Paradox has “goofed” following the non-delivery of Cities: Skylines Zen Garden codes to gamers who signed up for the newsletter. This has worked out rather well for everyone because all players will now get a Zen Garden. Hoorah!
It was intended to be a one-time exclusive just like pre-order items or stuff we’d give away at conventions. Alas, with the extra struggle that appeared with the missing keys, we decided this shouldn’t be the case.
So we’re giving it to everyone.
We’ll update both the standard and deluxe versions to include this item by default. As we’re working with the Steam backend it might take a little while for it to update, but expect it to pop up in-game (under parks) some time today.
Please note that we’re not planning to make a habit out of giving away promo items to everyone. This is a one time thing.
Well done to PDX for sorting this out and taking what was probably the best option to resolve this quickly.
