Equestria at War
- Dan Lind (Podcat), HoI4 Game Director on EaW
"I promised my friend I would play this mod and it's actually a very well done mod, I was extremely surprised."
- Daniel Sjöberg (Da9L), HoI4 QA Lead on EaW
Released in July 2017, Equestria at War has grown to be one of the most comprehensive mods for HOI4. With a custom made map, 60+ countries with 30+ unique focus trees, racial tech trees and units, a huge variety of complex interweaving events, and more custom icons and portraits than the entire base game, it shouldn't exist, but it somehow does.
Already Equestria has suffered invasions, coup attempts, a rogue demigod, and even near annihilation at the hands of stolen time travel magic. A long awaited commission has released a scathing report condemning the Canterlot administration for its gross unpreparedness for military, magical and internal threats.
Everywhere Equestria finds new challenges. To the west, Queen Chrysalis has abandoned her attempts at infiltration and instead mobilised the Changeling Hives for industry and war, planning her revenge on Equestria. To the north, the Crystal Empire, returned after centuries in limbo, considers its future in this strange world even as the threat of Sombra's return remains ever present. Communists spread radical ideas in Stalliongrad to the east, and the griffons of the north are thrown into chaos by the assassination of their governor.
Across the sea, things are even worse. The Griffonian Empire, after centuries of stability, has collapsed, and millions lie dead as lords, kings and revolutionaries rush to fight over the spoils. The vulnerable ponies of the colony of New Mareland find Equestria more distant than ever. In the cursed north, the Necromancers of the Dread League stir to battle the Holy Knights of the Arcturian Order. And in the far east the ponies of the disparate nations of the River Coalition face this dangerous world with no alicorns, no harmony, no advanced technology, wielding only the grim determination of those who fight to protect their home and lives.In this modern world of danger and impending war, the Magic of Friendship can seem very distant indeed...
