Paradox Development Studio announced that its grand strategy wargame Hearts of Iron IV has sold one million copies, making it the third title of the studio to achieve this milestone, after Crusader Kings II and Europa Universalis IV. To celebrate the one million milestone and its second anniversary, Paradox Interactive announced a special physical bundle for collectors and newcomers alike, that includes a special historical diorama designed by Power Up Factory.
The Hearts of Iron IV Anniversary Edition will include:
- Historical Diorama from Power Up Factory: A hand-painted collector’s diorama from the experts of game memorabilia. This diorama depicts an alternate history, with the Italian army raising its flag over the ruins of London.
- Hearts of Iron IV: Man the Guns: The newest expansion to Hearts of Iron brings greater depth and customization to the naval aspect of war, new National Focus options for the United States, unique actions for democracies and much more.
- Hearts of Iron IV Base Game: A Steam key of the best-selling grand strategy wargame that tests your understanding of subtlety, supply and strategy to keep or share with a friend.
When we released the game, we didn't know it was going to be such a success. We did not dare make a big physical collector’s edition. It feels great to be able to make something like that now - both as Game Director and as someone who loves miniatures!
In addition, Paradox Interactive also announced a new expansion for Hearts of Iron IV titled "Man the Guns". This expansion adds greater depth to the naval side of the war, including the ability to design your warships in more detail. You can also refit older ships so that they are more in line with the latest technology.
This expansion also introduces new options for the democratic nations, including new paths for the United States and other great free nations. Explore alternate histories or fully mobilize the arsenal of democracy. Man the Guns will accompanied by a large, free update available to everyone who owns Hearts of Iron IV.
Hearts of Iron IV offers players unparalleled flexibility in exploring new historical paths and pursuing hundreds of “what if?” alternate futures, tied to a powerfully flexible war planning system that gives people control over wide fronts, amphibious operations and the air and sea. The game is available for PC.
