Hello everyone! We're pleased to announce that the next Major Expansion for Crusader Kings III, Roads to Power, will be releasing on Steam and Microsoft on September 24th!


See the World, Seize the Purple! The glory and might of the Byzantine Empire take center stage in the latest expansion for Crusader Kings III. Rule from Constantinople through the new Administrative Government type and experience a variety of new Byzantine-themed events and flavor, or be truly daring and live a life where your noble reputation is not tied to the land, roaming the map as an Adventurer for hire.

Roads to Power features include:

  • Administrative Government: Experience medieval rule outside of the feudal system with new styles of empire management. A web of Governors jockeys for position in the empire with intrigue and power, sometimes rewarding merit and sometimes rewarding perfidy. Only a truly skilled Emperor can keep these squabbling forces in line.
  • The Family Estate: Run and manage a powerful Family Estate, the seat of your Houses' power. Construct new buildings and improvements to further your power and influence within the Empire.
  • A Life of Adventure: Freely roam the map, untied to any realm or holding, going where the winds of fortune blow you. Fulfil contracts as a landless adventurer, even through the generations, building up a reputation of your own. Earn gold, prestige and fame traveling the globe until you decide to settle down and claim a land you have earned through merit.
  • Influence System: Build up a character’s influence within an administrative empire to climb even higher in the opinion of the Emperor, gathering more power to yourself. Start as a landless noble on an estate, and compete for valuable provinces to govern.
  • New Imperial Management: Run a sprawling imperial bureaucracy, appointing and directing the governors of your provinces.
  • Choose Successor or Caesar: The Byzantine Emperor can choose their heir from a list of Influential candidates or important family members, and even opt to co-rule if the burden of empire is too much.
  • New Byzantine Flavor Content: New events, monuments and activities built around the Byzantine theme, including chariot racing.
  • Cosmetic additions: A Byzantine-themed UI skin and new court fashions for your characters, as well as new 2D event art for activities like chariot racing, new on map monuments of the Byzantine and Roman worlds, new on map holding designs and a Byzantine throne room for Royal Court sessions, among other aesthetic improvements...

Admiral Boysen said: I thought next Tuesday was tomorrow?
No, that's this Tuesday. Next Tuesday is on the 11th.

(In all seriousness, the ambiguity is why we specified the date on top of it.)
