CK2 Dev Diary #75 - Enter the Dragon

  • Crusader Kings III Available Now!

    The realm rejoices as Paradox Interactive announces the launch of Crusader Kings III, the latest entry in the publisher’s grand strategy role-playing game franchise. Advisors may now jockey for positions of influence and adversaries should save their schemes for another day, because on this day Crusader Kings III can be purchased on Steam, the Paradox Store, and other major online retailers.

Hi everyone, I hope you’ve all had a great weekend!

The countdown has started and Jade Dragon will soon be available for download; this Thursday in fact!

By now, I think we’ve covered most aspects of the expansion pretty thoroughly, so I think I'm just going to post this beautiful new loading screen:

Take care folks, and if you want one last sneak peak of the expansion before Thursday, make sure to tune in to the CK2 livestreams today, starting at 16:00 CET! Servancour will do a special quick run-through of the new features!

Well, I guess the loading screen is cool....

You didn't cover portrait and unit packs.
I wouldn't mind that much, but they're part of the expansion.

Thank you. Guess it means game is selling pretty well after all. And I'm glad, maybe I'll receive expansion I wish for... :)
The next expansion will cover something a lot of people have asked for.

Maybe I missed something, but for the White Hun achievement, what are the kingdoms of Transoxiana and Kabulistan? Are those culturally localized titles because I don't see them in the 769 de jure setup when I start a new game. Or is this a map change?

We did cover the portraits in Dev Diary 70.
Ah, right.
Sorry.
Units are still in the dark though... :)

Also, I'm probably asking for too much, but can I get a blank province map, so that I can update my fancy Map that shows portrait DLC packs?
Would be greatly appreciated. :)

Could you give us pictures of the cultural setup in the middle east and over to the edge of the map? I know you've posted this before, but there have been map changes since you did.
The next expansion will cover something a lot of people have asked for.
Is it Justinian?
Seriously though, it's probably either inland republics, or a redo of Africa.

They are the new names of Khiva and Afghanistan, with map changes of course.

We've had "<Secret DLC>" and "<Mystery DLC>" as public codenames before (if ai remember correctly). Can you tell us the public codename for the post-JD DLC?
