This isn’t just about sitting on a fancy chair, mind you. With this expansion, you’ll be interacting with your vassals and courtiers as they come to you with their problems, seeking your royal judgement. It’s a lot like being an agony aunt, except you’re a king or queen, and your decisions might lead to wars. No pressure, right?

And speaking of fancy, the grandeur level at your court can be cranked up with posh trappings and lavish banquets. This is all about upping the prestige, attracting higher quality guests, and making those rivals green with envy.

Expect a flurry of creativity from inspired artists, craftspeople, and thinkers working on new projects, as they add precious treasures and artefacts to your court. There’s even an inventory system where you can commission and collect special weapons, armour, and regalia to boost your royal prowess.

But that’s not all! The Royal Court expansion also introduces Hybrid Cultures, allowing you to mould a multicultural realm, and Cultural Divergence, giving you the chance to split from your traditional culture and adapt it into something that aligns better with your royal aspirations.

As if that wasn’t enough, a major free update to Crusader Kings III is accompanying the release of Royal Court, available to all console players. This update includes the much-anticipated character designer, letting players create their own starting character.

So, are you ready to experience the grandeur of a royal court firsthand? Crusader Kings III: Royal Court is now available for purchase on Playstation® 5 and Xbox Series consoles *.
