Big boi.

Crusader Kings 3 puts the grand in grand strategy with so many moving parts that it’s no wonder players have been reporting exploits and bugs like there’s no tomorrow. While nothing is particularly game-breaking about Crusader Kings 3 in its current state, that hasn’t stopped Paradox from fixing just a gigantic laundry list of issues ahead of 1.1.

Seriously, the changelog for 1.1 is so long that I actually gave my scrolling finger cramp while trying to read them all. I’m not being dramatic here, Crusader Kings 3 1.1 is quite the substantial update, maybe one of the biggest I have ever seen.


Crusader Kings 3 1.1: What’s Changed?

Quick thing, these loading screens? Love ’em.

What hasn’t changed is the more pertinent question. Some of the headlining tweaks should change the gameplay experience dramatically, hopefully for the better.

The biggest change will now make it a lot harder for you to overextend your personal domain. Instead of just brute forcing your way through your domain limit penalties and taking the levies and income hit, players will now have a 100% penalty for going over the limit.

If you thought The Mongol Empire were a little weak, Paradox have beefed them up much more. Now, they will attack several times per year and will be much more powerful to boot. On top of that, weak realms will allow themselves to be subjugated by the Mongols much more freely. I am scared.

Those are probably the two biggest changes in 1.1, but there’s so much to parse from the upcoming patch that it’s hard to know where to start. Holdings have been broadly tweaked in terms of costs, overpowered abduction schemes have been nerfed, piety earnings and penalties have been changed, AI armies are less likely to do dumb things, and even the UI has seen updates.
