Today, Crusader Kings III is on Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5, and starting immediately, new kingdoms and dynasties can be founded. Paradox Interactive's popular grand strategy role-playing game has been delighting PC players since 2020 and now offers players on other platforms the opportunity to rewrite and experience medieval history. 

In Crusader Kings III, players lead a royal family through the ages, controlling characters and their heirs as they seek to establish and protect their claims to lands, titles, and fame.

Crusader Kings 3: Release for power consoles

A warlike adventurer's realm may be inherited by a more sneaky son, changing the way he views and wields the levers of power. Warfare, espionage, diplomacy and religion are all available and active components of the greatest historical adventure ever on consoles.

The console version of Crusader Kings III features a customized user interface and control scheme tailored specifically for larger screens and console gamepads. The all-new controls allow players to quickly and easily navigate through the game's menus using triggers, bumpers and quick movements of the analog stick.

The console version also supports key Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5 features, like super-fast load times for a seamless gaming experience, and haptic and adaptive trigger controller feedback. On Xbox Series X|S, Quick Resume allows players to switch between the game and other applications such as YouTube, where they can watch a tutorial on how to put down a peasant rebellion.

PlayStation 5 users will experience the game's stress mechanics for themselves, as their DualSense controllers will physically react to in-game events as they unfold. For example, the more tension a character has accumulated, the more resistance is applied to the DualSense controller's adaptive triggers. The PS5's "Activities" feature and in-game help also provide a platform to help new players take their first steps into the world of Crusader Kings.

Crusader Kings III includes the following features:

Character oriented gameplay: Each character that players play or interact with has their own unique personality. Character quirks have a major impact on the events and course of action in the game.

Infinite possibilities: Players take over any noble house from Iceland to India, Finland to Central Africa and steer their fortunes over five centuries. They interact with itinerant guests, wayward children, devious spies, and august clerics in an elaborate depiction of medieval life.

warfare: Players rally their vassals and mobilize their forces to besiege enemy castles or quell uprisings. Individual skill on the battlefield can bring glory and glory, but strategic planning is the key to victory.

Royal marriages: In order to imprint the royal seal on the coats of arms of other kingdoms and duchies far and wide, one's DNA must be spread throughout the world. Players marry for power and raise children to claim new lands.

saints and sinners: Whether loyal to religious leaders or committing major crimes in the interests of the state, when the going gets tough, you can always commit heresy or proclaim a new religion that suits your character's priorities.

Paradox Interactive has also put a release trailer online for the release of Crusader Kings 3 for Playstation 5 and Xbox Series X|S:
