Description

From the convoy attacks in the Battle of the Atlantic to the fierce carrier battles on the Pacific front, the Second World War saw naval innovation in both tactics and technology. The war at sea takes center stage in Hearts of Iron IV: Man the Guns, a new expansion to Paradox Development Studio’s popular strategy wargame.

Design your own ships and refit older models. Alter your convoy routes to avoid hungry wolf packs. Embrace or circumvent naval treaties and deal with the diplomatic consequences.

Man the Guns also introduces new alternate history paths for the major democracies of the war and gives the freedom loving nations of the world more freedom to act before the war forces their hand.

Features:

  • New Alternate American History: Use the American Congress to push for reform, at the risk of plunging the nation into another civil war.
  • New Alternate British History: Push for early decolonization of the British Empire or restore the ancient privileges of the monarchy.
  • Ship Design: Research new components and refit older vessels to take advantage of new knowledge. Outfit your submarines with snorkels or improved stealth.
  • Admiral Traits and Skills: Tailor and level up your Admirals with new traits and skills.
  • Governments in Exile: Welcome a government in exile to your democracy, boosting their legitimacy in return for more manpower and elite troops fighting to free their homeland.
  • Other National Focuses: New national focuses for The Netherlands and Mexico.
  • Naval Mines: Protect your coasts from invasion or assault with anti-ship mines, or clear a path through enemy mines before you make the big push.
  • Shipping Route Controls: Plot new routes for your shipping and navies by marking areas you want to avoid.
  • Naval Treaties: Struggle to keep the peace by following internationally agreed upon rules, or creatively defy the world consensus by exceeding your limits.
  • Amphibious Landing Vehicles: Add power to your beach landing by researching and producing specialized combat vehicles for your marines.
  • New Music: Original music composed specifically for the Man the Guns expansion.

  1. Tons of stuff with this one
    by Dubbs09, USA - May 8th 2019

    Some Paradox expansions can seem light, but this one brings a lot to the table and in a lot of different ways. I've never loved navy, but the changes do have me more interested. Then new focus trees/alt paths, fuel....it changes a ton of stuff

  2. It's a good HoI4 DLC... a very good one indeed
    by Andres Sanchez, Spain - May 5th 2019

    Man the Guns brings some features already developed for land combat to the sea. We've got new skills for admirals, and a whole new design system for ships and fleets.

    HoI4 DLCs usually give us new content for countries. UK and USA new alternate history paths are good enough. Opting for Mexico or the Netherlands (instead of countries like Spain or Turkey) may seem not so urgent but they're fine.

    Man the Guns improves HoI4 overall, and it gives you some new ways to play the USA or UK. Highly recommended.

  3. Could be better
    by Lexkun, Germany - Apr 20th 2019

    There is some new stuff to play around with. While the expanded country trees are nice the more interesting features were added in the free patch already. Still okay but maybe wait for a discount.
