STOCKHOLM and LOS ANGELES - June 9, 2019 - Paradox Interactive, a publisher and developer of games for worldwide audiences, today announced that their newest Grand Strategy Game, Imperator: Rome, is available with Xbox Game Pass for PC alongside other Paradox games.

Imperator: Rome, which is among the very first games to appear on the service, is the latest Grand Strategy Game from Paradox Development Studio.

“Paradox is best known for its deep, endless games -- and the extended support and additions we provide to those games,” said Ebba Ljungerud, CEO of Paradox Interactive. “Our games provide our players with thousands of hours of entertainment, and they grow and evolve alongside our community with both free and premium content added over the lifetime of a title. Xbox Game Pass PC Games presents us with a promising new means to provide these long-lived titles to players, and with a new community we are excited to welcome to our own.
