The Second World War’s hardest fighting was on the Eastern Front of Europe.
No Step Back is the newest expansion for Hearts of Iron IV, Paradox Interactive’s grand strategy wargame about the world crisis of the 1930s and World War II.
This expansion adds greater detail for many nations in Eastern Europe, unique game systems to reflect Soviet politics, and many improvements to the military aspect of the game.
Communist Soviet rulers must also deal with a government system full of distrust and betrayal but players can lift up party opposition to the powerful leader, or even pursue a reactionary path of restored monarchy.

Shared alternate history paths for Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania, as well as unique paths for each.
Build a general staff, drawing on the talents and expertise of available officers to take advantage of changes in technology and tactics.
Emphasize certain characteristics of your military arms, adding general bonuses to certain units types or even aiding division design.
Scorched Earth tactics, floating harbors and special supply units added to the logistics system.
Design your own armored force using modules prioritizing speed, gun power, armor or even production cost.
Commission the grandest, most prestigious of artillery pieces, uniquely designed to deal with entrenched foes, and fortified positions.
