Virtual Programming today released Armageddon, the update to Hearts of Iron 2: Doomsday. The new release picks up where Hearts of Iron II: Doomsday left off, and includes two entirely new alternative history scenarios presenting fresh challenges to veteran players. The scenarios have variable end dates alongside a variety of new game options, and the update includes numerous new units. New attachments for naval units enable players to scrape or upgrade old ships, and players can build land units with brigades already attached. An air naval combat system radically alters the combat balance, and new damage algorithms for that system make organizing more important while allowing air units to fight longer. Armageddon is priced at $10, and requires Hearts of Iron 2: Doomsday running on Mac OS X 10.3.9 or later to play.
