Version 1.10 came with DLC Wards & Wardens

DLC Wards & Wardens after month of release has mixed reviews and cost 4,99 € or $ on Steam market.

The Wards & Wardens flavor pack expands the childhood stage for characters in Crusader Kings III, adding new depth through events focused on developing relationships between wards and guardians. For child characters, new events cover forming childhood friendships, getting into mischief, and shaping personality traits. Guardians now have more options to guide or misguide their wards’ upbringing based on their own inclinations. Regencies also see expanded events, with some regents mentoring the child ruler, while corrupt ones may exploit their influence.

The DLC includes new animations, music, and art assets to depict childhood scenes and activities, like reading books or training with wooden swords. For guardians, options like adopting children or taking defeated rulers’ heirs as hostages are now available. The DLC aims to make your ruler’s early years more impactful on their eventual reign. Even without the DLC, free updates added features like perpetual hooks between dynasties and new personality traits. But Wards & Wardens greatly expands the role of guardianship in shaping the next generation of noble heirs through childhood events.
