Crusader Kings III – Tours and Tournament expansion out in May

Crusader Kings III

Crusader Kings III is getting a big new expansion that takes in travel, weddings, and a spot of jousting. Tours and Tournament arrives in May.


Paradox’s strategy RPG Crusaders III was a sprawling, centuries-spanning affair when it launched in 2020, and it’s only grown in scope with each passing expansion.

The game’s latest pack, Tours and Tournaments, is set to take players on a nice, relaxing holiday – well, as relaxing as you could expect in a game that is all about grabbing and maintaining political and military power.

Due for release on 11 May, Tours and Tournaments will give players the chance to plan their own absurdly opulent wedding, head off on tours – and carefully planning the safest route in the process – or arrange a jousting tournament. And, because you’re an all-powerful ruler, you can get your subjects to pay for all this luxury via taxes.

Tours and Tournaments will be available as a free update for existing Crusader Kings III players, or newcomers can purchase it for £24.99. The other option, though, is to stump up for the Chapter II pack, which for £29.50 bundles together a veritable banquet of content. This includes the aforementioned Tours and Tournaments expansion and the following upcoming packs:

Wards and Wardens: In this pack, new events add greater depth and interaction to the challenges of raising and educating children. Whether parent, tutor or warden, the personalities of the child and the adult may clash as headstrong or determined children resist the knowledge of their betters. Strong guidance, however, can lead to a lifelong bond across the generations.

Legacy of Persia: This forthcoming addition for Crusader Kings III lets you relive the dramatic struggle for survival and empire in the lands between the Euphrates and the Indus. With special attention to the culture and history of medieval Persia, Legacy of Persia introduces new systems for Clan government rulers, and expands on the Islamic and Zoroastrian religions dominant in the region at the time.

Elegance of the Empire: You can dress your Central European characters in the finest of finery with this clothing pack exclusive to owners of Chapter II for Crusader Kings III. Inspired by the historic regalia of the 11th century rulers Emperor Henry II and Empress Cunigunde of the Holy Roman Empire, this pack includes not only new robes and dresses, but historically appropriate crowns and other regalia.

Sounds like a good deal to us. You can pre-order all of this quality content on Steam ahead of its launch on 11 May.
