NEW YORK, - August, 6, 2010– Continuing to improve upon Hearts of Iron 3: Semper Fi, Paradox Interactive has released a new update that brings numerous refinements to the company's recently released World War II strategy game expansion.
The patch further enhances the vast AI improvements found in the expansion, brings balance changes to units and weapons, and also improves overall stability. Combined, the changes make it that much easier for players to re-write the history as they lose themselves in their own version of World War II, set their own hidden victory conditions, and manage their allies.
Released in June 2010, Semper Fi marks the first expansion to Hearts of Iron 3, and is available through most major digital distributors, including GamersGate, Impulse and Steam.
