La Résistance, prochain add-on pour Hearts of Iron IV

Paradox dévoile ce week-end avec cette très belle bande-annonce un futur DLC au thème qui devrait retenir l’attention, à savoir celui de la Résistance face à l’occupant allemand en 39-45. Et donc par extension sur le thème de l’espionnage, des opérations de sabotage, des mouvements de résistance mais aussi de collaboration, et dans une certaine mesure des moyens de détection et de répression de ces actions menées par des agents secrets. La modélisation de l’arbre des priorités nationales sera ainsi revue pour mieux refléter ce que furent la France libre et le Régime de Vichy. Et la campagne sur la guerre civile espagnole profitera elle aussi d’améliorations notables. Probablement de belles perspectives ludiques pour qui est intéressé par ces sujets passionnants, mais aussi difficiles à retranscrire dans une simulation.

Secrets and Sabotage Take Center Stage in La Résistance
Paradox Announces Espionage and Insurrection Expansion to Hearts of Iron IV

BERLIN – 19 October 2019 – The quickest way to kill an enemy is to do it from within. Learn its secrets. Sabotage its industry. Break its codes. Strike at vulnerable points behind the front lines. Send agents to build a network of informants and a secret army that will rise against the occupiers. Resistance is never futile.

Paradox Development Studios is happy to announce Hearts of Iron IV: La Résistance, an expansion to the best-selling grand strategy wargame. La Résistance introduces a new espionage system to the game, and also increases the range of interactions and options with resistance movements in occupied territory.

Features of Hearts of Iron IV: La Résistance includes:

– New Focus Trees for France: New National Focuses for Free France and the Vichy Regime, as well as an option for conservatives to restore the old French Monarchy.
– More in Depth Spanish Campaign: New National Focuses for Republican and Nationalist Spain, as well as an expanded Spanish Civil War that can spiral into a wider conflict..
– Espionage: Use you Intelligence Agency to train spies to specialize in certain types of information warfare and develop passive resistance to enemy espionage, then send them on special operations.
– Support Resistance: Use your agents to assist allied resistance movements, giving them what they need to damage the enemy.
– Collaboration Governments: Use your agents to prepare the ground for collaborators to fill the void once you’ve conquered your target.
– Code Cracking: Decrypt enemy communications to gain short term battlefield advantages.
Recon units: Scout planes can provide useful information on nearby areas while armored cars help in detecting and suppressing resistance activities.

As usual, La Résistance will be accompanied by a significant free update to Hearts of Iron IV, available to all players. This update will include a reworking of the resistance system, interface improvements to battleplans and air operations, and many other quality of life improvements.
