Earn Your Stripes in Hearts of Iron IV: Waking the Tiger

STOCKHOLM - 15 November 2017

The Chinese Republic replaced the tottering empire only decades earlier, and is unprepared for its greatest challenge. China is ideologically divided as well, providing an appetizing target for aggressive neighbors. But the Chinese people are resilient and can unite to protect their homeland.

In Hearts of Iron IV: Waking the Tiger, Paradox Development Studio focuses on the Chinese front - the first front of the Second World War. Here, Japan turned its imperialist appetites before the other great powers got involved. New National Focuses dedicated to Nationalist and Communist China guide you through alternate histories that could save or unite the Chinese nation. But under whose guidance?


Hearts of Iron IV: Waking the Tiger
will be available soon on major digital distribution channels for the suggested retail price of $19.99 and is available for pre-order now: HERE

Features in Hearts of Iron IV: Waking the Tiger include:
  • Chinese National Focuses: Divided and under threat, China has great reserves of manpower and diplomatic flexibility
  • Chain of Command: Unite your armies under a field marshal who can take advantage of the many skills of the generals under his direction.
  • Decisions and Missions: Historical decisions and national missions give your new places to spend Political Power, as you deal with domestic politics or start special projects.
  • General Traits and Abilities: Generals’ traits can now unlock powerful Command Power abilities, allowing great flexibility and creativity.
  • Updated Japanese Focus Tree: More attention to the Asian campaign and alternate history paths, including restoring Civilian Government or allying with the feared Soviets.
  • Updated German Focus Tree: New possible histories for the German Reich, including the chance to replace Hitler with the exiled Kaiser, or lead a democratic Germany against Stalin.
  • Acclimatization: Over time, troops will learn how to survive in the desert or harsh winters, giving these veterans an edge on the battlefield.
  • And More: Capturing battlefield equipment, new music and sounds and a revitalized air war system that has room for Volunteer air wings.
As usual, Waking the Tiger will also be accompanied by a free patch - 1.5 Cornflakes.

Awesome! Will we also be getting focuses for warlord states or other Asian nations?
yes. China is too big and complex to be represented by one tree. Follow upcoming diaries and we will be showcasing them

So it's Japan! Nice to see it.

A shame it's locked behind the DLC while we are stuck with the suboptimal vanilla tree.
