Order of Battle: Panzerkrieg is here!

Post by AlbertoC » Thu Nov 30, 2017 3:59 pm

The hotly anticipated new expansion to the Order of Battle series is finally here!

Panzerkrieg is the expansion the Artistocrats wanted to make since they started focusing on the European theatre. In Panzerkrieg you will lead the Wehrmacht in the crucial years of ’42 and ’43 on the Eastern Front and relive the epic battles which shaped history like Stalingrad, Kursk and Kharkov. With 12 new scenarios, over 40 new units, new specializations and several gameplay improvements (including new terrain rules) Panzerkrieg is a must-have.

Most importantly, Panzerkrieg can be tied to Blitzkrieg as part of a new mega-campaign. Carry over your core army from one campaign to the next and fight across the whole Eastern Front! The carry-over system itself has been greatly enhanced and Panzerkrieg is tailored to make full use of these improvements.

Shards, producer for the series, will be playing the game live on our Twitch channel at 4 pm GMT! Don’t miss it!

Furthermore… we have a new trailer for the base game, Order of Battle: World War II.




Order of Battle: World War II is completely free to try. Download it and play through the boot camp as well as the first mission from every campaign for free! Get Order of Battle: World War II here.

Great video. There also seem to be some hints towards future theatre releases in there as well ;)

The video is wonderful.
Can you make a full feature 2 hour movie of WW2 like in that trailer?
I will get panzerkrieg. It sounds like the real meat of WW2.

Here are the official multiplayer scenarios available, all campaigns except Panzerkrieg.
Usually there are 2-3 multiplayer scenarios included in each campaign.

You HAVE TO load a save from Blitzkrieg's Moscow mission. Again !
I'm lucky, I got the last backup, turn 30.
So load and play and finish the game (again :)), and the mission.
than:
"Outcome event victory" - exit
"Campaign event victory" - Continue
Than select Army Cores - than Export Core - than Give name and save. ok. Blitzkrieg finish.

Than you start Panzerkrieg
"Import Core ?" he ask, because you ALREADY(!) have saved core.
Select the name and play,

Place light AT units behind your infantry's backs on primary VPs. Purchase a lot of inf and light artillery (cheap units) instead of expensive tanks or heavy arty.

Hello,
I just finished the Kharkov scenario of Panzerkrieg (admittedly at the lowest difficulty). It ended in defeat... BUT, I had all the objectives, I held Krasnograd, Kharkov, 6 of the 5 needed secondary objectives, ended before turn 28 and missed the other (I killed only 1 of the 2 SU 122)? I don't understand what I missed and why I was defeated. Can someone help me or explain this ?

Thank you,

Philippe
