In one of the more unique preorder incentives we’ve come across, those who order Europa Universalis 4 will not only receive a free copy of Crusader Kings 2, but they’ll also have the ability to transfer their save file across and into the new game from Paradox Interactive. Introducing the Europa Universalis 4 save file transfer.

The Save Game Converter for Crusader Kings 2 allows Europa Universalis 4 to read it and convert it into playable code. Players will be able to maintain the empires they established and guide them through the age of exploration in an all-new strategic experience, continuing personal stories of expansion and conquest.

Both the saved converter and copy of Crusader Kings II will be available as pre-order bonuses on August 1, and players that have already pre-purchased Europa Universalis IV will receive these additional bonuses.

Interested? Head here.

For more details on the save-file transfer incentive, tune into Paradox’s Twitch TV feed tonight (11 a.m. PDT (6 p.m. GMT, 7 p.m. BST, 8 p.m CEST). The stream will be live here – http://twitch.tv/paradoxinteractive.

Europa Universalis 4 will release on August 13th for Windows, Mac, and Linux.
