  • 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.

This expansion sounds really good. Seems like some of my suggestions in the past got a place into the game :) Most interested in park zoning and tourism enhancements and looking forward to the dev diaries :)

If this is an official announcement, then why is it posted here and not where I expect to find it, in Official News and Announcements sub forum?
And what is this "forum avatars and forum icon!" nonsense for pre-ordering? Is that really considered an incentive?
Which leads me to ask, is there any way to remove all of these avatars and icons? This has been bugging me for quite some time.
While I'm at it, is there a way to remove this silly military rank too?

for some odd reson I like the icons.. And as you can see under my avatar it is possible to remove the military rank. But I can´t say I remember where.

Great news :)

Cities Skylines gets better each day, but it's lack of some...sport fields (tennis, baseball, etc). Is it planned in this expansion ? :)

Hi, I'm a little confused.
I called Steam directly and had all DLC´s listed there, first of all there was the new "Parklive" but there is nothing from Parklive Plus, only when you call the DLC yourself you get "Parklive" and "Parklive Plus".

Now I have pre-ordered Parklive via the DLC overview, what do I get Parklive or Parklive Plus?

What is the difference? and if there are differences then I want to buy the Parklive Plus and not just Parklive.

Request an explanation, either from Paradox Interactive or Colossal Order

I can't wait!

Yes! This looks great! The biggest issue I have (unless all-in with mods) is having to deal with empty space, or trying to make 'something' that is not just buildings. This is perfect.

This looks very promising, indeed - but still, so many questions.

It says 'buildings' wrt. what you can plop down next to paths. Are there limitations here? Does this include regular zoned buildings (i.e. RCI) or service buildings with vehicles (Fire Stations, etc)?

Will footpaths still auto-delete at the slightest provocation (as in, overwriting/overbuilding), or will they be as sturdy as regular roads? My dream here is a toggle between the current mode and a 'sturdier' one, for easy footpath construction.

Since footpaths are a big part of this expansion - is there any chance we'll get a single-tile footpath 'spiral' staircase tower structure? I'm hoping for an easy way to create an urban bridge across a busy road here, with minimal footprint.

Will parks built in the 'empty spaces' between buildings require at least one footpath or street connection (so cims can reach them)?

Will there be farm fields following the same rules as the new free-form parks, or is that more of a future expansion thing?

If the new features are what I hope they are... RIP grid cities; I can finally create bendies without feeling inefficient.


Looking forward to stream on Friday; I'm assuming Zeke's Art Corner will take a closer look at an expansion build, now that it has been announced? :p

Oh my god, I believe this is going to be the best expansion pack of the whole lot - I cannot wait! I've been asking for this sort of thing since launch!

If we got an expansion after this one using the same kind of tools (the district zoning) but focusing on expanding the industrial / blue-collar aspect (e.g. agriculture / oil fields etc), the game will then be perfect for me.
It would be great to have a agriculture/ oil / other rural industries expansion using that district zoning mechanic. Farms should be able to have big fields. Could also use that tool for just general industrial zones, it would allow big factories to spawn. I have always felt that these tight, small industrial zones don't feel realistic enough.

@Paradox ... why are both versions of the Parklife DLC the same price in Euros, but in the UK the Plus version is more expensive? This is terrible discrimination.
