Dev Diary: Telemetry

Hello all, and welcome back to another DevDiary! Last week, we released Battle for the Bosporus (some of you may remember it). Given that we took the number 1 top-seller spot on steam within an hour of launch, and without pre-orders, I daresay that the idea of a country pack has been a success. Now, let’s look at some Telemetry we got from the first couple of days after release! For starters, we are seeing a big increase in people playing the new countries that is not at all surprising. After re...

Protect the Straits in Hearts of Iron IV: Battle for the Bosporus

STOCKHOLM - 23 September 2020 - For centuries, the Bosporus and Dardanelles have been key to strategy in the Mediterranean. A gate that joins the Black Sea and the Mediterranean, a short crossing that divides Europe from Asia. In the middle of a world crisis, this strait is an attractive target for any great power that seeks to dominate the region. Is neutrality even possible when war arrives on your doorstep? Hearts of Iron IV: Battle for the Bosporus is a new country pack for Paradox Developme...

Way back in 2017, we released Death or Dishonor, something we called a Country Pack at the time. Back then, the community was mainly asking for big new flashy mechanics and revamps of game systems, so the initial reaction from the community ...
