Paradox Interactive now make Board Games, apparently19 May 2018 0
Paradox Interactive, known for videogames from their stable grand-strategy heavyweights, indie darlings like Magicka and even big-budget titles like Pillars of Eternity and BattleTech.
As of this morning, you might also start knowing them for their range of strategy boardgames.
Announced at this year's Paradox Convention, the Swedish publisher revealed that they've partnered with four separate studios to develop physical table-top games for four seperate IP's.
Eagle-Gryphon Games & war games veteran Glenn Drover are working on a Hearts of Iron table top wargame, while Eager Games is working on brining Europa Universalis back to the table (the very first EU was based on a French board game of the same name). There is also a Cities: Skylines game in the works.
Finally, table-top RPG publisher Free League are working on a Crusader Kings 2 game, which we've tried and is really fun. That game has just launched on Kickstarter, if you want to check out more details about it.
There's no news on a release window for three of the titles, but Free League are aiming to be able to ship to backers around Essen later this year.
