Katten here. Today marks the day before our 8th anniversary of Hearts of Iron IV. Eight long years on the frontlines, millions of provinces painted in strange colours, thousands of wild encirclements, and countless amazing mods have been created. This year, we also hit a significant milestone: 1.5 million monthly active users! Important Note: If you are unfamiliar with MAU, it is a behind-the-scenes metric that tracks the number of unique individuals who play the game each month.

To celebrate, we have something special planned. Last year, we teased an upcoming expansion, but I think we can do even better! This year, we are celebrating what we call Anniversary Week! Five days packed with activities, from something you've been eagerly waiting for to something you've been asking for. How long have I worked here? Never mind that. Let's get to our Anniversary Roadmap!

The Roadmap is our way of showcasing what each fun day contains during the Anniversary Celebration.

  • We are starting tomorrow, June 6th, with a Top Secret Reveal that we have uncovered through an enigma cipher.
  • On June 7th, we celebrate our Discord server hitting 100,000 Generals by giving away 500 copies of Hearts of Iron IV! More info below.
  • On the 8th, we have a smaller secondary announcement with something you might not have been expecting.
  • On the 9th, we are ending our giveaway and sending out the keys. But that's not all! For the fourth year in a row, we are hosting the Community Cup, this year organized by Dankus Memecus[www.twitch.tv]. We'll grab our popcorn and soda and watch which team takes the grand prize of €2,500. But there is still another day!
  • On the 10th, our secondary announcement has something more to show you. After a long wait, our next War Effort Update will go live with some much-requested fixes and changes!

Now, I mentioned a giveaway above, so let's get into how you can join! First, you need to join our Discord[discord.gg]. Second, go to the Hearts of Iron News channel and press the reaction button on our Giveaway message! If you can't see it, make sure you select the News role in the role selection process. On the 9th, we'll let the AI take the wheel and pick 500 winners, who will be automatically notified by our PDXBot, so make sure you keep your DMs open! Terms of participation are available HERE[acrobat.adobe.com].

I think that's all for today, but wait, is that a countdown on our YouTube channel? You might want to start looking for clues on my social media accounts.
