Hearts of Iron IV Patch 1.10, Battle for the Bosporus DLC

On October 15th, the next update to Hearts of Iron 4 will come out. The DLC will emphasize changes to countries around the Black Sea while the update will focus on quality of life for new players.

Patch 1.10, otherwise known as “Collie,” brings an enhanced tutorial and a slew of bug fixes. In addition to this, all players will have access to the Heavy Cruiser 3d Asset Pack, formerly locked to the Colonel Edition of the game.

The Hearts of Iron series is challenging to get into, and the Collie patch seeks to amend this. New players will be able to access tutorial videos in-game for a variety of features. Tutorials can be accessed from alerts at the top of the screen.

The new Balkan Faction versus The Axis in Hearts of Iron IV

As Turkey, chart a new course for the nation by reforming the Ottoman Empire, becoming the protector of the Balkans, or following its historical path.

Bulgaria is in a position to influence the entire war. Will you reclaim your lands lost in 1919 and carve out a new empire, or will you stand with Germany once again?

Greece is at a crossroads with many options before it. Players can choose to take the path to fascism and stand with the Axis, reestablish Alexander’s Empire, or stand with the Allies.
