Paradox Con 2014: Hearts of Iron 4, Runemaster Announced

New expansions for Crusader Kings 2 and Europa Universalis 4 should please many a strategy fan, but the big news to come out of today’s Paradox Interactive Convention 2014 was the reveal of two new projects. Paradox announced the games formerly teased as “Armstrong” and “Nero” are Hearts of Iron 4 and an all-new Norse-based RPG called Runemaster.

We weren’t able to make it to this year’s PDXCon, but news travels fast these days. Courtesy of Paradox marketing maestro David Martinez:

We’re expecting more details soon, including trailers. We’ll update this post as soon as we get them.

UPDATE: Here we go. Just received the press release for Hearts of Iron 4 and Runemaster from Paradox:

Hearts of Iron IV challenges players to face the brutal conflict of World War II in a multifaceted grand strategy game, where history can be fully relived or rewritten from the perspective of a global superpower attempting to change the world, or a small nation simply trying to survive. Strategy fans will discover the most authentic real-time simulation of World War II to date, with authentic historical figures battling on land, sea, and air with period-accurate armies, vehicles, and newly discovered weapons of mass destruction – along with plenty of diplomatic and trade tactics.

Runemaster is an RPG set in a fantasy realm based in the rich, majestic traditions of Norse mythology, casting each player in the role of a unique champion in a time of chaotic upheaval. Procedural maps and quests will ensure that no two playthroughs are identical, allowing players to tell a saga that is uniquely their own. Explore vast vistas through the six worlds of Norse myth, command troops in tactical combat, and define your champion through the choices they make.
