Order of Battle: Allies Defiant is out now

Post by ledrobi » Thu Jan 28, 2021 5:36 pm

Order of Battle: Allies Defiant, the first chapter in a new trilogy of DLCs that depicts World War 2 from the Allied perspective, is out now.

Allies Defiant covers the battles starting from the spring of 1940 to late 1942. It features a fully-fledged campaign with 12 new scenarios and some of the most iconic British units of WW2.

We're celebrating the beginning of this new trilogy with a week-long 60% discount on all the previous expansions, valid until Feb 4th, 12:00 GMT. Check them out here.



ALLIES DEFIANT CAMPAIGN

In the first battle, the player takes command of British units deployed to Norway. When the war intensifies on the Western Front in May 1940, they are forced to change their focus and the next two scenarios feature defensive battles in Belgium and France.

Afterwards the campaign moves to North Africa, where British forces battle Axis troops in Egypt and Libya. In spring 1941, the player gets to fight the crucial naval battle at Cape Matapan in the Mediterranean Sea. They are then reassigned to participate in the defence of Greece after.

The last stage of Allies Defiant focuses again on the desert war, which changed dramatically with the arrival of Rommel's Afrikakorps. Since the Desert Fox managed to drive the Allies back into Egypt in 1942, the player has to deplete enemy offensive strength before they can finally resume offensive operations. This will allow them to deal Axis forces a decisive defeat at El Alamein.

We have timing problem. You need version 9.0 of OOB to install allies Defiant. But the link to download version 9.00 don't work at this moment. I'm sure it will be fix soon.

After one day the download link is working. Sadly i done all scenarios in few days....Too addictive!

Out and incompetent. The same glitches and programming errors as ever in this DLC. So you didn't invest in a Mac version and the Windows one comes with the same mistakes as always. Bought it, moved to Windows against my rightful customer's desire and I'm disappointed, again. The thing keeps freezing, blocking, in sum, does not work properly. Ugh! At least some polishing in the program should have been done, after so long time without a DLC. What makes this game survive is the community, indeed.

Masca, in all fairness I need to ask you: The old PC that you said you were resurrecting in order to play AD on OOB version 9.0.0, just how old is it? Has it been recently maintained and had drivers updated?

Purchased this (via Steam) for OOB without noticing that it was Windows only DLC for the Mac base game :oops: :cry:

Can't play it now - hugely disappointed.

Are there any plans to make this Mac compatible?

It seems to me that you can get a refund for a recent purchase on Steam under certain conditions.

There used to be a Mac version available, but I believe they discontinued it.
