Paradox Interactive have released their second country pack for their popular WWII grand-strategy title, Hearts of Iron IV. This time focusing on the Eastern European nations of Hungary, Romania, Czechoslovakia, and Yugoslavia,
Hearts of Iron IV’s second expansion, Death of Dishonor, couldn’t be more different than the first -Together for Victory, which focused on the commonwealth dominions. Instead it focuses on some of the prominent territories between Nazi Germany and Bolshevik Soviet Union: Hungary, Romania, Czechoslovakia, and Yugoslavia.
Each of the nations gains its own national focus trees; giving them options to become a new front for their neighbours through alliances, or to seek allies elsewhere and set up for the long-haul. With enough preparation, and the right mindset, can they retain control and turn the tides of the war that is brewing?
There’s a fair few more features added in the expansion, which you can find below in the feature’s list from Paradox’ storepage,
” Features List
Four New Focus Trees: Experience the war from the difficult perspectives of Hungary, Romania, Czechoslovakia, and Yugoslavia.
Equipment Conversion: Update your arsenal by converting older units — or make use of captured enemy vehicles and gear.
New Music and Art: 3 new thematic musical tracks from composer Andreas Waldetoft, new art content for the four focus nations, and new troop voiceovers.
- 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.”
The trading of licenses and ability to recycle equipment certainly sound like game-changers when faced with the early aggression the nations normally fall to, or get picked apart under.

Hearts of Iron IV: Death of Dishonor, is available on both Steam, and Paradox’ own store.
