Paradox Interactive has announced the launch of Crusader Kings III in consoles. Of course, at least for the moment it will only come to the new generation: it will come out in PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X and S next March 29, including launch at Xbox Game Pass. The strategy game, which originally emerged on PC in September 2020, will include all the content released so far on the new platforms.
The output of Crusader Kings III has already been rumored for a few months, when Taiwan’s age classification body listed these game editions on his system, including a version for Xbox One that has not been materialized for now. At that time, he could arouse a bit of rejection when thinking about how he would implement his HUD in consoles, although the study himself has confirmed that “they have adapted for their interface and controls to adapt to larger and larger screens.”
Within its technical novelties, we also know that it will have “super rapid load times” and, in the case of PS5, we can feel stress and the pressure of the characters through the sensitivity of the adaptive triggers of the dualsense.
In addition, this news arrives close to the recent announcement of the 1.5 patch, which will add the possibility of “getting married between people of the same sex,” a function that had already been implemented with mods but that the company has wanted to include officially in the game base. For this, they explain, have updated the logic and interactions of the AI.
Both this patch and the next DLC, The Royal Court, will be available from next February 8.
Crusader Kings III is available at Steam and in the Microsoft Store at PC , included in the Game Pass subscription. The version of Xbox Series X and S can be played in the same service as of March 29, the day it will also come out for PS5 .
