hoi3I was a huge fan of the first two Hearts of Iron games from Paradox – two awesome and completely hardcore strategy games that had everything a strategy games fan would’ve wished for. Most certainly, Hearts of Iron 3 will feature the same high quality gameplay and improvements. The best news? We’ll get the chance to see it all for ourselves pretty soon since Hearts of Iron 3 has gone gold!

Paradox announced that the World War II strategy game will hit North American shores on August 7, while Europe will see it released between August 14 and August 28. Big delays but… life is not fair every time!

For those who are not up to date with HoI3’s features, here’s a short summary: the game will be featuring rich battle simulations that occurred between 1936 and 1948, huge game world (with more than 14,000 land and sea provinces which probably is the biggest in computer games until now) and much, much more.

So if you are a hardcore strategy game fan, mark the 7th of August in your calendar: that’s going to be a big day!
