Here’s the latest on the price roll-back. Sorry for the wait, as you might imagine this is a somewhat complicated process so thank you for your patience whilst we sorted this out:
Prices on all Paradox products, in all currencies except USD (since USD prices were not changed), have reverted back to their pre-increase levels as of today. Additionally, now the price rollback has been completed prices will be frozen for a period of three months.
After exploring options with our sales partners, we’ve come to the conclusion that partial refunds (as in, refunding the price difference) aren’t practically possible. Instead, we will gift everyone who purchased any Paradox product between May 17 and today (including pre-orders of Steel Division: Normandy 44 made before May 17), in any currency except USD (where prices were not changed), a free copy of a full PC game or two DLC, as a gesture of goodwill.
The games on offer will be:
Hearts of Iron IV
Crusader Kings 2
Europa Universalis IV
OR, if you prefer, TWO from the list of the following DLC:
HoI IV: Death or Dishonor
EU IV: Third Rome
CK II: Monks and Mystics
Tyranny: Tales from the Tiers
Should you happen to already own all of the above then the system will credit you equivalent giftable keys.
