Paradox Convention 2017

By FallenXE - 5th January 2017 - 15:48 PM

Early in December, Paradox announced PDX Con 2017 which will be held between May 13 - May 14 at Gamla Riksarkivet at Riddarholmen, Stockholm, Sweden. This is the first year in which the PDX Convention has opened up its doors to the public as prior to this it had only been meant for developers and members of the media.

This follows what is undoubtedly a successful and exciting 2016 for Paradox in which they had their IPO and which they released Stellaris and Hearts of Irons IV, both to critical acclaim.

As taken from their press statement for PDX Con 2017;

The ticket admission will include full access to the convention, including all seminars, meet & greets, costuming, gameplay areas, and much more, plus a bag of exclusive PDXCON goodies, and a party with BBQ dinner on Saturday night. You'll get the chance to hear from Paradox luminaries like Fredrik Wester, Johan Andersson, Henrik Fåhraeus, and more, as they share design and direction stories with players at a series of panels and presentations, and party with your fellow Paradox fans in style! For super-fans, there's also an exclusive and limited GOLDEN TICKET available with even more stuff.
