About Hearts of Iron IV: No Step Back

About this DLC

The Second World War’s hardest fighting was on the Eastern Front of Europe. Rival dictatorships threw men and machines into a bitter struggle through sun and snow, marsh and steppe, and, in the end, the Soviet Union emerged victorious as one of the most powerful nations on earth.

No Step Back is the newest expansion for Hearts of Iron IV, Paradox Interactive’s grand strategy wargame about the world crisis of the 1930s and World War II. This expansion adds greater detail for many nations in Eastern Europe, unique game systems to reflect Soviet politics, and many improvements to the military aspect of the game.

Features of Hearts of Iron IV: No Step Back include:

New Soviet National Focuses: Communist Soviet rulers must also deal with a government system full of distrust and betrayal but players can lift up party opposition to the dictator, or even pursue a reactionary path of restored monarchy.

New Polish National Focuses: Write a new history of Poland, with options to reform the government, entrench the military dictatorship, or support a popular pro-Soviet uprising.

New Baltic National Focuses: Shared alternate history paths for Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania, as well as unique paths for each.

Army Officer Corps: Build a general staff, drawing on the talents and expertise of available officers to take advantage of changes in technology and tactics.

Army Spirits: Emphasize certain characteristics of your military arms, adding general bonuses to certain units types or even aiding division design.

Supply System Updates: Scorched Earth tactics, floating harbors and special supply units added to the logistics system.

Tank Designer: Design your own armored force using modules prioritizing speed, gun power, armor or even production cost. 

Railway Guns:  Commission the grandest, most prestigious of artillery pieces, uniquely designed to deal with entrenched foes, and fortified positions."

get on sale if you love HOI4

Depends on how much you love HOI4, because parts of the DLC is free to all HOI4 players. Try it out in an online multiplayer session, as multiplayer hosts can hosts games that reflect their own DLC owning status. Owning the DLC for singleplayer purposes is alright, but definitely get the DLC on sale, as its not worth full price for changing some parts of the game (personally don't think it adds enough new content to justify price).

Worth the price if on sale, but definetly a worthwile addition. No need to rush the purchase tho.

Surprisingly not as buggy as I expected for a paradox release, and the much needed supply overhaul was long-overdue. Also train go choo-choo.

The new expansion to HoI4 pretty much revamps the whole supply chain in the game. Adding new supply routes and depots, which the player now has to manage, to have a successful war. For now, in my gameplay run, in normal vanilla mode, the supply system seems to be broken a little bit, attacking USSR without any supply problem for some reason, so... Maybe they will fix it in the future. One nice thing is that now the game has trains.
