PDXCON 2019 is Being Held in Berlin for the First Time Next October
Paradox Interactive has announced that PDXCON 2019 will take place October 19-20 in Berlin, Germany.
For the last couple years, Paradox Interactive, a publisher mostly known for grand strategy games like Europa Universalis IV, Hearts of Iron IV, and Stellaris, has held an fan event in Stockholm, Sweden called PDXCON where they show off their latest expansions and reveal some upcoming titles. This year’s event saw the reveal of two brand new games – Imperator: Rome and Age of Wonders: Planetfall.
Around this time each year, Paradox teases the next event, and 2018 has proven to be no different. Through a series of funny videos on their YouTube channel PDXCON 2019 has officially been unveiled. Interestingly, the event is eleven months out and has been relocated to Berlin, Germany.
PDXCON 2019 is currently poised to take place on October 19 and October 20, 2019 and has apparently been moved to Berlin instead of Stockholm so the event can give a “greater opportunity for fans to attend form a wider variety of locations.” Paradox Interactive is also promising “debut announcements” in addition to other updates on in-development games, so it definitely seems like an event the publisher’s fans will be interested in.
Tickets have not gone on sale yet as the event is still about eleven months away, but will go up in Early 2019 on the convention’s website. Ebba Ljungerud, CEO of Paradox Interactive, briefly discussed next year’s event, highlighting what it means to both Paradox and its fans:
“PDXCON has come to mean a lot to our fans, and to all of us inside Paradox as well. It’s not just a milestone for us as a company, it’s a personal highlight. As our first public PDXCON to take place outside of the comfort of our ‘home field,’ we intend to make this year’s show worthy of the global stage — bigger and bolder than ever before. I’ll see you all there!”
Of course, you can expect that DualShockers will let you know about any new announcements that wind up being made at PDXCON 2019. In the meantime, you can entertain yourself with the aforementioned PDXCON announcement video below.
