The hype is building more and more towards the imminent release of the Crusader Kings 3 Royal Court DLC. The DLC is the game’s first major expansion since its launch in September 2020, and it will add so many new features that change the game massively.
One of the new features coming to the game is the Royal Court, a 3D room showcasing your characters in a whole new light. Courtiers, gentry, titleholders, and the royal family are present in these rooms, along with other facets of medieval life. The recent CK3 dev diary focuses on the Crusader Kings iii artifact weapons, which greatly enhances the legendary weapons myth of the medieval age used in CK3 when it launches.
In the mini CK3 dev diary, Paradox Interactive gave us a better snippet of the Crusader Kings 3 artifact weapons. When players go inside the Royal Court, players will find a character’s artifact weapons decorated throughout the halls. Players who get their hands on a legendary weapon can display it for all visitors to see.
In terms of the aesthetic, these items are generated based on the weapon type and culture they were forged. A germanic HRE sword will look somewhat different from a Francish sword, which will look dramatically different to a weapon created in Arabia. For the RPers out there, no doubt you’ll be looking to collect weapons while on Jihad or Crusade, looking to bring tales of your exploits, pilgrimages, or conquest snack to your court.
In terms of modding, the GoT mod fans are going to be incredibly happy. Imagine sitting in your manor, with a giant Valerian Steel sword hanging above your fireplace’s mantle. Hopefully, Samwell Tarly doesn’t go pinching it.
Crusader Kings 3 Royal Court is due to release on February 8, 2022, so there is not long left to wait for this highly anticipated piece of content.
