If you’ve been itching for new adventures and grand events in the medieval world of Crusader Kings III, today’s your lucky day. Paradox Interactive has just released their latest expansion, Tours & Tournaments, and we couldn’t be more excited!

Now, instead of being cooped up behind your castle walls, you can travel your realm, attend royal weddings, and participate in grand tournaments. Not only does this offer a whole new layer of intrigue and strategy, but it also gives you the chance to improve your characters’ skills and traits. But be warned, with great risk comes great renown!

Crusader Kings III: Tours & Tournaments – Release Trailer

Tours & Tournaments is packed with features that’ll make you feel like a proper medieval ruler. Fancy hosting a grand tournament? Go for it! Want to take a grand tour of your realm and check on your vassals? You got it! And who can resist the appeal of a grand wedding, where politics and power take centre stage? Not us, that’s for sure!

This expansion also introduces a new travel system, allowing you to plan your route to these events, either taking a safe journey through civilized lands or risking it all with a more direct route through dark forests and dangerous mountains. You can travel with a large entourage to show off your importance or travel light to get down to business.

Other notable features include knightly accolades, new armour designs, and new western clothing that showcases the evolution of fashion in Western Europe from the time of the Carolingians to the end of the medieval era.

Crusader Kings III: Tours & Tournaments is available now for £24.99, and to sweeten the deal, Paradox Interactive is also launching a major free update for all players. So, what are you waiting for? Grab your trusty steed and let the adventure begin!
