Hearts of Iron III

Stout-hearted beta testers sought.

NEW YORK – February 24th 2009 - Paradox Interactive needs you! The recruitment drive is now underway for Beta Testers to play Hearts of Iron III, the long awaited third installment of the World War II Strategy series set for release towards the end of 2009.

Hearts of Iron III is now approaching the critical Beta stage of development. These last few months has seen the team stabilizing the foundations of the AI, tightening up the rules and mechanics of the game, along with implementing brand new artwork and interface features.

Johan Andersson, Lead Developer on Hearts of Iron III, specifies what they are looking for in Beta Testers: “We require keen, enthusiastic gamers who are willing to give up a few hours a week to play a Beta version of the game and to feedback to us what they think. We want people to play it and tell us what they see. We want them to try and break the game in order for us to fix it and to test out our new advanced AI system to make the computer opponent better.”

Applications to become a Beta tester on Hearts of Iron III must be received by Thursday 5th March. Paradox Interactive is also looking for a small number of historical researchers to assist the development team in improving the databases.

The development of Hearts of Iron III has a dual focus of catering both to the veteran Hearts of Iron player as well as newcomers to the series.

Hearts of Iron III is scheduled for release during the latter half of 2009.
