Right now Gamestop is throwing a fairly large sale for many of their PC games both in-store and off their digital distribution app (what used to be Impulse). Besides the differing amounts of money you can save on such titles like Borderlands, Arkham City, and Deus Ex: Human Revolution there’s also another sale going on completely devoted to Paradox Interactive. Until May 14th all you Paradox fans can find virtually find every game and DLC/expansion the developer has made for 50% off (except Crusader Kings II and Naval War: Arctic Circle). Titles like Hearts of Iron III, Europa Universalis III, Magicka, Elven Legacy, and King Arthur can be found for under $15 at the most but a majority of the games you’ll find are well below that.
If you’ve ever wanted to explore the world of detailed grand strategy games or some of the other types of games Paradox makes this is the perfect time to snag anything and everything you wanted of theirs. Personally I picked up Europa Universalis 3: Chronicles (includes the main game and all four expansions), all the sprite packs for EU3, Commander: Conquest of the Americas, and the two bits of DLC content for Commander all for under $40.
Don’t forget – this sale also applies to physical copies sold in their stores so if you want to maybe snag one of these PC games so you can have the disc copy you’ll find everything for the same price there (plus you’ll be able to use trade-in credit or cash to make your purchase).
Until Monday April 23rd PC gamers can get their hands on the entire Mount & Blade collection for only $7.50 off of Steam.
Normally $30, the collection contains the original Mount & Blade, the expansion Mount & Blade: Warband, and Mount & Blade: With Fire and Sword – another expansion set within the world of Nobel-Prize winning author Henry Sienkiewicz’s novel of the same name.
For those of you out there wondering what M&B actually is the series is more-or-less a combination of RPG and strategy elements. Creating a character, the player gets dropped into the fictional medieval world of Calradia and then given the freedom to go anywhere and do anything they like. The game gives you a wide enough berth to be whatever you wish from a murderous bandit, a wealthy land-owner, a fiercely loyal soldier, a traveling adventurer, or even a great general who creates, trains, and leads massive armies into battle. The game is devoid of any kind of story so its up to the player to forge their own destiny however they choose to.
Today Paradox Interactive announced the official beginning to the pre-order stage for their upcoming medieval strategy/RPG game Crusader Kings II.
Those of you out there that pre-order the game will receive not one but three bonuses: a full copy of Crusader Kings: Complete and the Mongolian Families and Dynasty Shield DLCs for absolutely free (see below for more info).
