On this Armistice Day and after several hard months of development, we are proud to finally announce the release of the Open Beta of Hearts of Iron IV: The Great War on the Steam Workshop
Hearts of Iron IV: The Great War is a Mod for Hearts of Iron IV developed on our free time as a side project. This Mod will not only allow you to play through the early 20th Century but also allow you to play and witness the events before and after the First World War.
The game starts either in 1910 or 1914. Major Wars and Events such as the the Italo-Turkish War, the Balkans Wars, the Mexican and the Xinhai Revolutions, the First World War and many more are integrated while taking into account the mechanics given by the last creation of Paradox Interactive in the Grand Strategy Game.
The gameplay is close to the Vanilla one's. We do not want to make it too complex and allow the greatest number of players to try out a new experience, from the Battle of Britain and the bloody fighting of Stalingrad to the War Trench in Verdun.
We're aiming to Produce a model with as much of a "Vanilla" feel as possible. We will try to make as minor changes as possible to the basic fundamentals of the game, simply allowing the player to play through the First World War Erea.
