Paradox Interactive has announced that it has reached over 500,000 subscribers worldwide to its official forums. To celebrate this milestone, five lucky forum subscribers will be awarded every game that Paradox publishes and will ever publish in the future, with every subscriber receiving a special thanks.

“Since the early years when our fans would get together and compare battle plans for our grand strategy games, our community has been defined by their passion,” said Fredrik Wester, CEO of Paradox Interactive. “We got our start in strategy and those games continue to drive forum conversations, whether they’re tearing us apart because of a few historical liberties taken in Crusader Kings, or telling us they can’t wait for some of our newer action titles like Dungeonland or The Showdown Effect. Our sincere thanks to all 500,000 of you loyal lunatics.”

Paradox is also launching an all-new web-based game store. As part of the launch of the new online storefront is a 55 percent discount on several selections from Paradox’s catalog.
