Paradox Interactive -- the software publisher behind the most awesome PC strategy game East India Company that is sucking away all of my free time -- has announced that Hearts of Iron III will be receiving a brand new expansion, entitled Hearts of Iron III: For the Motherland during the Paradox Interactive Convention 2011.
If you are not aware, Hearts of Iron is a World War II grand strategy game, and this is the second expansion in the series. According to Paradox it will be available in Q2 2011 -- which translates to some time between April and June, which amazingly enough is the same time frame that the cable TV guy said they might show up to install my cable!
Hearts of Iron III takes players on an epic journey through World War II, where they occupy any of 15,000 provinces (seriously), wage war, and guide one of 100 nations to glory. With a realistic military command AI and a colorful cast of historically accurate military commanders and politicians, Hearts of Iron III is the most detailed depiction of World War II ever created in a strategy game.

Note: if you got the impression that I was shamelessly plugging their game East India Company above, well, yeah, I was. Not because they asked me to -- they didn't -- just because it is a most awesome and entertaining title!
