Crusader Kings 3 Release Date Australia
The Crusader Kings 3 Release date Australia has is September 2 2020.
Update 9/9/2020: If you are just reading this story now, you can mostly ignore the original content below, the game is available on Steam today 🙂
The Crusader Kings 3 Release Date Australia had was delayed due to a classification issue between Paradox and the government department who classifies video game ratings in Australia.
In a recent tweet by Paradox regarding the delay they said “Currently the sales of CK3 in Australia & New Zealand are halted as we are investigating matters having to do with age ratings. We’re working on resolving this as soon as possible and Paradox will honor already placed pre-orders. Thanks for your understanding & patience.”
I can see the game is still not available in Steam. Has Paradox said anything else?
Regarding the Crusader Kings 3 Release date Australia has being delayed, Paradox has publicly posted in their forums about the delay, currently according to the post there, the issue in New Zealand has been resolved and is now available. However, the game is still not available in Australia because they haven’t been able to resolve the classification with the review board for video games.
A copy of the initial post is pasted below, but if you are super keen for the game, I noticed Paradox has been keeping that thread updated so I recommend just clicking through to read the forum for updates. You can find the forum thread right here.

[EDIT: August 21, 2020]:
The situation in New Zealand has now been resolved. Preorders will resume as usual. We will keep our Australian community updated with development as soon as possible.
[EDIT: August 26, 2020]:
We are still working to make the game available for purchase for the Australian audience, but unfortunately we do not expect this situation to be resolved before the global release. Making the pre-order bonuses available for anyone in the affected territories that might have missed out is also part of these investigations. Already placed pre-orders will be honored from Paradox side
[EDIT: September 1, 2020]
If you have the game in your Steam library, you will be able to download it upon release.“
What is Crusader Kings 3?
Crusader Kings 3 is a grand strategy game in which players can explore medieval Europe and play as one of the political members of the time. I have spent countless hours with Crusader Kings 2 and I can say that there’s a lot of micromanagement of your kingdom and your family that can be expected in the game. It is one of the most advanced simulations of this type of game I have experienced and Crusader Kings 3 builds on what Crusader Kings 2 was and apparently is even better. However, I’ve not played it yet, so I am not sure, I’ve just watched too much of their marketing I guess.
Is there a trailer for the game I can watch?
Yes, you can watch a trailer for Crusader Kings 3 below.
I will try to update this post as more news emerges about what Crusader Kings 3 Release Date Australia has become after this debacle.
