Paradox has been having a might busy weekend, announcing Crusader Kings 3 alongside no fewer than five new expansion packs for pretty much all of its biggest games.
There’s new content inbound over the next couple of months for the likes of Battletech, Age of Wonders: Planetfall, Stellaris, Hearts of Iron 4, and Prison Architect. It’s kind of formidable even daring to think about keeping up with Paradox’s output these days but there should be a little something for everyone here.
