If you have a whole lot of free time this weekend I've got just the ticket: a Steam Free Weekend for Crusader Kings III and some discounts across other Paradox titles.

Coming in the Paradox Publisher Week you can download and play Crusader Kings III without paying a penny until Monday, May 13th. If you decide you like it the game is also on sale with 60% off until May 23rd.


I love the ruler designer, so much customization! All hail Liam! He's had it rough.

It's a great time to play it too with update 1.12.5 just being released that includes a newly updated express tutorial, to get you into the main game a bit quicker while still showing you the ropes. The older longer tutorial is also still available though.

On top of that the third major expansion, Roads to Power, is due out later this year with a "massive" free update. More on that in the dev diary.

Plus lots of good deals on other Paradox titles like:

Victoria 3 - 76% off

Stellaris - 70% off

Hearts of Iron IV - 70% off

Cities: Skylines - 70% off

Europa Universalis IV - 70% off

And for those of you terrified at the thought of how many DLC each game has, a whole lot of them are on sale too so you can begin to complete your collection for a whole lot less. All games noted here have Native Linux support.

With all the DLCs their games hare I vant help but compare them to drug dealers - yeah at rare occasions you can get a great deal or maybe a small free try depending on the drug, but spirals out of control soon after

I get bored of games long before the DLC stream stops. I haven't played Stellaris for a quite a while now, so I can't easily justify of buying more DLC. New content would be otherwise tempting. I don't remember when I would have bough cosmetic DLC, but at least Stellaris doesn't have lot of DLC going into that category.
