Virtual Programming has announced the Mac release of Hearts of Iron 3, the latest installment in Paradox Interactive's World War II war strategy series. The game allows players to choose from over 100 countries during the years 1936 to 1948, features nearly 15,000 provinces, and is five times larger than the previous installment.

“Hearts of Iron III offers the ultimate World War II simulation on the Mac,” said Mark Hinton, CEO of Virtual Programming. “The amount of depth and detail is so staggering that players will feel like they’re watching a documentary unfold.”

“We’re thrilled to see the latest entry in the Hearts of Iron strategy series arrive for Mac OS X,” said Johan Andersson, Executive Vice-President, Development, for Paradox Interactive. “The third edition is the most immersive and engaging strategy game we’ve ever developed.”

Since shortly after World War II ended, history buffs have debated “What if?” scenarios. The Hearts of Iron series has long given players the opportunity to play with such situations to their hearts’ content, and Paradox Interactive’s Hearts of Iron III offers the deepest experience yet. The Mac OS X version of the game is available now from Virtual Programming.

Players guide one of more than 100 countries between the years 1936 and 1948, making strategic decisions that could change the course of history. Hearts of Iron III features a huge map containing over 15,000 land and sea provinces, giving military commanders plenty of room to maneuver dozens of 3D air, land, and water units. Brute force isn’t the only option, however: players can engage in diplomacy with other nations as well as manage a realistic logistic system that ensures transportation of vital supplies.

Like other Paradox strategy games, Hearts of Iron III also stars military commanders and politicians based on their real world counterparts and driven by finely-tuned artificial intelligence that enables realistic interaction with them. The flexible technology tree allows players to choose from hundreds of categories for improving their forces’ capabilities, while a dynamic weather system impacts battlefields in realistic ways.

System Requirements:
  • OS X 10.5.8 or higher
  • Any Intel CPU
  • GeForce 7300, Radeon HD 2400 (GMA cards not supported)
  • 128 MB VRAM, 1GB RAM
