Order of Battle: Kriegsmarine is out!

Order of Battle: Kriegsmarine is out!

In Order of Battle: Kriegsmarine you'll brave heavy enemy fire while at the lead of powerful battleships and cruisers - true beasts of steel! You will command silent predators, marvels of German engineering, the U-Boots, in their lethal hunt for Allied convoys. You will build and employ massive new Carriers, platforms from where to launch your newest aircraft, and gain a devastating edge over your enemies.

Kriegsmarine is all of this, and more. Your efforts will decide the fate of the war. Are you up to the task?

The new DLC for the Order of Battle series releases today on our store and on Steam. It features the exploits of the Kriegsmarine, the German Navy, in its effort to fight Allied supremacy at sea. It adds many new units, and it presents players with the intriguing possibility of exploring “what-if” scenarios: what if Germany had developed, built and deployed aircraft carriers? What if Germany had fully executed Plan Z and built the next-generation battleships? You have the choice.

That’s not all! Kriegsmarine is accompanied by several new features which have an effect on naval gameplay in general: new mechanics such as fire efficiency and hit avoidance, new submarine rules, primary and secondary guns for ships, new unit types, a first look at the Skirmish mode, and more! It is truly a massive update.

And if you’re still unconvinced, we’ll stream the game tomorrow on our Twitch channel!

So what are you waiting for? Get Kriegsmarine now, and give us your feedback on the forum!

I can't install it without the update. However, to do that I need a ftp id and password. It won't accept my Slitherine/ Matrix password. Now what?

The only password I needed was to get to the members area (usual log in one) then download the update.

Dear all,

I found out that the amount of Requisition Points is fixed at the beginning of each scenario (at least scenario 2 and 3).
So if I finish first scenario with 315 or 0 Requisition Points I start next one with 250.
This implies that i need to buy equipment in turn 30 of the scenario in order not to loose this resources.
This is very artificial and different from previous DLC's.
Is it intended in Kriegsmarine or this is just a bug ?

Many thanks for the answer.

That's a bug. If you (re)start the game a popup should come up now asking for an automatic update. That should fix this bug (among others).

In the Torch scenario there is a victory tally flaw. Even though I have reached 12/15 Battleship as well as 12 other ships destroyed I only receive a DEFEATED result. There are only 2 Battleships to destroy at 6 points each for a total of 12. So this needs to be corrected to 12/12.

Thanks

I've come across that same thing in the Torch scenario. Searched everywhere but can only find two battleships, so it comes up as a defeat!
Also, if I try to replay the scenario again? It just stops and there is no way to play that scenario again. It just does nothing until I have to use the task manager to stop the game. No problem with any of the other DLC's in this game.

Enjoying Kriegsmarine so far. I wonder how it ends? I mean, if I win the campaign, do I turn the tide of World War II (no pun intended)? :?

Four times now I've reached the "Torch" scenario and sunk all the Allied ships with only one damaged Destroyer escaping and even sunk one troop transport. all the Supply ships and shelled the U.S. troops ashore and still it says "Defeat"! The Victory tally must be changed to 12/12 instead of 12/15. Very frustrating to fight those scenarios to get to that one and get a "Defeat" when I have completely destroyed the opponents fleet. Hope this gets fixed soon as I won't plat the game again till it is.

I sure hope this update takes care of the problem on the "Torch" scenario. Was beginning to wonder!
