Hey everyone! We're looking into it at the moment. Please keep in mind that solving such incidents related to console storefronts is never entirely up to us, so it might take more time than fixing something only on Paradox's side. Don't panic tho, we'll try to make the wait as short as possible.

Yes its free now, thanks. Hope we can keep using it. Heard reports from PS4 users they couldnt use their saves with it anymore as the dlc did not get picked up by the system after the free period

Just to make sure, do you own the game and are you checking the Xbox One Edition or Windows 10 Edition in the store? The reason I ask is because only the Xbox One Edition of Green Cities is free.
