Unity of Command II en route vers l’est

La dimension germano-soviétique de 39-45 continue de revenir en force sur nos écrans, avec cette fois une extension du sympathique second volet d’Unity of Command qui propose une campagne de 23 scénarios historiques, allant des lacs de Karélie au nord aux plages de la mer Noire au sud, et permettant un nombre limité de variations hypothétiques, volontairement difficiles à réaliser, comme prendre Moscou fin 1941.

Le jeu propose aussi un tutoriel mis à jour, voyez à ce sujet ce dev diary, en anglais, sur le site officiel.

Voilà qui intéressera ceux ayant apprécié le gameplay de ce second titre, style de jeu très proche du wargame, visuellement très soigné, mais ayant sous certains aspects un coté plus puzzle tactique. Ce qui n’est pas gênant en soi, certains mécanismes sotn très bien pensés, mais c’est un choix de gameplay pouvant ne pas correspondre à certaines attentes.

Unity of Command II Barbarossa DLC Out Today on Steam

Barbarossa, the new DLC for Unity of Command II will be released today on Steam at 19:00 CEST and the price will be 9,99 USD.

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 against the Soviets in Operation Barbarossa!

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..

Key Features of the Barbarossa DLC

23-scenario historical campaign, with battles from the lakes of Karelia in the north to the Black Sea beaches in the south

Limited, but still difficult to achieve, alternative historical outcomes, such as capturing Moscow in late 1941

Detailed, zoomed-in maps for the hard-fought sieges of Odessa and Sevastopol

20+ new unit types including those from Italy, Romania, Hungary, Slovakia, Finland, and Spain.

Beautiful new vehicle models including BT-7 and T-26 tanks, and the iconic ZIS-5 truck.

New Tutorial Features and Campaign

New tutorial scenarios bringing the total to 6 from the previous 4

Brand new tutorial Campaign that will take the player from the Louisiana Maneuvers to Operation Torch and finally to the run for Tunis

And a couple of quick 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”. Its initial aim is to retake territory that was ceded to the Soviet Union in 1940.
