Paradox Prepares to Invade Cologne

NEW YORK - August 6, 2009 - On the heels of the successful release of East India Company and Hearts of Iron III, Paradox Interactive today announced their line-up for the upcoming gamescom 2009 show in Cologne, Germany from August 19-21.

Paradox will be showcasing a wide array of projects, starting with the soon-to-be released Majesty 2. Scheduled for release on September 11, the long overdue sequel for the beloved real-time strategy classic is finally approaching release. 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.

In addition to Majesty 2, Paradox will be showcasing the following projects:

Mount&Blade: Warband: The first expansion for the critically acclaimed Mount&Blade will introduce 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: Warband is scheduled for release in Q1 2010.

Project Poseidon: This - soon to be announced - latest addition to the Paradox portfolio is the sequel in a very popular simulation game where players take on the responsibilities of running a wide array of vessels at sea.

East India Company: Exciting new details on upcoming expansions as well as live demos of the Matrox Triplehead feature.

Paradox’s internal development team will be present to demo Hearts of Iron 3 and reveal the next major project to be developed by the team.

Paradox is currently accepting appointments to meet with the team and demo the upcoming projects. Demos will only be possible through scheduled appointments but feel free to stop by our booth in Business Hall 5.2 - F02/H020 for a press kit.
