Unity of Command II Barbarossa DLC Announced

Unity of Command II keeps on giving for the strategy aficionados.
After tackling fortress Europe as the Allies in the base game and happily trampling the western powers as the Axis in the first Blitzkrieg DLC, it is now time to go against all odds in Operation Barbarossa!

The DLC will be out on the 21st of April on Steam and the price will be 9,99 USD. The Steam page is already up with screenshots and more details about the content of this DLC.

Challenge History itself

On 22 June 1941, a Sunday, Nazi Germany set in motion the largest invasion in the history of warfare — the attack on the Soviet Union, codenamed “Barbarossa”. By the time the four-year conflict on the Eastern Front is over, the world will have witnessed a war that’s unfathomable in scale and unparalleled in brutality.
In this DLC, you command Axis forces during Operation Barbarossa, from their summer of roaring victories to the painful halt at the gates of Moscow in the winter of 1941/42..

And a quick couple of examples of Barbarossa missions…

Leningrad approaches

July-August 1941,
After its initial successes, German Army Group North faces increased Russian resistance coupled with counterattacks. To make matters worse it must dissipate its forces to take a myriad of objectives along an ever-increasing front line…
And do you really expect supply to be following your advance efficiently?

Operation “Munchen”

July 1941,
To the far South Romanian Army Group Antonescu, supported by German forces, has joined the fray. This takes shape in the form of “Operation München”. It’s initial aim is to retake territory that was ceded to the Soviet Union in 1940.
