Europa Universalis III Summary
Paradox has been the soul of historical computer strategy gaming and with Europa Universalis 3 it proves to remain so for years to come.
As, Paradox Interactive is the focus of this week's Humble Bundle Weekly Sale, featuring some of the publisher's best-selling titles.
EA's Humble Origin Bundle drew to a close with a whopping $10.5 million raised for charitable causes, which included the Human Rights Campaign, Watsi, the San Francisco AIDS Foundation and more.
Over 2.1 million bundles sold. Now Paradox Interactive are announcing the Humble Paradox Bundle "will go live today," from 8 p.m. CEST (11 a.m. PDT). $125 gets you everything.
Twenty-two seconds of cool looking logo is all we get in a quick fire teaser trailer from Paradox Interactive. There's nothing else provided so fans only have the logo to work off to fuel rampant speculation.
The logo art itself features a bird, possibly a Raven, that's clutching a sword which has a snake wrapping around it biting itself - ouch. That's set against three quarters of a circular emblem.
Paradox Interactive has announced that empire-building in Europa Universalis IV will commence August 13th, with pre-orders available on practically every digital platform that exists in the universe.
They also detail some pre-order bonuses with a 100 Years War unit pack, and two others to be named. However an Extreme Edition also includes three content packs.
During a speech at GameHorizon last month, Paradox CEO Fredrik Wester discussed what its like at the publisher and how they've positioned themselves as a success story relying on the niche markets.
Paradox has thrived off a community that's felt 'brushed aside' by the mainstream. Wester cautioned small devs not to stray from fans that 'fit the profile' of your studio, or you risk losing them.
