make a system that would learn from experience and modify its behaviour according to a changing dataset and changing actions by the player.
The EHE learns by experience and saves its knowledge, so the more you play, the better it’s suited to play against you.
- Will be available at launch to create and share maps with the community, and select from an ever-growing library of scenarios.
- Easy to use modding kit in “sandbox-style”.
- The Guild 3 has its custom multiplayer integrated and can connect to other The Guild 3 players, no matter where they bought the game. Every player will be able to play with each other, even LAN vs. LAN connected via Internet will be possible.
- Players joining a multiplayer-scenario will not join a team, but rather choose their character instead.
You can choose between objective (story) driven or free play to create and break alliances at will.
In The Guild 3 the societies can be compared to very powerful social clubs. Some of them, like the Freemasons or the Smithsguild, are publicly known, others, such as the Guild of Thieves or the Warlocks’ Circle, are kept secret.
New neighbourhoods are being created within a city through political intervention/general rise in population, or similar environmental circumstances.
After you have established your financial basis, you have the option to set to automatic and focus on politics, intrigues, and increase your power/influence/wealth etc.
There are a complex tree of skills, professions, actions and bonuses waiting for you to be unlocked.
