BERLIN - 19 October 2019 - The quickest way to kill an enemy is to do it from within. Learn its secrets. Sabotage its industry. Break its codes. Strike at vulnerable points behind the front lines. Send agents to build a network of informants and a secret army that will rise against the occupiers. Resistance is never futile.

Paradox Development Studios is happy to announce Hearts of Iron IV: La Résistance, an expansion to the best-selling grand strategy wargame. La Résistance introduces a new espionage system to the game, and also increases the range of interactions and options with resistance movements in occupied territory.


Features of Hearts of Iron IV: La Résistance includes:
  • New Focus Trees for France: New National Focuses for Free France and the Vichy Regime, as well as an option for conservatives to restore the old French Monarchy.
  • More in Depth Spanish Campaign: New National Focuses for Republican and Nationalist Spain, as well as an expanded Spanish Civil War that can spiral into a wider conflict..
  • Portuguese Focuses: Navigate the pressure of the World War, or involve yourself in the Spanish Conflict with the new Focus Tree for Portugal (updated point)
  • Espionage: Use you Intelligence Agency to train spies to specialize in certain types of information warfare and develop passive resistance to enemy espionage, then send them on special operations.
  • Support Resistance: Use your agents to assist allied resistance movements, giving them what they need to damage the enemy.
  • Collaboration Governments: Use your agents to prepare the ground for collaborators to fill the void once you’ve conquered your target.
  • Code Cracking: Decrypt enemy communications to gain short term battlefield advantages.
  • Recon units: Scout planes can provide useful information on nearby areas while armored cars help in detecting and suppressing resistance activities.

As usual, La Résistance will be accompanied by a significant free update to Hearts of Iron IV, available to all players. This update will also include a full reworking of the resistance system and many other smaller quality of life improvements.

Looking good!
 
Portugal focus tree.
Nice.
 
Can't wait to see more about espionage!
 
Amazing trailer, can't wait to see more details on the new mechanics!

Does this confirm that there'll be no Italy FT for this DLC?
 
I'm mostly concerned with the bugfixes in the free update, but it looks like the battleplanner is going to be getting its long-awaited overhaul!
 
No Italy in a DLC with Mediterranean countries and civil wars. My sentiments about the DLC are mixed now, I do love what it's being introduced but Italy is nearly as bad as the USSR and this was a great chance to rework them.

That unless it comes with the free patch entirely and that's something I doubt it will happen

"Interface improvements" are probably just going to be QOL interface stuff.
Usually it's speculated that the DLC after this one is going to be USSR/eastern front focused and give us a land combat overhaul.

Looks excellent. Still wanted an Italy Rework, though.

Can't wait to flood my enemies with waves of spies. :))

I think it's a bit early to say that Italy will not be included, they didn't confirm anything yet. Maybe they are just keeping the new Italian focus tree a surprise.
