Paradox Interactive celebrates the reached number of 500.000 forum member.
It´s a half-million of forum fans and looks like some got a little present now, but I would say it is not such a little but rather a big present. Do you know any game company who did send out popular free games? I can´t remember any but Paradox Interactive is gifting some of their members a free serial code of the complete package Europa Universalis III: Chronicles, which can be activated and downloaded on steam.
Apart from the fact that Paradox Interactive creates the greatest games, they now get cult status in my eyes. Europa Universalis III has been one of the greatest game hits ever and is a deep armchair strategy game. And now they gift it to the community. It´s epic and so nice of them. In my case it is sad because I own EU 3 already on Gamersgate. I still could activate the serial I got with the email on steam but I rather will gift this key to a friend so that we can play together and that is ok because Paradox Interactive mentioned in their Email: “If you already have EUIII Chronicles, you can share your love of Paradox with a friend by letting them have the code!”. Well, that seems like a good idea
Here is the full Email I got…
