Paradox Interactive released today the fourth entry in their single and multiplayer war simulation and strategy games, “Hearts of Iron IV.”
Released via Steam, “Hearts of Iron IV” is sold in three different tiers: Cadet Edition for $39.99, Colonel Edition for $49.99, and Field Marshal Edition for $89.99. The Cadet Edition comes with the digital base game, along with a digital wallpaper and a forum icon. The Colonel Edition comes all of the contents of the Cadet Edition, as well as an extra forum icon and a content pack containing cosmetic warships and tanks (depending on the player’s chosen country). Lastly, the Field Marshal Edition comes with all of the previous items, along with a third forum icon, exclusive forum avatars, an expansion pass worth $39.99 (good to cover the first two game expansions), digital art book, and soundtrack by heavy metal band Sabaton.
Aside from the contents of each edition, players will also receive the first downloadable content for free, called “Poland: United and Ready.” This free content will come with the necessary models and assets to let players run Poland as they see fit during the war. Those who prefer something else can choose from seven other countries, or “National Focus,” by default.
Based on the events of World War II, “Hearts of Iron IV” gives players the choice of whether to defend their nation or attack their neighbors. Players also have the option of either starting their timeline at 1936 to prepare for the oncoming war, or at 1939 to enter the already ongoing war.
