@adin: I really don't want to put another date out. But we're really close
, otherwise I wouldn't mention it in the first place. So... soon
@nikdav: OK, let's leak something about the scenarios right now...
Stalingrad Campaign ends in March of 1943, with Manstein's counterattack (3rd Kharkov
) reaching up to about Belgorod. That's when the Kursk bulge got its final shape. This new expansion kicks off in July 1943, with Zitadelle
which is a German scenario (there are only two of those, and no German campaign). We don't have any what-if scenarios for a hypothetical German victory in Zitadelle, but I'm sure with the scenario editor, the community will offer their ideas about that.
Soviet campaign starts with Rumyantsev
and covers the Soviet 1943/44 campaign to liberate the Ukraine in 8 scenarios. After Rumyantsev it goes to Lower Dnieper
, etc. Two large scenarios in the middle of Ukraine fighting will let you create the Korsun Pocket
, Hube's Pocket
and the 6th Army (again!) pocket around Nikolaev. That arm of the campaign then branches to Romania (2nd Iassy-Kishinev
) and Hungary (Debrecen
Next summer, it all starts again on June 22nd
, 1944 with Bagration
, then Lvov-Sandomierz
... and then all the way to Berlin
. Anyway, I'm not going to spill everything
right now, but hopefully I shed some light on things for those of you eager to get your hands on the expansion.
