Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 delayed into 2021

The 15-year wait for a Bloodlines sequel will stretch a little longer, because Paradox today announced they've delayed the launch of Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2 into 2021. While they had never announced a specific release date, the supernatural RPG was expected this year. Now Paradox and developers Hardsuit Labs say they want more time to make sure it lives up to the Bloodlines…

Watch the Crusader Kings 3 developers kill their brother with a duck

The first stream of Crusader Kings 3 started with a classic moment last week. It managed to surprise the developers by revealing their sister as their lover which, hearteningly, shocks them. Any game that can make the creator do a double-take is good by me. The whole 47 minutes is a surprisingly breezy look at the regicide and intrigue at the heart of their upcoming…

Your king could lose his mind if you’re too nice in Crusader Kings 3

As we draw closer to the release date of Crusader Kings 3 on September 1, Paradox has started a series of videos to get you up to speed with their grand strategy game. First up is a look at how characteristics shape your regal avatar. It begins with the story of Erik the Heathen, a greedy, brave, and zealous Viking. Despite ruling Sweden, he is…

Get Europa Universalis IV for $1 in Humble’s new Paradox Bundle

Clearly not content with having three game bundles on the go, those mad lunatics at Humble have just gone and announced a fourth bundle today, this time celebrating the best of Paradox Interactive. It's a pretty special one, too, as you've got the epic Europa Universalis IV and Age Of Wonders III in the entry-level 78p / $1 tier, as well as Stellaris, BattleTech and…

Paradox have bought the studio behind Surviving The Aftermath

Continuing to buy studios like they're releasing DLC, Paradox Interactive today announced they've acquired Iceflake Studios, the Finnish studio who are making post-apocalyptic city-builder Surviving The Aftermath. They're becoming Paradox's ninth studio. Paradox talk vaguely about Iceflake helping make more games in their "core genres" so I guess they'll be continuing with strat-o-build-a-sim-y-RPG things.

Paradox have bought a mobile games studio, Playrion

Continuing their remarkable expansion, Crusader Kings and Stellaris company Paradox Interactive today announced they've bought Playrion Game Studio, a French crew focused on mobile games. Maybe you know them from Airlines Manager? Paradox say that owning Playrion will help them bring more of their game worlds to mobile. No hints as to what might be next, mind.

Damsel returns to cause distress in Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2

Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines 2 was bound to have a few familiar faces, wasn't it? I mean, they're vampires so they tend to hang around a while. Paradox Interactive have released a new video announcing that yer girl Damsel—who seems much less likely to be in distress than the one causing it—will be making a return in Bloodlines 2.

By the end of this month, Paradox employees should have a formal way of influencing their pay, benefits and responsibilities, and be generally better protected by the unions they're part of. If you're a little confused on…

Led by a Paradox veteran with two decades of gran estrategia under his belt, the studio based in Barcelona will initially help out with ongoing work on Europa Universalis IV then later start making new grand strategies of their own. No hints yet at…

Prison Architect’s Island Bound expansion sets sail next month

What better barrier than the sea? Arriving next month, Prison Architect's next expansion is Island Bound, letting you trade out those impractical land-loving fortresses for the sheer simplicity of a big scary rock in the sea. Forget barbed wires and concrete walls, the roaring abyss will prevent even the most rebellious inmate from attempting escape - at least, not until they discover boats.

Crusader Kings 3 will launch on September 1st

Paradox Interactive today announced a release date for Crusader Kings III: September 1st. It's been eight years since CK2 launched and Paradox have stretched the medieval dynasty-building strat-o-RPG to breaking point with expansions and updates, so here comes a clean slate with some solid changes. Our Nate recently got to play a preview version and came away dead impressed.

Hands-on preview: Crusader Kings 3 is the RPG that will suck you into grand strategy

Crusader Kings 3 is coming on September 1st, and after having access to an early build for a few days, I’m seriously impatient to get back to scheming, disinheriting, and declaring myself the new pope. It’s got that terrible magic that leads to all-day-and-half-the-night sessions, and that’s largely because, secretly, it’s two games at once. It’s a strategy game, obviously. But it’s also a roleplaying…

Stellaris celebrates four years with a new update, a trial week, and a sale

Four years ago, Paradox launched Stellaris, a sci-fi grand strategy game which had promise but needed a bit of work to find itself. Since then, Paradox have released so many updates overhauling and replacing bits and pieces that I'm entirely lost on how it works when I come back to it. They've certainly put in work. To celebrate the fourth birthday (which was actually on…

John Romero’s actual gangster gran will mind control toughs in Empire Of Sin

Romero Games celebrated Mother's Day yesterday with an ode to one seriously badass mother in their upcoming tactical gangster game Empire Of Sin. John Romero's actual great grandmother Elvira Duarte was apparently a brothel owner who they're making an homage to as one of the game's crime bosses. Despite being of advanced age, she's got a pretty gnarly special ability, they say in a new developer…

Have You Played… The Showdown Effect?

The Showdown Effect is what action movies would look like if they were multiplayer platform fighters. It's a straight up deathmatch, where you're trying to dive, stab or shoot your way to the top of the leaderboard. It has some clever ideas that create very funny moments. Above all, though, it is slick. John Wick slick.

Cities: Skylines is gone fishing with the Sunset Harbor expansion

If you ever stared at the beautiful seas, lakes, and rivers around your cities in Cities: Skylines and thought "Surely I can monetise these as more than just dumping grounds for raw sewage?" you might want to check out the latest expansion. Launched today, Sunset Harbor adds new fishing industries to wring that wet silver from your waters. It has a grab bag of other…

Feature: Nic & Nate make classic space mistakes

The RPS Verdict – Stellaris: Federations

Nate: The galaxy has been remade once again. Space opera strategy extravaganza Stellaris has a new DLC out, called Federations, and a massive free patch that overhauls a greater-than-usual number of the game's systems. Both the DLC and the patch focus hard on diplomacy, and so I thought it'd be a good idea to rope in a fellow space obsessive and see if, working together,…
