Paradox Interactive have announced Chapter III of Crusader Kings III, a set of expansions that will bring in some rather exciting sounding additions to the popular grand strategy game.
Chapter III comes in the form of a cosmetic pack, two main expansions and an event pack that will be released across 2024. The first part, Couture of the Capets, is available now that adds in new fashions and styles inspired by French royal culture in the High Middle Ages (13th century).
What else is coming:
- Legends of the Dead - Turn yourself into a figure of legend in this Core Expansion, where great feats and effective propaganda can enhance the power of your bloodline through the centuries. Direct the course of your dynastic legend through Court Chroniclers, and use your growing reputation to build a lasting material legacy. But beware of the growing threat from distant lands as the Black Death builds a legendary legacy of its own. This will be arriving on March 4th.
Trailer for the expansion is below:
- Roads to Power - The majesty of the Byzantine Empire takes center stage in this Major Expansion. Rule from Constantinople through a new Administrative Government form and experience various Byzantine-themed events and flavors. Or, be truly daring and live a life where your noble reputation is not tied to the land, roaming the map as an adventurer for hire.
- Wandering Nobles - Building on the travel system introduced with Tours & Tournaments, this event pack introduces a new Travel Lifestyle and new ways and reasons to travel - incidents and stories related to roaming far from the safety of your court.
“It’s very exciting to be able to talk about our plans for 2024,” says Crusader Kings III Game Director Alex Oltner. “We’ve been working hard on trying to find ways to introduce major historical content like the Black Death and the Byzantine Empire’s distinct form of government into CKIII, and we know that our fans have been wanting these as well. Chapter III promises to be one of the biggest phases in the game’s history.”
Looks like you can't buy them individually, as they're all bundled together as Chapter III. It's going to cost you a bit too with it set at $43.98 / £38.48 / €43.98 for the full bundle.
