Finally participants will get access to private Discord channels and exclusive titles on Paradox Interactive service, and have an exclusive role in the next Grand Campaign played ahead of PDXCON.

What games will be present at PDXCON?

With a smaller event, we’ve decided to focus on the core of what Paradox is known for: Paradox Development Studios Grand Strategy Games. So you can expect to see Europa Universalis, Crusader Kings, Hearts of Iron, Stellaris, and of course Victoria; as well as the teams working with these games. 

While you might also meet with people working on our other games, this won’t be the focus this year at PDXCON 2022. For our other popular games and brands, we have other plans in mind for the future, so stay tuned!

What precautions are you taking in regards to the Covid-19 pandemic?

We’ll be applying Swedish recommendations and regulations. As of now they don’t impose any special requirements for physical events. We still strongly encourage our participants to come vaccinated and taking any precautions they deem necessary, and understand that some might not feel comfortable attending a physical event at this time.

We’ll ensure to have face masks as well as disinfecting stations available at the venue, and should the state of the pandemic evolve by September, we’ll adjust accordingly.

Can we expect any announcement of new games?

Not at PDXCON this year; we won’t be having any announcement show. There is (very) cool work being done on future games by PDS and our other studios, and you’ll be hearing about in the future, but not at PDXCON 2022. The event will focus mainly on Grand Strategy Games, for some of our titles in other genre, we have different plans in mind. 

What activities will be available online?

We’ll be giving people a glimpse of what is happening at PDXCON 2022 on live streams on our Instagram channels, filmed directly from the venue during the event. However, most activities will be physical only and won’t be streamed or recorded. There won’t be an online announcement show comparable to what we had in the past couple of years.

The PDXCON experience will be for people who could make it to Stockholm this year, and if you missed it, well there is always the next one. ;)

Where to stay in Stockholm?

PDXCON will take place on the central and vibrant island of Södermalm, the southern neighborhood of Stockholm inner-city, where our Paradox offices are also located. The area has many hotels and other forms of accommodation (hostels, Airbnb, etc).

For guests looking for an accommodation further outside of the city, the venue is easily accessible via the red and green line from the Stockholm subway (Tunnelbana) or via commuter trains (Pendeltag) at Stockholm Södra station. 

Why aren’t there any cheaper tickets like previous years?

We’ve decided this year to change a bit our approach to PDXCON, being less focused on marketing activities and showing our games with booths or presentations. We've decided to rather focus on what is for us the most important part of PDXCON: our players and teams at the Paradox meeting and having an awesome time together. 

We’ve got some amazing activities for PDXCON participants, and we made the choice to not have different experiences for different participants like previous years with barons, kings and emperors tickets. We want to focus on what was the best kind of experience possible, which very much modeled after the kind of experience Emperors tickets holders have been used to.

Can I refund my ticket if I can’t make it to the event?
