East vs. West Explains Cold War Hearts of Iron


Paradox's next Hearts Of Iron game is going to be called East vs. West. As the name suggests, it takes a long hard look at that point in history when East and West peered at each other through expensive binoculars and fondled both over-engineered tanks and over-proliferated nuclear weapons. The game allows players to players to take control of a nation and guide them through that tricky period, with the inevitable counter-factual possibilities of starting World War III when you actually just wanted to store your missiles on a lovely hot tropical Caribbean island.

This is the first developer diary in a new series, with the devs talking about the scope of the new game, and how the Hearts Of Iron model fits a Cold War scenario.
