Fate of Iberia, prochain DLC pour Crusader Kings III

En bref. Paradox diffuse une courte bande-annonce pour son prochain add-on, qui se consacrera essentiellement à la péninsule ibérique (semble-t-il une des régions favorites des joueurs).

Au programme, un nouveau mécanisme de jeu majeur, nommé Lutte, pour résoudre les conflits à grande échelle, en plusieurs étapes, celles-ci pouvant s’étaler sur des décennies voire des siècles. Mécanisme qui se veut complexe et pourrait s’avérer intéresser justement pour mieux simuler de longues guerres. Ce Dev diary, numéro 93, dans le forum officiel explique un peu plus les nouveautés, screenshots à l’appui.

Pour le reste cette mini-extension ajoutera aussi divers petits contenus supplémentaires, pour étoffer un peu plus le jeu, voyez le détail dans le communiqué suivant.

Au passage sachez aussi que Crusader Kings III est sorti il y a quelques semaines sur PS 5 et XBOX (voir le trailer ci-après).

New Flavor Pack Coming to Crusader Kings III This Spring

Fate of Iberia Adds New System and More Regional Color

STOCKHOLM – 19 April 2022 – Competing crowns, competing faiths and competing cultures. Medieval Spain and Portugal were fertile grounds for intrigue and conquest, diplomacy and compromise. Ambitions collided, fueling centuries of dramatic history. In Crusader Kings III: Fate of Iberia, players will be able to engage in that drama in an entirely new way. These grand adventures will be yours to enjoy on May 31.

This flavor pack for Paradox Interactive’s critically acclaimed grand strategy role-playing game introduces Struggles, a new system that highlights the unique historical circumstances that typify regions that have been centers of conflict. In Fate of Iberia, players will have new tools to deal with the region’s particular situation, with rival claims and personal grudges taking center stage amidst the vibrant cultural mosaic of Medieval Spain.

New Events: Dynamic historical events, some related to the struggle for Iberia, and others adding greater variety for all players.

New Music: Additions to the Crusader Kings III soundtrack.

As usual, Fate of Iberia will include an update free for all Crusader Kings III owners that adds new options and features for all players. This update will add a new faction type to challenge your ruler, Heads of Faith that can be shared by different religions, vassal contracts for clans, and, of course, a new starting bookmark that highlights interesting Iberian characters for the 867 start date.

Crusader Kings III: Fate of Iberia will be coming 31 May 2022 for a suggested retail price of $6.99/£5.19/€6.99. It will be included for current owners of the Crusader Kings III expansion pass and owners of Crusader Kings III: Royal Edition.
