The message provided via Paradox Interactive's official website, reveals that the the company plans "regional price adjustments" for the games it publishes.

The increases will begin with the debut of The Lamplighters League (October 3) and Cities: Skylines II (October 24). At the same time, the corporation assures that pre-order prices for both titles will remain at their current levels.

"As a general rule, we strive to maintain a reasonably fair balance between regional prices, based on comparable data, as well as purchasing power parity in different markets and industries. As a result, the upcoming regional adjustment is mainly motivated by the fact that several markets are not in line with our data, which increases the risk of abuse of regional prices for certain currencies," the company's explanation reads.

The publisher of such blockbusters as Cities: Skylines, Europa Universalis IV or Pillars of Eternity, stresses that price increases for games will take place on Steam and Epic Games Store.

Although the price adjustment affects many currencies, those who pay for games with US dollars, euros and British pounds can also rest assured. The most affected are residents of Argentina, as the increase there will reach 170 percent.

An introvert by nature. Since childhood, he felt a closer connection to humanism than to the sciences. Instead of exercises in maths, he preferred shutting himself up in his world and inventing new stories of his favorite anime – Dragon Ball. After years of study came a time of stagnation, which he preferred to call "searching for purpose." Looking out for destiny during the 58th screening of his beloved Die Hard, he decided – like John McCLane – to fight for a better future. He found the avenue to do this in Gamepressure. Since he's still a freshman in the newsroom, he doesn't have a target subject he wants to focus on yet. So, you can expect news about farming simulators, or the impact of Johnny Depp's trial on the future of Pirates of the Caribbean. If you ever hear that playing console games and watching movies is futile – remember this story
