On Steam it wouldn't be allowed, as we moderate that away, but I'm sure there are third party websites where that exists.

Here is my personal description of each DLC and why you might want one of them. (Im biased I know, but I just want you to make the right decision for yourself) ^^


Trial of Allegiance: Adds Focus Trees for Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Paraguay, Uruguay (Purchase if you want to play in that region with those countries)

Arms Against Tryanny: Adds International Market & Military Industrial Organization Mechanics as well as Focus Trees for Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Norway and Iceland (If you want more peace time mechanics and more action in northen europe then this would be for you)

Man the Guns: A completely rehauled Navy system with ship designer similar to the NSB Tank Designer, and a bunch of naval changes alongisde a new focus tree for USA, UK, Mexico, Netherlands, (so if you light democracy and boats, this one might be for you. (

Users can input their own tags into the game, and its a general "meme" to input that into every PDX game at release.

Hello, Community Manager Katten here. I want to begin by thanking you all for the feedback we have received on our two latest news posts regarding the DLC Integration and Trial of Allegiance Reception & Thoughts. We are reading all your comments and are working on responding to as many as possible.


Steam Store Changes Since our update last week, which added "Country Pack" to the beginning of the names for Battle for the Bosporus and Trial of Allegiance, we have received more feedback about the unclear naming of our DLCs. Of particular concern is the Subscription, referred to as the "Expansion Subscription," which may suggest to some that it only includes expansions when it actually encompasses all DLCs for the game. As a result, we have made the following changes to provide better transparency:

  • Hearts of Iron IV: Eastern Front Planes Pack > Unit Pack - Hearts of Iron IV: Eastern Front Planes
  • Hearts of ...

Hello everyone!

Our latest Open Beta is now Live, see patch notes below. It includes the upcoming merger of Waking the Tiger, Death or Dishonor and Together for Victory into base game. You will still see them in your launcher but deactivating them will have no effect.
Remember this branch is a work-in-progress that has yet to go through our full release QA process, so while we try to keep relatively stable you may experience new issues or crashes. The beta is available under "open_beta" on steam :)

Feel free to leave your feedback in this thread or in the bug report fo... Read more

Headbomb said: That's a very nice gesture in light of recent, uh, reviews. A lot of birds are getting hit. I really appreciate the fact that you can now rely on previously-locked mechanics, it's always nice to have more options. Oh, and "country pack" naming change is welcome!
Arheo: I guess it could seem related, but this was a decision we took a while back. It takes longer than a week to prepare a full rollin :D

Greetings all!

Today marks the first dev diary since the release of Trial of Allegiance, so we’ll be looking back over how things went, and community reactions in a little more detail than usual. While I would have loved to have some data on player choices and interactions for today’s diary, our analytics engine is busy chugging away. So, we’ll have to hold off on that until the machine spirit has assessed the incoming preponderance of data.

The Elephant in the Room
It would be hard to talk about Trial of Allegiance without first mentioning that we’re acutely aware of its critical reception from fans. I see no reason not to be transparent about this, and I’m going to use today as an opportunity to talk about what it means to us and how we analyze reactions, so let’s dive into some of the facts:

Everything’s on Fire!
Well, actually no. Trial of Allegiance has thus far been one of our most stable releases in terms of bugs and player-en... Read more
