Paradox Announces Line-up for GDC‘09

Stockholm, Sweden - March 12th 2009– Paradox Interactive today confirmed their presence at this year’s Game Developers Conference in San Francisco, along with the line-up of development teams who will be on hand to showcase their highly anticipated titles scheduled to release this year.

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

Hearts of Iron III

The eagerly anticipated third instalment 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.

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 humour 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.
