Death or Dishonor, a new country pack for Hearts of Iron IV, brings new events
and national focuses to the nations bordering the Soviet Union during World War
II – Romania, Czechoslovakia, Hungary, and Yugoslavia – and is available as well

In Third Rome, players will find new means to wield spiritual, political, and
military control in the Russian empire, with new ranks of government and unique
military units. Features include:
- Tsardoms and Principalities: New ranks of Russian
government with new abilities and, for Tsars, strong bonuses including the
right to claim entire States – not just provinces.
- Iconography: Commission great religious icons for
the Orthodox church, boosting your empire’s power depending on the saint you
choose to revere.
- Siberian Frontier: Russian nations can slowly
colonize uninhabited border regions, with no fear of native uprisings
Meanwhile, in Death or Dishonor, the Soviets lie on your eastern borders
while the Axis march forth from the west. Players will have to find ways to come
out of the war with their lives and/or their dignity intact. Features include:
- Four New Focus Trees: Experience the war from the
difficult perspectives of Hungary, Romania, Czechoslovakia, and Yugoslavia.
- Equipment Conversion: Update your arsenal by
converting older units -- or make use of captured enemy vehicles and gear.
- New Diplomatic and Puppet Interactions: License
military technology to bring other nations’ weapons to the field or sell
your advances to the highest bidder.
