MacPlay today announced that it will be distributing Hearts of Iron, the next release in is exclusive distribution agreement with British publisher Virtual Programming. The real-time strategy game is expected to ship on September 15th, 2003.

Here's more from the official PR:

Spanning the years 1936-1946, Hearts of Iron offers epic gameplay on a global map which features every nation in the world at that time. Players select a country and build its technology and military, even developing super-weapons in the process, as they plan a strategy to win World War II. They can take the war to any front they wish and in the process drastically alter the course of history.

"Real-time strategy games don't get much bigger than this," said Henry Price, MacPlay's Director of Sales and Marketing. "The great thing about Hearts of Iron is that you can take a little country and potentially conquer the world with it. When I played, everyone in the game was speaking Swedish by the end."

"In my case, it was Mandarin," added Virtual Programming's Director, Paul Lesurf. "What really attracted us to this game was the scope of the action-World War II is the perfect vehicle for epic strategy-and the precise attention to detail."

Hearts of Iron was developed by Paradox Entertainment, best known for the critically acclaimed strategy game: Europa Universalis II. The team at Paradox researched World War II in depth to ensure that all aspects of the game were true to their historical counterparts. The unique system simulates the politics of the time period and their effect on neutral nations.

Players can take on computer-controlled opponents or head to the Internet to battle human players through the proprietary Valkyrienet match-making service.
