The Third Crusader Kings: Journeys and Journeys

The Third Crusader Kings It is getting a new expansion called Tours and tournamentsAnd which is similar to the last major update of the game, Royal Courtgeared more towards the character and RPG aspect of the game than its broader strategic content.

There is a lot of information about it herebut mainly:

With assembling an entourage, selecting your travel options, and hiring a caravan master, you are ready to hit the road and travel to activities around the world. The travel system is integral to the activities, as both the host and guests travel to get to them – creating a stronger sense of place as you see your path being drawn and your character moving directly on the map.

The expansion will add three main events for you to travel to: Grand Tournaments, Grand Weddings, and Grand Tours, each allowing you to show off in your world, meet people, and give the player more menus prompting you to choose a dialogue/action option.

It will be released in Late Spring.
