While lacking a few popular titles, this Paradox Interactive bundle still includes some of the developer's best games.

The latest gaming bundle from Humble Bundle features two of the most-played games on Steam as of writing. The Humble Paradox Interactive Bundle features 8 games made or published by the Swedish game development and publishing team at Paradox.

The first tier includes none of Paradox Development Studio's own titles, but has the best percentage saving out of all three tiers. The bundle includes Cities in Motion 2, developed by the same studio that made Cities: Skylines, Magicka 2 and the Majesty 2 collection. The value of the bundle comes to US$54.97/AUD$68.06, saving US$53.97 or 98.18% off the regular store price on Steam.

The second tier contains some of Paradox's best-known titles, including Crusader Kings II, the 86th-most-played (concurrent) Steam game at the time of writing. On top of this, the tier also includes The Old Gods DLC for Crusader Kings II, Obsidian Entertainment's popular RPG Pillars of Eternity, Hearts of Iron III Collection and the Europa Universalis III Complete edition. These titles are worth a combined US$224.92/AUD$278.60, saving US$217.71 or 96.79% off the regular Steam store price.

Note: At the time of writing, the average price for the second tier was US$7.19.

The third tier offers only one extra title, which is Paradox Development Studio's second-most-recent release Stellaris. Following the tradition of PDX titles, Stellaris is a grand strategy title, but this time, instead of being set on earth like Crusader Kings, Europa Universalis and Hearts of Iron, it's set in outer space. The tier's value is US$264.91/AUD$327.68, saving US$252.91 or 95.47% off the regular price from the Steam store.

Crusader Kings II, which was initially released in early 2012, only recently had a new DLC pack come out, 5 years after release.

Personally, Paradox Interactive's titles are some of my favourite games, and three of their titles, Europa Universalis IV (PDX), Hearts of Iron IV (PDX) and Cities: Skylines (Colossal Order), are in the top ten of my most played games.

Below, you can find a complete list of games included in each tier, their developer, publisher and usual Steam price as well as savings data.
