Hearts Of Iron IV’s Death Or Dishonor Expansion Revealed

Paradox Interactive has announced the next expansion pack for Hearts Of Iron IV, and the studio has named it Death or Dishonor. This expansion focuses on four of the smaller nations caught up in World War II with Yugoslavia, Czechoslovakia, Hungary, and Romania, and the struggles they face as Germany closes in from the west and Russia from the East.


There will be National Focus trees for each country allowing you to decide how each gets through the war,  There will also be some updates added to the game which will improve the map display and design, allowing for players to follow the changes occurring more clearly. Air gameplay has also been improved so it easier to command air forces. The full list of updates and additions is below.

  1. Revamp of Air Gameplay: Take to the skies with new mechanics and quality of life updates that make it easier to bring your airpower to bear.
  2. Equipment Conversion: Update your arsenal by converting older units — or make use of captured enemy vehicles and gear.
  3. New Music and Art: Three new thematic musical tracks from composer Andreas Waldetoft, new art content for the four focus nations, and new troop voiceovers.
  4. New Diplomatic and Puppet Interactions: License military technology to bring other nations’ weapons to the field or sell your advances to the highest bidder. Fascist countries get new subject levels like Reichskommissariat, with access to licenses, industry and strategic resources. The instated governments are held in an iron grip, making it harder for them to break free.
  5. Improved Map Design and Display: the world map has been clarified to make it easier to follow the action around the world. New impassable areas create tactical choke-points and more historical gameplay.

Hearts Of Iron IV’s Death Or Dishonor will cost $9.99.
