Paradox’s hit WWII grand strategy, Hearts of Iron 4 (currently 50% off), has received a new DLC the other day titled ‘Death or Dishonor‘. This DLC adds new gameplay options for your arsenal control, allowing you to update older units, and new diplomacy options, allowing you to lease access to other countries technology, or even to sell your own weapons to the highest bidder. Death or Dishonor also adds four new playable countries: Hungary, Romania, Czechoslovakia, and Yugoslavia. These eastern European countries are all in difficult positions, with Russia to the east, and Germany and the Axis powers to the west. What will you choose, Death or Dishonor?

Europa Universalis IV  (currently 75% off until June 19th) has also received a new DLC, called ‘Third Rome‘. This won’t be earth shattering news to EUIV players, considering the vast number of DLCs already available (28!). One of Paradoxes most successful titles, released in 2013, it quickly gained rave reviews, and even four years later it can draw 24,000 players just with a DLC release (very few new game can do this). Third Rome adds new spiritual, political, and military controls for the Russian empire. Giving Europa Universalis IV gamers plenty of reasons to revisit this modern classic.

Guide Russia to Glory or Resist the Soviet March in Third Rome and Death or Dishonor

STOCKHOLM — June 14, 2017 — Paradox Interactive, a publisher and developer that’s never rushin’ out its games, today released new content for two of its best-selling Grand Strategy games, both focused on the nations of Eastern Europe during different, formative periods in history. Third Rome, a new immersion pack for Europa Universalis IV, adds new gameplay features for the Russian empire, and is available for $9.99. 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 for $9.99. The two packs can also be purchased together in a discounted bundle for $17.98. Both packs are available today for Windows, Mac, and Linux PCs.

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.
