Paradox Interactive today announces the release of the Northern Lords flavor pack for the console version of Crusader Kings III on November 17, 2022. With this expansion, players can immerse themselves in the life of a Norse king or noble.

Northern Lords brings many new events and opportunities for the Scandinavian empires, whose raids and daring voyages became emblematic of the spirit of the Middle Ages. Crusader Kings III, the award-winning strategy and role-playing game about medieval dynasties, was released for consoles earlier this year. Northern Lords is the first content expansion available for the console version of Crusader Kings III.

Accompanying this release is a free update for the console version of Crusader Kings III.

Crusader Kings III: Northern Lords includes the following events:

  • Norse Adventure Realms: Norse characters have the opportunity to leave their own homes and lead their hordes to foreign lands to found their own kingdoms.
  • Jomsvikings and Shieldmaidens: Holy Norse warriors and brave shieldmaidens take up arms on behalf of the players, while poets compose harsh rebukes or romantic declarations of love.
  • New Cultural Content: Special Norse dynasties, Norse blót sacrifices, court battles and cultural innovations, as well as numerous new events add additional color to the game.
  • New artwork and music: National graphics and music pieces for an intense gaming experience.
  • And much more: berserkers, missionaries, rune stones, Warangian adventurers, new decisions and other highlights from the exciting history of the Nordic peoples.
