Crusader Kings III Xbox & PlayStation has been confirmed! The next gen CK3 console port will soon be here. Read below to hear about everything we know from the Crusader Kings III Gamescom reveal.
Crusader Kings III Console Port Details
For the CK3 console port, Paradox have appointed Lab42, the studio behind the ports of the Yakuza series and Sonic Mania. Reportedly the console version of Crusader Kings III is being approached more as an adaptation rather than a straight port – the difference being that significant changes have to be made to the game’s User Interface in order to be an enjoyable experience for console users, though changes to the actual gameplay should be minimal / hopefully non-existent.
In a similar fashion to how Cities: Skylines plays on console, the console version of CK3 will utilize radial menus and shortcuts which are better suited to the use of a controller than a mouse and keyboard. See the Crusader Kings III Accouncement trailer below for a sneak peak at what to expect.
