New Expansion for Hearts of Iron III Announced!

E3 2012: New Expansion for Hearts of Iron III Announced!

A much needed expansion for HOI3, out Autumn 2012

Quote:
Paradox Helps You Relive “Their Finest Hour” Later This Year. Victory at all costs. Yes, it is true. It’s time to dust off the field marshal's baton and take command of any nation in World War II; the largest conflict in history.
Because one of Paradox Interactives and Paradox Development Studios' most expansive games will get even bigger this fall. Hearts of Iron III, the deepest and most expansive simulation of World War 2-era politics, science and warfare, will see a new expansion that offers players a greater connection to the period's history and new ways to jump straight into the action.

“Their Finest Hour” is the third expansion for Hearts of Iron III, and comes three years after the original game's release – further evidence of Paradox's commitment to building and growing their games well after the launch period, adding features and ideas requested by their active and involved international online community.

You can expect the expansion Hearts of Iron III: Their Finest Hour to land with a bang later in 2012.

Announced features for Hearts of iron III: Their Finest Hour include:

- Expanded espionage system with new and reworked missions, including new covert operations that can be performed on the map.

- New 'battle plans' mode where you can load historical plans, or draw your own and share with your allies in real-time in multiplayer games.

- New unique elite units for each major nation's army - Gurkhas, Rangers, Imperial Guards etc.

- Deeper naval invasions system including the development of specialized landing and assault crafts to improve the effectiveness of your assault.

- More detailed control over strategic warfare and a generalized lend-lease system to support your distant allies with your industrial might.

- Leaders are now able to gain traits, and assigning them to duty is more important than ever with the new combat tactics system for battles.

- A new custom game mode for both single and multiplayer. You start with a clean slate and can instantly produce units, research technologies and affect political alignment before the game begins. This allows you to model interesting 'what-if' scenarios and speeds up the early years for those who would like to jump straight into the action with no slow build-up.

- Two new detailed battle scenarios, the Russo-Finnish Winter War and the Spanish Civil War

Its out! The latest add-on for HOI3 - Their Finest Hour. Personally I think its a fantastic use of £14.99, adding further sprites, scenarios and events as well as a new battleplans feature. A must for all HOI fans!!!

I think its quite good (although many others on the Paradox Forum disagree) and can add an extra level of realism to the game. Its basically a drawing which can be placed over the campaign map. You can create your own, choose from several historical operations (Overlord,Torch etc..) or edit the historical operations to suit your own uses. The whole thing is purely for the players own enjoyment though, and the units do not follow the battleplans. It can be useful in multiplayer as there is a function to share your plans with allies, thus making combined operations easier with multiple players.
