According to developer Paradox Interactive, Crusader Kings 3 will be revealing its first major piece of downloadable content next month.
Crusader Kings 3 is a grand strategy game about medieval dynastic politics. Unlike other grand strategy games like Civilization or Total War, in the Crusader Kings series the player takes control of the head of a dynasty, instead of a country. Part of the game isn't just the player expanding and defending territory, but also preserving their dynasty and securing heirs and beneficial marriages. This includes, as of an upcoming patch, adding same sex marriages into the game properly.

According to the developer's most recent developer diary the theme of Crusader Kings 3's new expansion will be revealed at next month's PDXCon, a convention dedicated to Paradox Interactive and its games.
So far, Paradox has already released one minor DLC for Crusader Kings 3, a flavor pack that adds new features for rulers of Norse culture. In Crusader Kings 2, DLC would often focus on updating specific cultures, religions, or areas of the map and making them playable. The Sword of Islam DLC made Islamic rulers playable, The Old Gods made pagans playable, and Rajas of India expanded the map to include India.
Of course, in Crusader Kings 3, all those groups were already playable from the start, and the game map already includes India. Many players are hoping that Paradox will expand the map to include China and East Asia. While others are hoping to see places like the Eastern Roman Empire get an updated form of government. Whatever the DLC happens to be, dedicated Crusader Kings players will no doubt be excited to see how it will expand the Crusader Kings 3 experience.
