Crusader Kings 3 Update 1.5.1 has arrived, adding several new events and improving royal courts with better lighting and the addition of new models for several artifacts such as the Throne of Solomon.

First announced in late 2019, Crusader Kings 3 had a fairly strong first year and launched its first major expansion. Paradox Interactive has continued to develop the game since then, adding new features and improving existing ones. Now, a new update has arrived with some new events and improvements to the royal court.

What's New in Crusader Kings 3 Update 1.5.1?

The first major addition in Crusader Kings 3 Update 1.5.1 is several new events. Paradox Interactive is reluctant to spoil all of them before players can actually see them for themselves, but those of you who are curious can check out five of the new events in the latest developer blog. Over a dozen new events have been added to the game, and several of these events are annual.

Several graphical improvements are also coming to royal courts with this update. Lighting has been revised for these grand halls, adding richer shadows and better coloring to many of these scenes. Additionally, several Artifacts have new world models that will allow them to be displayed in the royal court, including several swords and the absolutely massive Throne of Solomon.

Of course, this update also has a boatload of balance changes and bugfixes; you can read about all of the new content and changes in the full Crusader Kings 3 Update 1.5.1 patch notes. You can join in on the palace intrigue and conquer the world by buying Crusader Kings 3 for PC starting at $49.99 or your regional equivalent via its official website.
