Paradox has announced the released date for Hearts of Iron IV’s next expansion. Dubbed Man the Guns will be available on February 28.

This newest add-on will add a bevvy of new features:

  • Research new components and refit older vessels to take advantage of new knowledge or outfit your submarines with snorkels or improved stealth.
  • Tailor your Admirals with new traits and skills.
  • Welcome a government in exile to your democracy, boosting their legitimacy in return for more manpower and elite troops fighting to free their homeland.
  • New national focuses for The Netherlands and Mexico.
  • Protect your coasts from invasion or assault with anti-ship mines, or clear a path through enemy mines before you make the big push.
  • Plot new shipping routes and navies by marking areas you want to avoid.
  • Struggle to keep the peace by following internationally agreed upon rules, or creatively defy the world consensus by exceeding your limits.
  • Add power to your beach landing by researching and producing specialized combat vehicles for your marines.
  • Original music composed specifically for the Man the Guns expansion.
