Thread: HoI Platinum question

  1. #1

    HoI Platinum?

    I see a platinum version will be selling for $20 in the USA. What does this platinum version include?

    Yeah. I wanna know what the Plat edition is also.
    Anyone know?

    I guess I have the same question.......

    Hmm I WAS getting the impression that HOI Platinum was a combination of HOI and the CORE Mod. (plus a few other features?)

    Is this the case?

    We really need to know what are the extras in platinum.

    (Website only says: The game features a new scenario, new events and an updated 88 page manual)

    Thanks,
    BlackHat

    According to Paradox there's nothing in Platinum that isn't available for download to owners of the original release. AFAIK it's just HoI plus C.O.R.E.; the "new scenario" is the 1944 one added in 1.06. It's mainly for people who didn't buy the original which is no longer being produced.

    Download the Fix-it-Yourself Pack for HoI 1.06c (updated 11/14/05)
    Download the Unofficial fixpack for EU3 4.1b 4/29 beta or final 11/24 patch (updated 12/25/10)
    Download the text fixpack for EU3 Divine Wind (updated 2/11/11)

    Ahhh... To quote Pro_Council from another post.

    "Platinum edition of the game which was just released and already has both the patch [1.06c?] and latest version of CORE in it

    So it appears your correct. We already have what is in Platinum availible here.

    Thanks,

    HoI Platinum question

    The announcement says that it will be released in North America. But is Paradox planning to release it elsewhere like say Europe and Russia?

    But there seems to be a graphical facelift, according to some of the screenshots....is this from CORE or perhaps HOI2?

    HoI Platinum Availability Issues - Slipping Dates

    Got a question.

    Platinum was supposed to be in US stores yesterday. I had to pre-order a copy at my local EBGames to insure they would get it. It has not arrived yet. Where it once was listed on EBGames, it is no longer there. Gamestop has pushed their availability date back from 9/21/04 to 9/27/04.

    Does Paradox know what's going on with this?

    I knew people didn't read stickies...even though it's right up there at the top of the screen just calling out to your eyes to look there...nope, nothing does it...

    At least i'm in a good mood now, so i'll even take the trouble of merging this...

    Btw, i'm guessing you meant shipping dates right?

    I read the sticky (this thread). It did not have the answer to my topic. I felt I'd get a quicker, more accurate response if this were a seperate thread.

    Shipping date was 9/21/04. EBGames and Gamestop both stated availability on 9/22/04. Amazon still states it's currently available. EBGames no longer lists it. Gamestop now says 9/27/04. I've already pre-ordered and paid for my copy of HoI:Platinum through EBGames. They say they don't have it and don't know when it's due to arrive.

    Why should I buy Platinum?

    Any comments on why it is necessary to get the latest HOI Platinum addition? It seems the platinum edition is like original HOI with core. Is this true?
