A spiritual successor to Darkest Hour: A Hearts of Iron Game is here...

A massive expansion of base Hearts of Iron 4, Darkest hour offers a massive amount of features and gameplay changes to further expand upon the experience, with more historical accuracy and alternative history than ever, all within the confines of great enjoyment. Dreams of restoring the Kaiserreich as Germany to its former glory could not feel any more immersive.

Regardless of playing as a Minor or Major nation; the challenge is taken up a notch to form new gameplay dynamic of strategically planning your next moves, as world conquests are no longer easy to achieve, all the while remaining realistic.

We hope that with Darkest Hour, you may have the most enriching and enjoyable experience with our mod, along with a personal thanks for encouraging our development team to strive further in modding.

  • -Rebalanced weather and terrain modifiers for bigger gameplay impact
