Paradox Interactive have announced a new DLC expansion for Hearts of Iron IV. Titled 'Waking The Tiger', the expansion focuses on China during the invasion by Imperial Japan at the start of World War Two. It will bring a host of improvements to the game alongside a more detailed focus at the Asian front of WW2, which regularly gets forgotten about by Western audiences.
The trailer for Waking The Tiger can be seen here or at the end of this post. Prior to World War Two, China was a divided country. It's long history of imperialism has come to an end, and the divide between the Nationalist Republic and the Communists under Mao has left the country weakened - at which point the Japanese invade and World War Two first begins.
Here is a list of features coming to Waking The Tiger, which include new historical possibilities for the German side as well.
Our reviewer Joe Donnelly really enjoyed Hearts of Iron IV, saying "although it’s molded around just ten years of history, it offers so much historical background and variable outcomes, and as such packs a mightier punch than might be at first expected... there is rarely a dull moment".
Hearts of Iron IV: Waking The Tiger will be out "soon" and cost $19.99/£15.49.
