“Strategy gamers and war buffs are going to love this game,” says Steve Milburn, Director of Marketing for Strategy First. “Hearts of Iron really brings a new perspective to the war game market.”

Many PC games have brought different facets of World War II to the small screen, but Hearts of Iron is unique for many reasons. It covers the entire period of the War from 1936 to 1948, rather than fragmented periods, and offers a historically accurate rendering of that monumental decade. Players can bring the battle to any front they choose and must use a combination of diplomacy, strategy and combat to overcome their enemies and lead their country to victory. On top of all this, there are hundreds of hours of gameplay to be found and players can optimize their fun with multiplayer support over LAN or Internet.
