Hearts of Iron IV: Together for Victory for PC is a large expansion for Hearts of Iron IV. The add-on is not standalone, which means that it requires the base game to run on your machine. Both titles were developed by Paradox Interactive.
Together for Victory focuses on a group of countries that were part of the British Commonwealth during World War II. As a result, the expansion introduces new national development trees for Australia, Canada, New Zealand, South Africa, and India, complemented by historic characters and companies. The whole add-on was created in such a way as to allow the game to unfold in a historic way, or to create an abnormal, alternative scenario.
A new system of autonomy had been introduced – the player can set various levels of dependency of the subordinate countries, from puppet governments, up to full, self-contained rule. We can now evolve some of the national ideas, which result in trickling bonuses, and new upgrades unlocked throughout the course of the war.
Together for Victory allow weakened governments to ask their allies for the lease of various equipment. Additionally, the Commonwealth nations can receive technologies to quickly reach the level of their dominion – Great Britain. Finally, the developers introduced small changes to battle system, and added the ability to show detailed statistics in the aftermath of each battle.
