Hearts of Iron: Road to War Coming to XBLA

By Michelle Balsan, 4 years ago
Not so long ago, there was a major trend in gaming to release World War II themed titles. Then, those eventually gave way to games featuring modern conflicts.

Cyberfront Corporation is looking to bring a little bit of the gaming spotlight back to WWII with their upcoming Strategy title Hearts of Iron: Road to War. In the game, you will be able to "take charge on any front, as any country, and through a variety of scenarios". Hearts of Iron takes place between 1936 and 1948, and it will be up to you to command the war efforts as well as the many other elements a nation must consider during wartime so that you can claim victory over your enemies.

Here are several screens from the title:

According to Hearts of Iron: Road to War's game page on Xbox.com, the game will be released on the Xbox LIVE Arcade on April 4th. However, as we recently learned, this is not the same as an actual release date confirmation, so we'll be sure to get that detail, as well as the price, to you as soon as we have it.
