Default East vs West : A Hearts Of Iron Game

The Cold War just got cooler with this upcoming Grand Strategy Game

NEW YORK October 8, 2012

Little known fact, the Cold War was so named because it was very, very cool, and East vs. West: A Hearts of Iron Game is shaping up to be the coolest Cold War game ever made. Players will be able to take control of ANY nation in those nerve-wracking decades in a strategy game with a host of tense features, from taking issues in front of the UN Security Council to nervously watching the game's Doomsday clock.

So prepare to rise to a new historical challenge in East vs. West: A Hearts of Iron Game , the new game from BL-Logic and Paradox Development Studios set to release in Q2 2013. This grand strategy game takes you from the opening stalemate of the Cold War in 1946 to the end of over four decades of fear and apprehension in 1991.

Watch the brand new announcement trailer here:



Good news fellas first Dev Diary and Video from the East vs West team is out.

East vs West Developer diary 1 - Cold War At Your Command

Quote:
East vs. West: A Hearts of Iron Game will let you control a nation during the recent past, leading it through the remarkable time of the Cold War. Nuclear weapons, politics, the space race, spies, guerrilla warfare and the delicate art of diplomacy, this is not a game, THIS is personal.

With East vs. West, we are definitely aiming for historical accuracy and the sense that you are immersed in the great dramas of the past, but as always, how you handle this history and the choices you make within the main plots and themes is entirely up to you as a player. History is in your hands - we just supply you the tools, in a wonderful, customizable world. Even if you use those tools to lead the world down the path of the unthinkable, the destruction of humanity. Players can edit large parts of the game content and play their favorite historical moments with up to 32 friends, rivals or even bitter enemies.
Here is an introduction video for East vs West

So I'm gonna be able to go from crusader kings all the way to 1991? Eventually I suppose they will make a modern warfare HOI. Vic 2 cover WWI or not?

Love these games!

Won't it be boring with the lack of actual war?

BL Logic which is a team of 9 Devs said that the game will have 2 ways. The Cold War and The Hot War. Both paths have focuses on them. The Cold War is very diplomatic and full of threat / UN / Space Race / Spy Mini Game / Proxy Wars / Arma Race / Tech Race / Satellite States / Recognition while the Hot War is conventional warfare and maybe even Thermonuclear war once Defcon 1 is reached.

BL Logic previous game was Darkest Hour which is known for its alternative approaches on stuff that was especially not war related.

So i think its not going to be boring

The Yugoslav wars start around where the game ends.
