Steam Workshop

This is the easiest and most convenient way to download Kaiserreich, as it will automatically update the mod whenever there is a new version available. To download Kaiserreich from Steam Workshop, you need to have Hearts of Iron IV installed on Steam and follow these steps:

  • Open Steam and go to your Library.

  • Right-click on Hearts of Iron IV and select Manage > Browse Workshop.

  • In the search bar, type "Kaiserreich" and press Enter.

  • You should see a mod called "Kaiserreich" by Kaiserdevs. Click on it to open its page.

  • On the right side of the page, click on the green button that says "+ Subscribe". This will add the mod to your subscribed items.

  • Wait for the mod to download. You can check the progress by clicking on Downloads at the bottom of Steam.

  • Once the mod is downloaded, you can launch Hearts of Iron IV and enable it in the launcher.

Direct Download

This method requires you to manually download and install the mod files from a website. To download Kaiserreich from a direct download, you need to have Hearts of Iron IV installed on your computer and follow these steps:

  • Go to this website:

  • Scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on the blue button that says "Download". This will start downloading a ZIP file containing the mod files.

  • Once the file is downloaded, extract it using a program like WinRAR or 7-Zip. You should see two folders: "Kaiserreich" and "Kaiserreich.mod".

  • Copy these two folders and paste them into your Hearts of Iron IV mod folder. The default location for this folder is Documents\Paradox Interactive\Hearts of Iron IV\mod.

Installing Kaiserreich Music

To install Kaiserreich Music, you can use either Steam Workshop or direct download, following the same steps as above. The only difference is that you need to look for or download a mod called "Kaiserreich Music" by Kaiserdevs instead of "Kaiserreich". You also need to enable both mods in the launcher for them to work together.
