    Steam options Pre-order and Season Pass

    Hello,
    so as for CK2 there is a lot of DLC being released which is really good, but i was thinking that we obviously will have some DLCs for EU4 and maybe Paradox wouldn't be mind to sell a Season Pass for all future DLCs? For example i would definitely buy all the future DLCs so Season Pass would be an insta buy for me. I bet it would be popular among Paradox fans.
    And as an option - is there pre-order option will be available on steam? Idk what bonuses you can include, but as example it could be like -10% discount or something different.

    dl:dr take my money

    It might be too early to ask, but I`d rather like to know if there will be a non-steam version of the game.

    Probably, yes. They have hinted that Steam represents about 90-95% of their sales, but I don't think they will stop selling non-steam versions from Gamersgate. I'm always going to buy non-steam if I can, but since you can run the games without Steam anyway it wouldn't bother me much if Steam was the only alternative.
    Bra där.

    Yes there will be a non-steam version like always.. I will almost guarantee that.. if it was only steam half the people I know would not buy it
    That being said, I use steam for all other games than pdox games, so to me it would make little difference.

    Try "maybe 5% of the people wouldn't buy it". As furga mentioned above, what numbers we have seems to point at upward of 90% of PAradox sales being on Steam already.

    With many DLC packs over the long-run, as is currently the case with CK2, they might not want to do it as it risks becoming a net loss.

    We will not do any seasonpass, as the amount of DLC produced simply can not be projected at any time.

    Would you be happy if we sell a season pass for 100$ at release, and then only release 2 dlc ?


    And no, there won't be a non-steam version.. We had a huge forum-demand for a non-steam version of CK2, and it had an even less percent of the market than we had expected.

    I fully expect some feathers to be ruffled by that comment, but if the nonsteam version simply wasn't viable from a business standpoint there is no point letting people get there hopes up... It's not like steam is a 'bad' business platform like the origin store or stardock.

    Also the point of a season pass is generally when you know there is going to be X amount of items and they've all been announced prior to sale, like a tv 'season' or a game which uses a episodic format. For DLC something which is created after the event - or atleast should be - and not created during or planned that far ahead it doesn't make any sense. As Johan said.

    Afterall you don't expect the developer to be thinking 'Well we'll take out feature X and put it in DLC' the thought process is more often 'If we're lucky maybe we can expand on feature X and make it feature Y'...three months later 'We'll stick with X maybe release Y as a DLC'

    Higher chance for steam workshop support which means it will be more easy to search for, download and install mods (using steam workshop).
    And of course, my loved achievements.

    Is there some cost involved for putting stuff out on Gamersgate or other sales channels? I'm completely ignorant on the matter.

    Different patches have to be made for different vendors. If you make a game Steam only, then only one patch needs to be made.
