New Company of Heroes 2 Maps Take the Wehrmacht East

The "Case Blue" Theater of War DLC mini-pack adds new maps, on top of the free ones recently added.

We here at The Escapist liked Company of Heroes 2 a lot, even if Russia didn't. However, that was months ago, more than enough time to win a virtual war. Now, Relic's helping make sure that the battles never have to end with a few free multiplayer maps and a DLC mini-pack.

The "Case Blue" DLC focuses on single-player and co-op maps. Based off of the real-life German campaign on the Eastern Front, it documents the Wehrmacht's attempts to capture the oil-rich Caucasus region. it contains two solo challenges, two AI battles, and one co-op scenario. The Voronezh scenario has you and another player coordinate infantry and vehicles to take over a Russian city. The Tiger Ace solo challenge revolves around strategic use of an early production Tiger Tank, while the Destroy Convoy challenge is just what the label says. Once you have that down, you can take on the Don River and Kharkov AI Battles, where you'll have to take on the Red Tide as the Wehrmacht faces Soviet counterattacks.

If you'd rather face a human opponent, then you're also in luck, as two new multiplayer maps were recently added, completely free of charge.

The pack is $9.99 and can be downloaded from Steam. However, if you bought either the Pre-Order Edition or the Digital Collector's Edition, check your accounts, as you should have it available for download.

You really should read the review of CoH2. Written by one Greg Tito.

The thing with COH its that its done an excellent job at portraying the Germans (not narzis) as men and not warmongers and all that other evil shit that narzis have been labeled with.

Alot of people think WW2 germans Narzis all of them. Thing is they weren't, they were just regular men fighting for their lives. Lots of vets when they meet up in old age have no grudge to each other fighting on opposing fronts. Like this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_8EkmyoG83Q
I am speaking about the eastern front which COH 1 is but I cannot speak for COH2 as i've not played it (only the closed and open beta)

Go to the metacritic user rating section. You are in for a treat. I promise.

Also, relic can go stuff themselves with map pack DLC.

HAVE FUN DIVIDING THE PLAYER BASE OF A GAME THAT DOES NOT HAVE THAT MANY PLAYERS.

All the multiplayer maps are free, likely for just that reason. The DLC is just singleplayer/coop stuff.

Indeed. I don't understand why people complain about purely aesthetic DLC released on day 1. I mean, might as well give the art team something to do during that whole registration process right? It's as if people don't care to differentiate between day 1 dlc and on-disk dlc (a notable difference, as on disk dlc absolutely IS cut content, while day 1 dlc is not most of the time. I think mass effect was the only clear example of cut content for day 1 dlc).
Of course, the map selection still is a bit lacking. I'm glad they actually added some. Hopefully they'll continue to do so.

If only they would add a last stand map to DOW 2. I'd love for more than one map for that kind of mode.

I withdraw my rant, then.
