#pdxcon HEARTS OF IRON 4: What we learned from CK2/EU4: Make the playability & replayability better. It shouldn't be a chore to play.

#pdxcon hearts of iron 4 will have more focus on playability, slightly easier learning curve.
HEARTS OF IRON 4: Battle plans can include bombing targets, movement, etc.
Hearts of Iron IV: Want learning curve to be easier, without removing depth.
Battle plans you draw on the map will actually give appropriate orders. Mark where armies go, bombs drop, etc and it'll do it
HEARTS OF IRON 4: "Deep Political System". Political leaders are fewer, but more important. Ideas you can unlock & implement.
HEARTS OF IRON 4: Ideas can include neutrality stances, for example.
Hearts of Iron 4 will have deeper politics system as well, and ideas like in EU4

#pdxcon HEARTS OF IRON 4: Strategic Warfare. Not everything is on a single-province level.
HEARTS OF IRON 4: Air raids & submarine stuff can happen over larger areas instead of province-by-province micro.
New, more-detailed tech trees.
