Northern Lords Flavor Pack Now Available for Crusader Kings on Console

Dozens of new events for viking rulers and their courts

STOCKHOLM - 17 November 2022 - Live the life of a viking adventurer or Norse chieftain in Northern Lords, a flavor pack for Crusader Kings III now available on Xbox Series X|S and Playstation® 5 consoles. Write new histories of northern Europe through new events and character options that bring the hardy life of medieval Scandinavia to your TV screens.

Crusader Kings III, Paradox Interactive’s best-selling medieval strategy role-playing game, casts you as the ruler of a royal dynasty that you must guide through the centuries, changing your player character and your strategies as rulers die and their heirs take control. Northern Lords, the first flavor pack for Crusader Kings III, gives special attention to one of the game’s most popular regions - the homeland of Paradox itself.

Features of Crusader Kings III: Northern Lords include:

  • Norse Adventurer Realms: Norse characters may abandon their own homes and lead hosts into foreign lands to establish their own kingdoms.

  • Jomsvikings and Shieldmaidens: Norse holy warriors and stalwart shieldmaidens take up arms on your behalf, while poet characters can compose stinging rebukes or romantic overtures.

  • New Cultural Content: Special Norse dynastic legacies, Norse blot sacrifices, trials by combat and cultural innovations, as well as numerous new events for additional color.

  • New Art and Music: Original art and musical score to enhance your playing experience.

  • And more: Berserkers, missionaries, runestones, Varangian adventurers, new decisions and other highlights from the exciting history of the Norse people.

This release is accompanied by a free update to Crusader Kings III on console that includes the highly anticipated Ruler Designer - a tool that allows players to create unique starting characters so they can more easily explore how different personalities or interesting combinations of character traits can transform the types of stories that they usually tell.

Crusader Kings III: Northern Lords is now available for Playstation® 5 and Xbox Series consoles. Please check the relevant stores in your region for pricing. Crusader Kings III: Northern Lords is included for all owners of the Crusader Kings III Royal Edition and owners of the Crusader Kings III Expansion Pass.
