Order of Battle goes East! Red Star has been announced!

Post by AlbertoC » Thu Jul 04, 2019 12:58 pm

Set in a new theater of war, the new expansion for Order of Battle: World War II puts the player in charge of the Soviet army for the first time.

Red Star covers the battles of the Red Army in the years 1938-41.

The campaign starts with the Battle of Lake Khasan (July 29, 1938 – August 11, 1938), the attempted military incursion by the Japanese from Manchukuo, into territory claimed by the Soviet Union. It continues with the conflict of Khalkhin Gol, the decisive battle of the undeclared Soviet-Japanese Border War. Repel the Japanese and expel them from Mongolia!

Then, get transferred to Europe and participate in the Soviet invasion of Poland (as result of the so-called non-aggression pact with Germany). and win the Finnish forces moving your steps in the gelid Winter War!

The last stage of the DLC from summer 1941 deals with the German invasion of the USSR and ends with the battle of Moscow in Dec. 1941.

This expansion is the first of a planned trilogy covering the full extent of WWII from the Soviet point of view. Much like in the Weltkrieg trilogy you will be able to carry over your forces from one campaign to the next, so expect to be able to continue the fight!

Order of Battle: Red Star is due to release this summer on PC, Mac and Steam. We will be releasing more information on the DLC in the coming weeks, so stay tuned!

We are currently looking for beta testers willing to provide us with feedback and criticism on the new campaign. If you would like to take part in it, please sign up here!

Have to admit that I'm surprised by the contents of this DLC
Positively surprised :)
I think there will also be delighted fans of the Japanese army and military operations in the Far East

Yes, I also think this is a very good decision, starting in Manchuria. There's the possibility of several interesting not-so-known scenario topics here.
Looking forward to the beta test.

This battle seems to be taking place in Lithuania (near Raseiniai)?

Finally a Soviet Campaign!

Can't wait to cloud the sky with swarms of IL-2s, smash the Nazi with hordes of T-34, and shoot those comrades who flee at the sight of battle!
