Stellaris and Hearts of Iron 4 release dates revealed


Paradox Interactive revealed release dates for two of its upcoming games. Stellaris, the Crusader-Kings-in-space grand strategy, will arrive on May 9. Hearts of Iron 4, the World War 2 strategy game, has its own D-Day on June 6 (which is actually D-Day).

You can watch a new trailer for Stellaris below, and below that, a new developer diary for Hearts of Iron 4. We got to take a look at both games at GDC, and we'll be sharing our impressions early next week.

Chris started playing PC games in the 1980s, started writing about them in the early 2000s, and (finally) started getting paid to write about them in the late 2000s. Following a few years as a regular freelancer, PC Gamer hired him in 2014, probably so he'd stop emailing them asking for more work. Chris has a love-hate relationship with survival games and an unhealthy fascination with the inner lives of NPCs. He's also a fan of offbeat simulation games, mods, and ignoring storylines in RPGs so he can make up his own.
