Furthermore, Paradox has wrapped several of its games into new themed bundles which include a Paradox Grand Strategy Collection (Hearts of Iron III, Crusader Kings II, Europa Universalis IV and Victoria II) and the Paradox Platinum Pack which includes Crusader Kings II and Europa Universalis IV, along with other Paradox games that are not grand strategies. On top of that you can also pick up the The Crusader Kings II Collection and the Europa Universalis IV Collection, providing all the downloadable content released so far.
I just purchased my discounted copy of Crusader Kings II and I hope to play and review it this weekend, which I am really looking forward to since it has been ages since I played a PC game. I decided not to splurge on the downloadable content since it is my belief that if a game can't stand on its own without the DLC, than it is not worth your time. Lets hope Crusader Kings II lives up to the hype.
