Crusader Kings III to Get More Content

Amidst the crumbling Abbasid Caliphate, a struggle ensues to retain dominion over the heartland of its sprawling empire. Characterized by disputed successions, cultural disparities, and challenging circumstances, this era ushers in a period of uncertainty for one of the Middle Ages’ most significant realms. Journey through the intricate tapestry of Medieval Iran with the upcoming expansion, Crusader Kings III: Legacy of Persia, set to launch on November 9.

Drawing inspiration from the historical turmoil known as the Anarchy of Samarra, Legacy of Persia introduces the Struggle System, offering a fresh backdrop and innovative rule sets for the Iranian Intermezzo. This conflict serves as a litmus test for personal, cultural, and religious loyalties. As a ruler, you can pave the way for a new dynasty in this cradle of empires, potentially ending the Arab dominance over Persia, or you can choose to guide the Caliphate through these tumultuous times, reinforcing the power of Baghdad.

Key features of Crusader Kings III: Legacy of Persia encompass:

  1. The Iranian Intermezzo: Witness the waning influence of the Abbasid Caliphate, with determined Iranian leaders vying for independence and a new destiny for the region. Decide whether to establish a new empire, subjugate the faltering Caliphate for personal gain, or aid a resurgent Caliphate in restoring order to the region.
  2. Enhanced Historical Depth: Encounter new decisions, interactions, and structures for rulers in the Persian realm, coupled with specialized content emphasizing the significance of clan leadership and safeguarding the frontier regions.
  3. Evolution of Iranian Cultures: Explore the unique Iranian traditions, incorporating innovative Court Scholars, distinctive Men-at-Arms, and potent structures designed to yield wealth from barren lands.
  4. Fresh Art and Music: Persian characters receive an aesthetic upgrade, Persian architectural design gets a facelift, and the user interface acquires a more Iranian aesthetic in this Flavor Pack. Additionally, eight new musical compositions are introduced, with some designed for events and others tailored to set the mood.

Crusader Kings III: Legacy of Persia is scheduled to launch on November 9, 2023, marking the final installment of the Crusader Kings III Chapter II Pass, which also encompasses the Tours & Tournaments expansion and the Wards & Wardens event pack. Acquiring the Chapter II Pass offers a 27% cost savings when compared to purchasing each item individually.
