Paradox Interactive is bringing its strategy simulation title Crusader Kings 3 to new platforms. As revealed during the Xbox Gamescom 2021 showcase, Paradox Interactive is partnering with Lab42 to bring Crusader Kings 3 to Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S and PS5. It’s also launching into Xbox Game Pass, fitting enough, considering the PC version launched into Xbox Game Pass for PC. You can check out the announcement trailer below.
Paradox Interactive notes the success of the console port of another strategy game, Stellaris, as a factor in bringing Crusader Kings 3 to console. No release window was revealed for the game however, meaning it likely won’t be available on consoles in 2021.
In our review of Crusader Kings 3 on PC, staff writer Rich Edmonds said that “If you’re new to the series, now’s a great time to enter the franchise. Crusader Kings III is easily the most newcomer-friendly, offering a tutorial with plenty of pop-ups (ala Stellaris) that help you get accustomed to how everything works. It won’t hold your hand throughout each game, but you won’t feel cheated because your family rein ended due to not being sure what this specific mechanic did.”
