NEW YORK — January 21, 2013 — Paradox Interactive, a publisher of games and a host of forums dedicated to those games, today announced that its official Paradox forums have reached over 500,000 subscribers worldwide. To date, over half a million loyal gamers have signed up to follow the news from Paradox and get into heated conversations about robots, crusades, and accidental wizard-based explosions. To celebrate this milestone, five lucky forum subscribers will be awarded every game that Paradox publishes – and will ever publish in the future. All existing forum subscribers will also receive a little something in their inboxes.

Paradox is also marking the occasion by offering those 500,000 gamers, plus millions more worldwide, an all-new web-based game store, where players can buy the latest Paradox titles directly from the publisher. The new store will offer a variety of Paradox’s hits, such as Magicka, War of the Roses, Europa Universalis III, and more. A sale to celebrate the opening of the new store will offer customers a 55% discount on several selections from Paradox’s catalog. To take advantage of the inaugural offer, visit the official Paradox Interactive website at, choose a game from the catalog, and click the "BUY" tab to procure a digital copy.

“Since the early years when our fans would get together and compare battle plans for our grand strategy games, our community has been defined by their passion,” said Fredrik Wester, CEO of Paradox Interactive. “We got our start in strategy and those games continue to drive forum conversations, whether they’re tearing us apart because of a few historical liberties taken in Crusader Kings, or telling us they can’t wait for some of our newer action titles like Dungeonland or The Showdown Effect. Our sincere thanks to all 500,000 of you loyal lunatics.”
