One Of 2020's Best Games Is Coming To Xbox Game Pass

One Of 2020's Best Games Is Coming To Xbox Game Pass

With a 91% rating on Metacritic, Crusader Kings III is not only one of the highest rated strategy games of all time, but also one of the highest ranking games on the ratings platform. However, a number of players haven't been able to access this content as it has long been a PC exclusive.


Now console owners who are fans of strategy have to hide their dismay no more. Not only is Crusader Kings III making its way onto the latest generation of consoles, but subscribers to Xbox Game Pass will be able to try it out for free. As strategy can be a niche genre of games, this is a great way to try out one of the best examples without a large financial commitment.

Still not sure if you are ready for the Middle Ages? Check out the trailer for Crusader Kings III in the video below.



This is the first time that the series will come to console and so is a landmark moment. As such, a lot of amendments have been made to the game. The UI and control scheme has been adjusted to suit a controller and to be visible on larger screens. There will also be radial menus to help with controllers' lack of buttons compared to keyboard.

Set in Europe during the Middle Ages, Crusader Kings III offers something a little different for fans of the genre. What sets it aside is how thoroughly researched the history is, especially for a time so far in the past. The historical accuracy is something Paradox is proud of.

"Love, fight, scheme, and claim greatness. Determine your noble house’s legacy in the sprawling grand strategy of Crusader Kings III. Death is only the beginning as you guide your dynasty’s bloodline in the rich and larger-than-life simulation of the Middle Ages."


Those interested in entering the Middle Ages will have to hold their horses for just a little while longer. Crusader Kings III will be available on the latest generation of consoles from 29 March, and also added to Xbox Game Pass the very same day.
