    Paradox Interactive Convention 2010 Announcement #3 - Hearts of Iron 3 Patch

    New Hearts of Iron 3 Patch in the Works

    NEW YORK - January 19, 2010 – Amidst preparations for the Paradox Interactive Convention 2010, the Paradox team today announced patch 1.4 for Hearts of Iron 3 as the PIC of the day and are glad to report that it is in the final stages of development.

    ”This patch focuses on some of the most requested updates for Hearts of Iron 3 and I look forward to seeing our fans enjoy their gameplay even more after this release,” said Johan Andersson, Head of Development for Paradox Interactive.

    The updates in patch 1.4 include:
    • Optimization: The patch optimizes game performance late in the game as well as during startup, reduction of interface lag and memory usage.
    • Balance: Several balancing issues have been addressed including; submarines are now strengthened in convoy warfare, paratroopers are now weaker and cannot be abused as easily. The leadership and technology for most non-major European countries have been overhauled, to add new gameplay depth.
    • AI: The AI will now perform better on the battlefield as well as the planning of fights.
    • Bugfixes: Several bugs have been fixed including the supply network breaking apart, non-exact numbers in the budget sliders and corrupted national flags on some graphics cards.

    The patch is currently being tested and the team plans to release it in public beta in February.

    Bison: I'm sorry... I don't remember any of it.
    Chun Li: You don't remember?
    Bison: For you, the day Bison graced your village was the most important day of your life. But for me... it was Tuesday.

    Hurray for "public beta". Very very nice.

    Here is hope that this will remain a constant for all future projects, patches or not.

    There is a small bug in the government of Brazil

    When you start the game in 1936 it has a right wing government when it should be left wing, and all the ministers are left wing, it is only the government type which is right wing :P
