They've said it's going to be available for around $12.99/£10.29. If you're interested you can follow it on Steam and the Paradox Store for now.

So according to the trailer, very little happens at universities except sports. Very American.

Indeed. This whole announcement feels quite odd, especially coming from a Finnish developer and a Swedish publisher. I guess they're just catering to their typical user.

And their typical user is?

Because from what I see on youtube for example a LOT of people on their are from the UK. And if you look at the steam workshop there is more asian and european type thing than american. I'd personally say that there typical user is very cosmopolitan.

Definitely would not call that an "expansion" but rather a DLC and helps turn me off ever being interested in trying out their game, not until they're done with all these mini pieces of their game. Hopefully it doesn't end up being a confusing clusterfuck after they're done with adding all these bits and the game ends up being well-balanced and fun.

Definitely not what I would have picked to expand on, but I hope it provides interesting new strategies.

Wonder what a paradox game like the sims would feel like.

It looks like those parodies of universities you see in US teen movies !

Just dipping my toes into this game, but I'm finding all the DLC that's available to be a little discouraging. That's one thing I definitely don't like about Paradox games.

This video showcasing the universities in-game is quite promising. I thought I didn't want it two days ago because I have played it too much already, but I am reconsidering at the moment.
