Hearts of Iron IV is a strategy game that takes place in World War II, but it’s not your average WWII. Players control the countries and forces fighting on a grand scale as they see fit, with each nation aligning itself to one of four main ideologies: fascism, communism, democracy or libertarianism. The expansion adds more depth to decision-making by giving players the ability to interact with their populace via propaganda tools and trade agreements.,

The “hearts of iron 4 mods” is a game that has been out for quite some time now. The expansion to the game, called “By Blood Alone”, adds new features and content to the base game.
