About Judy

As WP's managing editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games.

Paradox Entertainment announced today that Hearts of Iron – Platinum has shipped to retail stores nationwide. Hearts of Iron – Platinum has been rated E for Everyone and has a SRP of $19.99.

"We at Paradox are very excited with our September strategy lineup," said Fredrik Lindgren, Director of Sales and Marketing for Paradox Entertainment. "Hearts of Iron – Platinum is an outstanding addition to the Hearts of Iron franchise and it is a thrill for us to be bringing this title and Crusader Kings to our fans in the same month."

Hearts of Iron, the first World War II game of true grand strategic scope, shipped in 2002 and a sequel is in development for Q1 2005. Hearts of Iron – Platinum Edition introduces a new scenario, thousands of new events, an improved AI and a completely revised manual to the original game.

Hearts of Iron received international acclaim from the North American and European gaming communities, including Editor's Choice Awards from PC Gamer, IGN and Strategy Gaming Online. The game was surrounded by controversy recently when it was banned by China's Ministry of Culture for allegedly "distorting history and damaging China's sovereignty and territorial integrity."
