In time for the PDXCon 2019 weekend, fans have a chance to play Crusader Kings 2 for free on Steam.

Right now, there’s no official announcement from Paradox Entertainment regarding the timeline of the free-to-play promo. Will this be part of the PDXCon event, or is it going to be a permanent offer?

It’s also interesting to note that on the Paradox website, Crusader Kings 2 is no longer available for purchase.

Whether or not it’s temporary, fans should take advantage, especially if they don’t have this title yet. It’s one of the most successful games in the Paradox lineup.

Crusader Kings 2 is a grand strategy game set in the Middle Ages, which was also the time of the Crusades.

As a player, you will be in charge of a dynasty that exists between 1066 and 1337. It’s a grand scale since you need to think about the whole picture ignoring the small details. Would war be the best option or alliances through marriages? Would diplomacy work as well as threats? Throughout the game, you will also encounter real historical figures such as Genghis Khan, Richard the Lionheart, and Charlemagne.

Europe is in turmoil, and you have a chance to charter your own course and fulfill your destiny. Do you have what it takes to become a Crusader King?

Meanwhile, on this year’s PDXCon on Oct 18-20, the world will first experience Vampire: The Masquerade — Bloodlines 2. Several games are also in the lineup to debut during the anticipated event in Berlin, Germany.

Vampire: The Masquerade won’t release until March 2020, so fans getting their hands on the game is a treat.

Also, Paradox earlier said that a new game would debut on the PDXCon 2019. This was confirmed by Dan Lind, Hearts of Iron IV game director, in an earlier interview. As with most of Paradox’s products, the new title will still be a grand strategy game. While they leave the game to the imagination of fans, Paradox, however, is clear on one thing.

The game would not be Victoria III. At least, fans can scratch the game out of their list. The news is very disappointing for fans. Victoria II was released way back in 2010, so it’s high time for a follow-up.

The PDXCon is expected to draw in more than 300 members of the Paradoxian community. Some 50 speakers are also lined up to speak, and fans can interact with the game designers.
