Update: (Fri 29th May, 2020 12:00 BST): This free Green Cities DLC promotion never actually went officially live on Xbox One due to the aforementioned issues. Paradox has now commented on this:
"First of all, thank you so much for your patience and understanding so far. The issue deemed to be a bit more complicated than we'd anticipated, but we've been working with Microsoft to sort it out for you."
The company says that the offer will return for all Xbox One players, but it doesn't yet have any details to share about how or when this will be. As soon as we hear more, we'll let you know.
Update (Sat 23rd May, 2020 15:00 BST): This DLC was supposed to go live on Thursday, May 21st at 0:01am UTC, but it's still showing as chargeable for the time being. Paradox Interactive says it's "collecting information about the issue," but from the reports we've seen so far, everyone seems to be having the same problem.
We'll drop you an update when we know more.
