hearts-of-iron-iv-waking-the-tigerEighty years ago, the people of China rallied together to fight a ruthless invader – another in a long line of invaders. For a brief moment, the post-revolutionary squabbles that followed the end of the imperial line were put aside to defend the nation. But that is just one possible timeline. History is not fixed, and Paradox offers you the chance to change it once again with the release of Hearts of Iron IV: Waking the Tiger on March 8.

Waking the Tiger is the next expansion for Hearts of Iron IV, Paradox Development Studio’s best-selling World War II grand strategy wargame. With new focus trees, revised battle systems and new alternate historical paths for the major Axis powers, Waking the Tiger will shake idle generals from their slumber.

Hearts of Iron IV: Waking the Tiger includes:

  • Chain of Command: Unite your armies under a field marshal who can take advantage of the many skills of the generals under his direction.
  • Decisions and Missions: Historical decisions and national missions give you new places to spend Political Power, as you deal with domestic politics or start special projects.
  • General Traits and Abilities: Generals’ traits can now unlock powerful Command Power abilities, allowing great flexibility and creativity.
  • Updated Axis Focus Trees: Alternate historical paths for the German Reich and Imperial Japan, including parliamentary rule in Japan and the return of the Kaiser to Germany.
  • Acclimatization: Over time, troops will learn how to survive in the desert or harsh winters, giving these veterans an edge on the battlefield.
  • And More: Capturing battlefield equipment, and a revitalized air war system that has room for Volunteer air wings.

command-the-silent-serviceAs unique as the people who crew, run and command them, submarines have served their naval arms for over a hundred years in times of peace and in times of war, in one of the most hostile environments on earth: the deep seas.

In wartime actions such as fleet battles, convoy interdiction or commerce raiding, or in peace- or crisis-time “black operations” like covert intelligence or insertion & extraction of special forces, spies and other individuals, submarines have been always seen as the tip of the naval spear and an incomparably flexible asset in modern operations.

Alone or in wolf-packs, armed with conventional or nuclear weapons and packed with the most sophisticated surveillance systems, these massive steel sharks incarnate the ancestral fear of the peril coming unseen from the depths.
Will you step down the hatch ladder and join the Silent Service?

WarfareSims and MatrixGames are proud to announce The Silent Service, the fourth DLC/Standalone to be released under the Command label!

In this new thrilling installment we turn our attention from the air- and surface/ground-centric conflicts of Shifting Sands to the depths of the high seas, as you’ll explore the progression of submarine operations from the Korean War right up to today’s headlines. Witness first-hand how technological advances like the snorkel, nuclear power, cruise and ballistic missiles, silencing measures and advanced sensors, computers and weapons have radically expanded both the remit and capabilities of the submarine platform – and how its hunters above and below the waves improved their own gear and tactics to keep up in the race.

Eighteen standalone scenarios (six of them in a WW3 mini-campaign), played either in ascending difficulty or chronological order, walk you through the nuances of modern submarine operations, in control of a wide range of submarine classes from both the East and West, in conditions ranging from peacetime to crisis to all-out war.

  • 18 intense standalone scenarios (six of them part of a WW3 mini-campaign) written by Rory Noonan, CMANO community veteran: each scenario is accompanied by era-authentic mission briefings placing you into the scene of action
  • A wide range of introductory tutorials, designed to teach you how to get into the game in an approachable and accessible way
  • Underwater warfare utilizing CMANO’s award-winning simulation engine – with new wrinkles specific to the submarine domain

Command: The Silent Service can be played as a separate game (with the possibility to upgrade it to the base game with all the available database and scenarios at any point in time). Alternatively, it can be integrated as a new set of scenarios for owners of the original Command: Modern Air/Naval Operations Game of Year Edition!
