The 1.3 "Corvus" update went out which adds in a huge amount to the game including Winter. Yes, Winter is coming so you need to be more prepared than ever as the map gets a blanket of snow and there's a few different types. There's a new personal combat system that has characters have a duel, the Poet trait has been added to the game, an enhanced hair & beard inheritance gene system, a vast number of new Coat of Arms for Norse rulers, 8 new Norse-inspired Custom Faith icons and more.
