The game’s Xbox and PlayStation release will mark the first time the strategy RPG series has appeared on consoles.
Crusader Kings III, which was originally released for PC in September 2020, is a medieval simulator which casts players as the leader of a noble dynasty.
“They have their own personality and preferences, and, once the family head dies, they will be succeeded by a new dynastic leader who could be very different from their predecessor,” Crusader Kings III lead producer Nils Ryborg told Xbox Wire.
“A warrior king could die and see his realm divided among his three sons – a diplomat, a religious zealot, and a seducer. The character you play will face events and challenges specifically designed to match their personality and choices through the game.
“Your goal? To create the greatest dynasty in history in a deeply researched world that stretches from Iceland to India, from Scandinavia to Central Africa. Different cultures and religions go toe-to-toe in a world where your bloodline and family history are your claim to prominence and respect.”
Paradox and development partner Lab42 said they’ve customised the game’s UI to work with console controllers, including the addition of radial menus.
