expansion subscription releaes for hearts of iron iv game on linux mac windows pc

Expansion subscription releases for Hearts of Iron IV with the games Linux, Mac, and Windows PC builds. Thanks to the creative minds behind Paradox Development Studio. Available now on Steam.

In the six years since the release of Hearts of Iron IV. Paradox Interactive’s grand strategy wargame has expanded many times to reflect the size and complexity of World War II. Hence the new expansion subscription. Offering more detailed army and naval management. While offering new espionage and resistance systems have been added. Not to mention the many new alternate history paths. Doing so for the major nations of the world in this confusing time.

If you own Hearts of Iron IV but have found it hard to keep up with this growth. Paradox Interactive has introduced the expansion subscription model for players unable or unwilling to commit to six years of added content. This is very helpful for new players who are unsure where to start when buying expansions or country packs. A smart idea, and maybe long overdue for Paradox games.
