Paradox Interactive’s Crusader Kings 3 appears to be heading to consoles, at least according to the Taiwan Digital Game Rating Committee. The consoles that the listings are for include PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S. Crusader Kings 3 was released in September 2020 on PC with it being available through Steam, Paradox, Microsoft Store, and Xbox Game Pass for PC. Considering the game is already on Game Pass, Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S subscribers may get the grand strategy title at no additional cost. If Crusader Kings 3 does release on console it would be the first time the series has been released outside of PC.
Back in May, Paradox Interactive announced the first major expansion for Crusader Kings 3, and it is called Royal Court. The key addition is a visual representation of your royal court for kings and emperors, letting you display your accumulated relics and trinkets to show off how prestigious your dynasty has become. From here you’ll be able to interact with vassals and courtiers as they come to petition you for a royal judgment. There will be additional roles in your court to award to people, from food tasters through to a court tutor, who can help you learn foreign languages. You might also have more Inspired People appear, who could create great works or craft impressive weapons and jewelry for you.
We wrote in our Crusader Kings 3 review:
The best way to think of Crusader Kings 3 as a sequel is in terms of its own dynastic gameplay. Sure, Paradox have started from scratch with a new game, but it’s still full of scheming, warring amidst an impressive breadth of cultures and religions. Crusader Kings 3 is an heir that has been born from Crusader Kings 2 and its many expansions, including and improving on so much of what made that game great, but it can still grow and improve in its own right.
