Paradox Interactive Signs Multiplayer and Matchmaking Support Deal

Paradox Interactive is bringing multiplayer and matchmaking support to its games via GameRanger, the free multiplayer online gaming service for more than 600 games on PC and Mac.

The announcement advances Paradox’s strategy of meeting the needs and desires of its dedicated fan community, further demonstrated by the recent release of For the Glory: A Europa Universalis Game and the upcoming release of Arsenal of Democracy: A Hearts of Iron Game, two strategy titles developed by teams forged within Paradox’s fan community. GameRanger technology allows players of these titles and other games to easily connect and interact with each other in a friendly environment without the network problems usually associated with multiplayer games.

“GameRanger offers a highly competitive set of features for multiplayer gaming, and we’re very happy to offer support for many of Paradox’s games through the service,” said Mattias Lilija, Associate Producer at Paradox Interactive. “It’s now even easier for players to experience the excitement and suspense of multiplayer gaming in strategy titles like Crystal Empire Games’ For the Glory and BL-Logic’s Arsenal of Democracy, both of which were – like GameRanger – created by passionate, independent teams focused on delivering what gamers want.”

“As a committed PC publisher, Paradox has a keen understanding of its loyal community, and I'm pleased to be working with them to provide painless matchmaking for their strategy gamers," said Scott Kevill, president of GameRanger Technologies.

GameRanger can be downloaded for free. For the Glory: A Europa Universalis Game is now available for $19.95 at major digital distributors as will the upcoming Arsenal of Democracy: A Hearts of Iron Game.
