Patch 1.04 beta now available

IMPORTANT: Savegames of patch 1.03 are not compatible with patch 1.04
IMPORTANT: As a general rule (with few exceptions) mods for patch 1.03 do NOT work with patch 1.04

After many months of work on the new patch, it's finally here!

Installation note for steam users: open your steam library, find "Darkest Hour a Heart of Iron Game" in the list of your games, then right click on it and select "Properties".
In the Properties, select the "Beta" tab and from there you can select the new 1.04 beta (remember to choose 1.04_rc1 - Darkest Hour 1.04 RC1 and not 1.02 - Darkest Hour 1.02)!
Just select it and close the properties, the update should begin immediately!

And now a very quick list of the changes, but please follow this link for the Dev Diary that we just wrote about the new patch. You can even find a complete patch log at the third post.

Very short list of changes:
- many ministers and cabinet fixes;
- new events for suicide of Hitler and choice of successor;
- new event for Germany to Repudiate the Locarno Treaties after the Remilitarization of the Rhineland;
- new Finnish and Soviet events to handle the Moscow Armistice;
- new ETA tooltip for units (just select a unit and place your mouse over a different province to see the tooltip with the Estimated Time of Arrival);
- new distance tooltips (both naval distance and air/land distance) between provinces (just select a province and place your mouse over another province to see the tooltip);
- major overhaul of weather and night attack and defense modifiers for air units;
- reviewed Organization Regain system: the new system will be fully moddable from misc.txt!
- added "Disengage from combat" checkbox to some naval missions (convoy raiding, move, sneak move, sea transport and amphibious assault): such fleets will break off naval combat ASAP without player intervention;
- on the other hand, fleets during amphibious assaults will be instantly detected by air and naval units searching the area for enemy fleets;
many improvements to combat logic, with many new modifiers exported to misc.txt;
- new complete event chain for the Finnish Civil War, with the struggle against the Finnish Socialist Workers' Republic, the Regency of the German King and the Baltic Sea Division of Rudiger von der Goltz;
- new events to let Germany handle the conquered territories post Brest-Litovsk Treaty: United Baltic Duchy, Kindgom of Lithuania, Regency Kingdom of Poland, Belarusian Democratic Republic and Ukranian State;
- new events for Austria-Hungary and Bulgaria to decide the future of Macedonia, Montenegro and Albania after winning the Great War;
- a complete overhaul of the Chinese and Japanese Theater, with dozens of new events in particular for 1933-1937, including the Long March, which will now be an event-driven mini-game where you have to lead your troops to safety (as the Communist) or trying to bleed the enemy to death (as the Nationalist);

This is just a short list, read about everything new here.

With the 1.03 patch we have plenty of scenarios, including the 1945 one wich is fun to play !
In my opinion is better than HoI3 because is easier to learn and the UI is really friendly for new players . Unlike Hearts of Iron 3 you can have different aproaches on the game , based on your decisions , a communist Germany for example right from the beginnig of the 1933 scenario !

On the official forum you can find many mods wich can extend the regular timeline of the game , for example New World Order 2 mod ( a Cold War Mod ) and Modern Day scenario mod !
Alternate history:Kaiserreich (What if Germany had won the First World War )
Fatherland (What if Germany had won the Second World War )

All in all I really recommend Darkest Hour !

Darkest Hour is definitely a better HoI game than HoI3, despite its age. There's no unnecessarily complex OoB system that you'd need to graduate West Point to master, there aren't a billion shapeless provinces in sparsely populated areas, and although the map and UI are pretty dated they're comfy to use. In contrast to the dryness of HoI3 which has maybe half a dozen decisions solely for the purpose of railroading the AI into doing what it's supposed to do, DH has plenty of dynamic event chains, and it feels like you're really impacting the world. DH also has more of a sandboxy feel to it, with different outcomes every game, but in HoI3 once you've played each of the 3 factions you've more or less experienced it all. Then there's the timespan, with a grand campaign in DH potentially lasting from 1914-1964, 50 years, compared to 1936-1948, or 12 years, in HoI3. And last, but definitely not least, DH is tremendously easier to mod than HoI3, and so has a very active and skilled modding community. Which brings me to my last point:

Kaiserreich: Legacy of the Weltkrieg. The amount of detail put into this alternate-history mod for Darkest Hour is pretty stunning, and is definitely a justification all on its own for buying the game. If you have even a slight interest in alt-history, you'd be doing yourself a huge favor by picking this up and installing KR.

The base game is easily a 9/10, but Kaiserreich bumps that up to a 10/10.

Exceptional. I only wish the modders would keep putting out more updates. That being said its the best Grand Strategy game ever made. Endless replay value. Countless "What if" potential to remake history.

I find this game better than Hearts of Iron 3. I always was very found of Hearts of Iron 2, and this game makes it better. If you're a fan of grand strategy games and of games based on the World Wars, then this is a must buy. One of the best time wasters on steam.

It's a good remake of Hearts of Iron 2.
If you think there is not enough content you can just download some mods like Kaiserreich,1914 or Fatherland.
The game isn't the most beautifill,but looks decent.
The interface is not userfriendly but you can get used to it in like 15 minutes.
If you like challenge you can play as a small country like Guatemala or play as a big one like Germany.
It's a great game overall,not perfect just great.
Also Germany took over Greece.
It's a 8.5/10 game

Damn, this game is so good. It was the first Paradox game I ever tried, and although there is a "learning curve", the events and gameplay compesate for any incovience and awkwardness in the begginning. Also, the mods (e.g. Kaiserreich, NW2) add another touch to the game, especially Kaiserreich, with it's alternate WWI theme.

11/10

This game is great.
More content than Hearts of Iron II.
I can play in full HD resolution with Windows 8.1 64 bit, but there are some laggy issue, however.

If you have many "what if" questions about the Great War and the Second World War. Buy this game and you won't regret.

Started in 1933 with the AI on "furious" setting. In a year, France attacked Germany, Germany attacked USA, Soviets attacked Poland, France attacked the Soviets. 10/10 would get blitzkrieged again

For me, this is the best Hearts of Iron experience. I enjoy playing with Darkest Hour Light mod which adds more options to the orginal gameplay, but doesn't change it too much. I would recommend buying this over the original, since this inclued also the orginal game (as you have option to play without mods) and the easy to use launcher lets you select higher resolutions for modern systems (instead of the old 1024x768 fullscreen).

Word of warning to Win8 users though. You need to play around with settings-file and play in windowed mode, because the full screen mode is not working properly (poor fps and sometimes mouse cursor missing).

The tutorial to this game is terrible so the game is hard to get into, though even if it had as good a tutorial as EU4 the game would still be hard to get into. If you want to learn this game the only way is to play the game as some easy nation. You may feel useless at the start, but it is truly a great game when you learn it.

This is a fantatsic game, especially with the Grand Campign mod. You can take weeks to get even started into WW2 and the economy managment seems seocnd to none. It is complex and takes a while to learn but once you have the depth of startegy is great.

Get it cheap and enjoy (I got it for 2 dollars and have seen it that price several times since). It is well balanced and the AI is more fun than regular HoI2 Armaggeddon. I enjoy it as a few of the AI nations develop their own nukes and seem to make smart naval invasions that force me to preemptively defend coastlines.

A wonderfully crafted game. It is much more flexible than HOI3, and it is less overwhelming since there aren't as many provinces. The base game has many opportunities to change history- you could do a German invasion of England (but I actually used paratroopers to get a beachfront ;) ) and set up a puppet state, or you could annex it outright. The World War I scenario is also a neat feature that the other games don't have by default. The mods for this game are wonderful, and someday I'd like to make one myself. I'm not what you'd call a master at this game, but it sure is a lot of fun!

Annexed all of South America and Latin America as Brazil
Germany Annexed all of Europe except Italy
I waged a never ending war with the US of A in Texas and Mexico.
Nukes started flying in 1950
USA Became Communist from the Nukes
Italy launched 8 Failed Naval Invasions of the USA
I lost millions of men in Texas and Mexico
Pretty sure woman and children were also being forced into the war as soldiers.

100/10 Would wage never ending war again.
