The Paradox Launcher is our client platform for playing and enjoying our games. We are continuously developing it and adding more features and this FAQ is a short list of questions we've seen come in.
- Can I play game X with the launcher?
At the moment only Imperator:Rome, Stellaris, Tyranny, Surviving Mars, BattleTech and Age of Wonders:Planetfall are playable using our launcher. More games will be added in the future. If and when older games will be added is unknown at present.
I Installed game the but it still says I need to install it!
Try emptying C:/Users/<username>AppData/Local/Paradox Interactive, then restart the launcher.
My DLC aren't showing up.

- I can't find my achievements.
Go to Main Menu -> Paradox Account -> Paradox Achievements.
NOTE: this app is really a client (similar to the Steam and Galaxy clients), it is technically not a launcher despite the name.
It is different from the Paradox Launcher v2 which is run from Steam, Galaxy, or this client with the games HOI4, EU4, Stellaris, Imperator:Rome, Cities:Skylines, Prison Architect, and Age of Wonders:Planetfall.
