Crusader Kings 3’s Update 1.5 Adds the Carantanian

Crusader Kings is a grand strategy and historical simulation game developed by Paradox Development Studio and published by Paradox Interactive. It allows players to control a civilization from the Middle Ages to the Renaissance in a sandbox-style, and lets them create their own history by ruling a kingdom. Crusader Kings 3 is an expansion to the game, adding a number of new features and gameplay options while also introducing a new campaign of the game. It was released on February 7, 2017 in North America, February 10, 2017 in Australia, and on February 11, 2017 in Europe.

Crusader Kings 2 is a strategy game that’s been out for a while now, and it’s had its fair share of expansions. But one of the more recent additions to the series is called the Carantanian, and it’s a good one. It adds new features to the game as well as new ways to play.

Crusader Kings 3’s Update 1.5 Adds the Carantanian is a free patch for the game that adds Carantania to the game.

Update 1.5 for Crusader Kings 3 will substantially alter Paradox’s grand strategy game with a combination of big and small improvements. The newest development diary looks into a few of the latter, including the reintroduction of Carantanian culture and a few India map changes.

CK3’s Carantanian culture, which was a fan favorite in the previous installment, “is very widespread on game start and spans much of south-eastern Bavaria,” according to the developer.

“The culture has a west slavic background, but when they grew isolated from their original brothers in the Carpathian Basin, they became more akin to the south slavic peoples. Carantanian represents this by having a West Slavic ancestry yet speaking a South Slavic language “67 people have read this developer diary.

India is set to get a number of changes as part of the forthcoming cultural overhaul, which should make its part of the map more intriguing. According to Paradox, Crusader Kings III inherited its predecessor’s structure in the area, which “was in some respects not completely suitable for our period.”

Players will discover a handful of new cultures, minor modifications to some of the existing ones, and “a vast number of possible culture names for when the big beginning civilizations split” after Crusader Kings III’s Update 1.5 is released.

The Hindustandi and Rajput cultures will be subdivided into smaller subcultures. The former stays available when an Iranian or Turkic civilization hybridizes with one of its north Indian equivalents.

According to the developer journal, “the major portion of the culture spans the Gangetic plain, and is today known as Kannauji after the Imperial city of Kannauj (Kanyakubja), which was the region’s greatest treasure and frequently gave its name to it.”

“The newly added Gond culture has been formed out of regions that were formerly Hindustani, Marathi, or Oriya, beginning in the central portions of India. The Cedi monarchy controls the majority of Gond counties in 1066, and many of these counties are tribal from the outset. This culture encompasses an area that was formerly located in an unusual location, on the cusp of many civilizations but not exactly belonging to any of them.”

The Malvi culture, which shares the Gurjar language with its Rajasthani and Gujarati counterparts, will live on the Malwa plateau and “several of the surrounding areas that were formerly deemed Hindustani.” The Rajput culture of CK3 will be renamed Rajasthani, while Assamese will be called Kamrupi.

In order to make the titles more suitable for Crusader Kings III’s start dates, several of India’s baronies “have been renamed and restructured into new counties, and a number of new vassals have been written in, particularly for the 1066 start.”

This should result in “a greater number of beginning characters, both independent and vassals,” as well as the majority of monarchs not exceeding their domain limit at the start of the game.

More information on the improvements can be found in the development diary linked above, as well as in our previous May preview of what Update 1.5 and the Royal Court expansion will bring to Crusader Kings III.
