'Hearts of Iron IV' Celebrates One Million Sold With Retail Anniversary Edition

by Rainier on May 19, 2018 @ 8:26 a.m. PDT

Hearts of Iron IV is a strategy game that challenges players to face the brutal conflict of World War II in a multifaceted grand strategy game.

In Hearts of Iron IV history can be fully relived or rewritten from the perspective of a global superpower attempting to change the world, or a small nation simply trying to survive. World War II is at your fingertips as you guide your nation, plan your research, build you forces and design sweeping battle plans that will put the world at your feet.

Take control of any nation in the world and guide it through humanity’s most trying hours. With a new and improved battleplan system, you will be able to direct sweeping movements of troops through steppes, deserts and jungles. Area and mission based systems take the micromanagement out of naval and air combat. Strategy fans will discover the most authentic real-time simulation of World War II to date, with authentic historical figures battling on land, sea, and air with period-accurate armies, vehicles, and newly discovered weapons of mass destruction – along with plenty of diplomatic and trade tactics.

Paradox Development Studio announced that its grand strategy wargame Hearts of Iron IV has sold one million copies, making it the third of its historical titles, after Crusader Kings II and Europa Universalis IV, to hit the one million market, and is evidence of a strong and durable market for challenging games about our shared past.

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.

Hearts of Iron IV celebrates the one million milestone and its second anniversary by announcing a special physical bundle for collectors and newcomers alike, that includes a special historical diorama designed by Power Up Factory.

"When we released the game, we didn't know it was going to be such a success,” says Dan Lind, Game Director for Hearts of Iron IV.  “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!".

Mike Horn, CEO and President of Power Up Factory, is also very excited about the alternate history model his team got to design - the Italian Army raising its flag on the ruins of London.

“We’ve made a lot of interesting collectibles here, but this one’s a first for sure,” says Horn. “I lived in the Washington, DC area for many years and saw the real life Iwo Jima statue countless times. To now be able to make a creative interpretation of it? Amazing!”

Lind adds, "You know you have the right job when you can dream up alt-history scenarios for your game and someone makes a big ass amazing statue of it!"

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.
If you want to spend a little extra, your Anniversary Edition can also include keys for every other Hearts of Iron IV expansion: Together for Victory, Death or Dishonor and Waking the
Tiger
