Following the release of Crusader Kings 3 a few days ago there has been some confusion as to whether or not the game is available for the Xbox Game Pass. The team at Microsoft has been keen to advertise its availability, but it turns out that not everyone will be able to play the game.
Is Crusader Kings 3 on the Xbox Game Pass?
Yes, Crusader Kings 3 is currently available on Xbox Game Pass. However, it’s only available on Game Pass for PC. You cannot access the game on an Xbox One.
Users of the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate service (which goes for $14.99 a month) technically have access to the game. The Ultimate service provides access to the regular service as well as some games only available on PC. Still, you can’t play it on an Xbox One.
Is Crusader Kings 3 coming to Xbox One?
Simply put, no. Crusader Kings 3, much like its two predecessors, has released exclusively for the PC. Only Windows or Linux users can play the medieval strategy game.
In fact, Crusader Kings 3 is available on fewer platforms than previous series releases. Both the 2004 original and its 2012 sequel were available for MacOS. The third game is not available for Mac, nor is it available on the Xbox One or any other consoles.
What else is on Xbox Game Pass this month?
Xbox Game Pass subscribers on console do have some other big games to enjoy. The biggest games coming are arguably Destiny 2, complete with all its expansions, and Resident Evil 7.
Drake Hollow, The Jackbox Party 4, Touhou Luna Heights, Tell Me Why Chapters 2 and 3, as well as Hotshot Racing round out the list of new games playable on Xbox One.
For the PC Game Pass, there are a few new games in addition to Crusader Kings 3. World War Z and Star Renegade are coming to the service, as well as Disgaea 4 Complete+.
There’s plenty to enjoy on Game Pass this month. Unfortunately, players on an Xbox One will not be able to enjoy Crusader Kings 3. This one is for PC players only.
