Paradox Interactive are celebrating the 20th anniversary of the Europa Universalis series so they're giving away Europa Universalis II and putting a bunch of other games on sale.

For the free game, simply head to GOG.com and find the big banner. It doesn't support Linux like Paradox's later games, since it's a proper classic from way back in 2001 but you can try your luck with the Wine compatibility layer if you really want it.

GOG have a big list of Paradox titles here that are currently on sale, which has some of the most popular mopdern Paradox strategy games going, along with some of their earlier games.

They also have them in bundles:

The GOG / Paradox sale runs until October 24, if you buy 3 or more titles you get an extra 10% off on top of the existing discounts.

Paradox and their Paradox Development Studio are also doing a big celebratory livestream on Twitch. Sounds like they have plenty of secret projects ongoing.

Silly question: i suppose you cannot buy a discounted DLC for stellaris on GOG and have it work on your steam version of stellaris.

Edit: After a quick search on the GOG forums, the short answer is no.

Can anyone explain to me why in the Imperator Rome bundle there is the Base game and then the Deluxe Edition of the game? AND the Deluxe Edition upgrade? Doesnt make sense to me.

I know, but it is in the headline of "gaming on linux" and is only Win. So at least it is very old and *may* work with Wine. So not interesting enough IMHO to be the headliner.

It does work in Wine. I tried it for a whole minute, just for you!

(And it is "gaming on linux", not "native gaming on linux" )

We often point out things that aren't entirely native to Linux, especially when it comes to much older free games like this. And as has been pointed out, this is gaming on Linux. If it can be done on Linux somehow, we may (not always ofc) write about it.

Also, it really helps to read the article.

  • Some people don't own it, and want the normal edition

  • some people don't own it, and want the deluxe edition

  • some people already own the normal edition, and want to upgrade to deluxe
