Paradox’s award-winning medieval strategy game is now on the latest Xbox and PlayStation models.
New kingdoms are ready to be founded, and new dynasties will be honored worldwide as Crusader Kings III comes to Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5 today. Paradox’s much-loved grand strategy role-playing game has been thrilling PC gamers since 2020, and now players on other platforms have the chance to relive and rewrite medieval history.
In Crusader Kings III, players lead a royal family through the centuries, controlling characters and their heirs as they try to establish and protect their claims to land, titles, and glory. The realm of a warlike adventurer could be inherited by a more devious son, changing how you see and use the levers of power. Warfare, spycraft, diplomacy, and religion are all available and active fronts in the grandest historical adventure ever to come to consoles.
PlayStation 5 users will experience the game’s stress mechanics themselves, as their DualSense controllers physically react to in-game events as they unfold. The more stress a character has accrued, the more resistance will be applied to the DualSense controller’s Adaptive Triggers, for instance. The PS5’s Activities and Game Help also provide a platform to assist new players as they take their first steps in the world of Crusader Kings.
