Paradox is getting ready to release the mental looking Hearts of Iron IV at the start of next month and keen gamers can buy in now.
Hot on the heels of the excellent Stellaris, Paradox will be hoping they have another hit on their hands with Hearts of Iron IV. The game is available to pre-order now and comes in three different editions and there’s a stack of free stuff also being added including the free DLC Poland: United and Ready National Focus Pack.This pack gives Poland a unique national focus tree, several 3D vehicle models, 2D art and additional leader portraits.
The different pre-order versions are as follows:
- The Cadet edition is a standard Hearts of Iron IV release, but a pre-order will come with a new icon for the official Paradox forums and a new wallpaper. (£34.99)
- The Colonel edition includes everything the Cadet version does, and also one extra icon and a special Tank Pack to add variety to the vehicles running through your enemy lines. (£41.99)
- The Field Marshal edition includes everything from the lower ranked versions as well as an exclusive forum avatar and an expansion pass that will include the first two Expansion DLC packs for Hearts of Iron IV, whenever they are released. (£67.99)
Ever pre-order also comes with the following extras.
- German March Order – music pack, composed by Andreas Waldetoft.
- Allied Radio – music pack, composed by Tobias Gustafsson.
- Hearts of Iron: War Stories Gamebook – a branching interactive narrative where the player’s choices matter. War Stories is written by Aaron Rosenburg and features a young British RAF pilot during the Battle of Britain.
Paradox always do a good job with their free content and DLCs.
