Update on Australian and New Zealand pre-orders [EDIT: September 7, 2020]

Update on Australian and New Zealand pre-orders [EDIT: September 7, 2020]

  • 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.

Paradox needs to hurry up if they have the rating then why can i still not purchase it
you have to wait for the ABR (Australian Board of Ratings) to officially Rate, then send the sign off to Paradox, then Paradox needs to reach out to steam with the Rating Proof.

It should hopefully be done as soon as possible.

The Australian Classification website has updated the 18/8/2020 entry to be MA15+ (Strong drug use), and the earlier record has been removed, which suggests all the pending and placeholder stuff is done with and this is the proper decision.

And... in fairness to them, there's a banner on the site warning that maintenance on the National Classification Database is underway, that's been there for at least the last few days.

Looks like we can now buy the game on the Paradox store, but nothing on Pre-order bonuses.
Still not available on Steam yet. Perhaps that's what they're trying to work out?

I still can't buy the game directly from the Paradox store. It says it's still unavailable in my region.

Never thought trying to hand over $100 would be this difficult.

I will wait on advice on Pre-order before I buy...

Greetings!

Players in Australia are now able to purchase, install, and enjoy Crusader Kings III moving forward on Microsoft Store and Paradox Store. In addition, Game Pass access will also now resume! Go forth and forge your kingdom to tell your own story! Steam will resume its sales a few hours after this post (in the middle of the night for our Australian readers).

In regards to the pre-order bonuses, we have decided to extend the Pre-Order Bonus window only on Steam for all our Australian fans until Monday Sep. 21, 19:00 CEST. This way you too will get a chance to don the Garments of the Holy Roman Empire!

I am excited at the opportunity to purchase the game on steam. However, there better be a more detailed official explanation of what occurred and why. Just because the game is now being released doesn't absolve Paradox of their duty to inform us exactly why this occurred.

I don't see why you consider it a duty. Chances are the scuffle with the ratings board is entirely classified.

Thanks guys. I imagine this was quite the hassle for you guys, especially after game launch, so thanks for getting it resolved so quickly.
