Crusader Kings 3 – Royal Court Expansion Development Diaries
Crusader Kings 3 Patch 1.5 / Royal Court – To Combine or Split Up Cultures to Create your own
We will be able to create an own culture not only by creating a wholly new one but by combining two existing cultures, preferrably in our realm, to create a Hybrid Culture that has – also unique – elements of the two root cultures. It will also work the other way round: You will be able to split up your own culture if you don’t want to be part of a great culture anymore, giving it a unique twist. In both cases the obvious advantage will be that you will become the Culture Head – but that’s not all there is to it. Learn more here:
Crusader Kings 3 Patch 1.5 / Royal Court: Culture Changes everything!
The changes to Culture will come with a free patch. We will now be able to define a culture of our own, comprised of five Pillars – Heritage, Ethos, Language, Martial Tradition and Aesthetics. This can and will deliver many interesting bonuses for gameplay. Additionally, on an even more specific level, we will have traditions that we as a Cultural Head can choose for said cultures. Their prestige cost is higher or lower depending on how much they fit the Pillars of Culture. A defined culture will also have Cultural Acceptance with Cultures that are similar to it or whose members have friendly relations towards each other and which live in the same realm. Animosities will, on the other hand, decrease Cultural Acceptance.
