Paradox Interactive

Magicka: Wizard Wars has been available through Steam's Early Access program since October and it's been seeing updates at least once a week. Updates ranging from small bug fixes, to big new additions. A lot of these updates...
Another new announcement from the Paradox Convention this week is Hearts of Iron IV, a new grand strategy World War II war-game. You can play as any country that existed during the World War II time period, from Puerto Rico ...
Paradox has announced a new game today during their 2014 Paradox Convention and surprise, it's not a grand strategy title! The game is called Runemaster, and it's a role-playing game based on Norse mythology. Three playable ...
Get ready for some new features in Europa Universalis IV, Paradox's massive grand strategy game, because it's getting an expansion soon. Conquest of Paradise will focus on adding better mechanics for both sides of the conque...
War of the Vikings has been in its alpha phase for quite some time, but publisher Paradox has informed us that the game has now been upgraded to a beta. You'll find new maps, modes and other extras accompanying this change, ...
Critical Studio and Paradox Interactive have tweaked the action-RPG Dungeonland to support a free-to-play model, opening access to portions of the game. The DM Tower stage is now unlocked for regular play and the DM Mode in w...
Despite having a slim grasp of history, Fraser Brown's review of Europa Universalis IV really intrigued me. In it, he says that Paradox has made this latest edition really user-friendly and approachable to "the grubby masses....
We've seen footage of Magicka: Wizard Wars previously, and some have been playing the alpha for the competitive multiplayer take on the 2011 element-combining "cooperative" adventure. Today, the Early Access version is avail...
If you're itching to get your warcry on in Paradox Interactive's War of the Vikings, its Steam Early Access program starts today. Provided you're willing to plunk down for the game, you can access an early build right now, an...
I've really come to appreciate Paradox Interactive's willingness to be frank. And its work on games that, while niche and not really my scene, are a welcome addition to the industry at large. The company is no stranger to sup...
When I reviewed The Showdown Effect back in March, I absolutely loved it. Arrowhead are just great at making silly, fun titles. But within my review was a nagging doubt, the worry that it wouldn't be able to maintain the nece...
Paradox Interactive is a publishing machine. It's dabbling in just about every genre under the sun, and now, the company is taking on third-person action in the form of War of the Vikings -- a PC title set to arrive sometime in 2014. It's a bit rough around the edges, but as an action fan, I really appreciated the attention to the tactical nuances that made the games' combat so deep.
The latest Humble Weekly Sale is a cracker, putting up a bunch of Paradox Interactive's biggest titles. Pay what you want and you'll get War of the Roses (along with access to the War of the Vikings alpha), Warlock: Mast...
I've just united Italy after over a century of bloody conflicts. From Doge of The Serene Republic of Venice to the first King of Italy -- it's quite the step up. Along the way, I've upset the gargantuan Holy Roman Empire, gon...
Fatshark is applying the War of the Roses framework to a related -- but standalone, it should be pointed out -- combat game called War of the Vikings. Yes, the name pretty much says it all. You in? Skirmishes will take place...
Teleglitch, released late last year, is quite a wonderful roguelike. It's also really incredibly difficult. Like, "good luck getting to level five" difficult. So when I heard about an upgraded version titled "Die More Edition," I got pretty frightened. How much harder could it get? Way harder.
Europa Universalis IV, one of my most anticipated releases of the year, is only a fortnight away. As we enter August, the final pre-order bonus has been revealed by Paradox Interactive, and it's a doozy: a free copy of Crusad...
Paradox North's team-based, player-versus-player game Magicka: Wizard Wars has shown itself off previously, but never in motion like this. The real-time spellcasting of Magicka was already deadly in so-called "cooperative" p...
Europa Universalis IV is but a mere month away from release, but Paradox isn't finished with filling you in on the game's many nuances. In the latest dev diary, Project Lead Thomas Johansson describes the complex religious m...
Join me in feeling less awful about missing out on Teleglitch now that developer T3P has partnered with Paradox Interactive for an expanded version of this overhead roguelike shooter. A free upgrade for existing players, Die...
I absolutely love it when games add crazy things that are completely unnecessary and utterly amusing. Paradox have decided to add a "Jazz Mode" to Leviathan: Warships, a game that doesn't actually have anything to do with ja...
After spending two whole days playing Europa Universalis IV in Stockholm last month, Paradox's flagship grand strategy title has become one of my most anticipated upcoming games. The Swedish studio recently announced a ...
Paradox Development Studios' grand strategy titles are not known for their multiplayer, but the Swedish developer is working hard to change this. Way back in cold January, I had the opportunity to spend a couple of hours with...
I do not play Crusader Kings II and I expect that I would be exceptionally bad at doing so. It is for these two reasons that I would normally have breezed right by this trailer for the new "Old Gods" expansion released ...
Throughout the many competitive multiplayer matches of Leviathan: Warships I've played, I've shown a great deal of restraint. No matter how many vessels I lost, I refused to utter the words of defeat that so many ha...
The pagans are almost upon us as Crusader Kings II: The Old Gods gets closer to release. To mark the upcoming launch of this expansion, Paradox Interactive is offering folks the chance to create their own event, which will a...
Over the last year and -- almost -- a half, Crusader Kings II has grown considerably. What started of as a vast grand strategy game where players could take the reins of a Christian noble dynasty now contains playable Islamic...
It seems as if we haven't heard from the folks at Paradox North about Magicka: Wizard Wars for ages, but here we are with fresh screenshots, showing off the game in action. Set to combine the humor of the Magicka franchise wi...
With the Elder Kings mod you can now bring the rich world of The Elder Scrolls into Crusader Kings II. Everyone from Argonians, Dunmer, Nords, Falmer, Khajit, Bosmer, and the Empire are here and playable in Paradox Devel...
To call Victoria II dense would be a gross understatement. It's a pound cake, with each ingredient -- the tangled politics, vast wars, and simulated economies -- adding greater depth and increasingly complex, interweaving sys...
I've been fiddling around with the mobile meta-RPG Knights of Pen & Paper for a wee while now. In fact, it's one of the few games I actually play on my phone, normally preferring dedicated handheld gaming devices rat...
I'll admit, I had expected that the novelty would have worn off from the last smooth jazz trailer for the naval warfare strategy game Leviathan: Warships. Still, I started watching the above video and halfway through was chu...
With Europa Universalis IV -- which is looking pretty groovy so far -- launching in Q3 of this year, Paradox Interactive are sending out a call to arms to fans of the series. Now, before you grab a pike or a musket (I know y...
I don't have a driving license, and, strictly speaking, can't drive. I had lessons over a decade ago, but I never really saw the point. The narrow roads and strict speed limits in the UK prohibit one from truly enjoying the a...
Okay Paradox, nice job with this trailer. It did its job, as made me pay attention and even write about Leviathan: Warships on Dtoid. Not that we haven't written about it before. In fact our own Fraser Brown went hands-on wi...
Next to Hearts of Iron, the Victoria series is the Paradox Interactive grand strategy title I have the least experience with. There are a couple of things that have contributed to this, but the most influential one is my decl...
When it comes down to it, all grand strategy is about romance and singing, so it makes perfect sense that Paradox Interactive is taking the Europa Universalis franchise to the next level by making a musical.  "Like most...
Knights of Pen & Paper, last year's tactile meta-RPG for mobile devices, is getting a new edition and will be making its way to Mac, PC, and Linux in Q2 of this year. Paradox Interactive and Behold Studios have joined fo...
No game of Magicka is complete without a ruined friendship or two. Fellow wizards have a way of getting in between monsters and fatal spells, and it's always their fault, never yours. The latest iteration of the Magicka seri...
War of the Roses, Paradox and Fatshark's medieval multiplayer combat title, has gotten a new edition: War of the Roses: Kingmaker. This premium version comes with all previous DLC treats along with some new maps and the assau...
