Paradox Interactive confirmed their presence at this year's Game Developers Conference, along with the lineup of development teams who will be on hand to showcase their titles scheduled to release this year, such as Majesty 2, Elven Legacy and others ...

The following titles will be available for demo opportunities during the show:

Hearts of Iron III

The eagerly anticipated third installment in the critically acclaimed World War II strategy series, Hearts of Iron III will feature a plethora of brand new features to satisfy veteran and novice players alike, including a huge game map with more than 14,000 land and sea provinces. At GDC, Hearts of Iron III will be at the beta stage of development where all functionality of the game will be present. The development team will be on hand to demonstrate every aspect of the game.

Hearts of Iron III is scheduled for release in Q3 2009.

Majesty 2

The long overdue sequel for the beloved real-time strategy classic is finally approaching completion. With nothing else out there quite like it, the world of Majesty 2 is full of charm along with a unique sense of humor where the player only has indirect control of the characters and units. The independent thinking Heroes are just as likely to go shopping as they are to fight monsters and undertake heroic quests! Majesty 2 will make you think in totally new ways.

Majesty 2 is scheduled for release in Q2 2009.

Elven Legacy

Elven Legacy is a fantasy strategy game that sends players on an epic quest aimed to restore the former glory of the Elven race, and delivers a world filled with magic. The game has a thrilling non-linear storyline with multiple endings. Elven Legacy also offers tools that allow players to create their own missions and campaigns and share them in multiplayer mode.

Elven Legacy is scheduled for release on April 7th.

The first expansion pack for the critically acclaimed Mount & Blade introduces an array of brand new features, highlighted by a multiplayer mode that allows up to 32 players to battle it out in team death-match style combat on a single map. Additional features of the expansion include improved strategic AI, extended diplomatic options, and state-of-the-art rendering technologies.

The Mount & Blade Expansion is scheduled for release in Q3 2009.
