Hearts Of Iron IV Celebrates One-Year Anniversary With Free Anniversary Pack

It's been a year since the release of the critically acclaimed World War II Grand Strategy Game, Hearts of Iron IV. To celebrate the game's first anniversary, Paradox Interactive released the Hearts of Iron IV Anniversary Pack as free DLC.

The Anniversary Pack includes new in-game content to provide players with a richer and more detailed Hearts of Iron IV experience, featuring new voiceovers for Polish troops – an inclusion frequently requested by the player community.

Players can download the new content for free today:

  • New voiceovers for troops while playing as Poland
  • 20 new portrait selections for generals and leaders across nations in Africa, Asia, Europe, and South America
  • 20 new custom division icons

Since the game's release one year ago, Hearts of Iron IV has built a dedicated and growing community of players. Today, Hearts of Iron IV continues to be played by an average of 250,000 monthly active users (MAU). Over half of those players enjoy using one or more of the community’s creative game mods, including “Millenium Dawn,” which brings the war into the modern era, “The Great War,” which pulls it back to World War I, or “Kaiserreich,” an alternate historical setting that presumes Germany had won the first world war. More mods and newer players continue to flock to Hearts of Iron IV, setting the stage for more new war stories for years to come.

In addition to the Anniversary Pack, players can also look forward to new content next week with the release of Hearts of Iron IV: Death or Dishonor. This new DLC pack releases on the 14th of June and it will be available for $9.99. Expansion Pass owners can download Death or Dishonor for free.
