Paradox has confirmed that same-sex concubine mods are returning to Crusader Kings 3. On a similar note, same-sex marriage mods are also on the way, although they'll take a while longer to arrive.
While same-sex relationships were a part of Crusader Kings 3 since launch, players had to resort to using mods if they wanted a playthrough that allowed same-sex concubines. Last month's Corvus Update 1.3 broke these mods, but the publisher has been aware of the issue and is working on a fix.
"Our commitment to providing more in-game options for same-sex relationships hasn’t changed since we first commented on this last month. We said we were looking into it, and we did, so good news there: same-sex concubines should be moddable in the game in an upcoming patch prior to 1.4, and we should have same-sex marriage moddable by 1.4 if everything goes as planned," reads a post on the game's forums.
The news that same-sex marriages are coming to Crusader Kings 3, even if only through mods, is notable. Modders haven't been able to implement it thus far, although the previous entry in the series allowed them to do so.
"It was never our intention or direct goal to disable the feature. It was just a code by-product of a technical and unrelated issue that needed correcting. It has certainly caused some concern, but we are getting there," Community Manager PDX_Pariah said when asked why the same-sex concubine mods were disabled in the first place. No dates were given for either of the patches.
