The new DLC depicts battles from the Allied Normandy landings in summer 1944 to the end of the war in Europe. The campaign began on D-Day, 6 June 1944, with Operation Overlord, the large-scale amphibious assault to land Allied forces in northern France. Afterwards, the player has to secure the rest of Normandy, and needs to defeat substantial German forces in the Falaise pocket. Following a successful breakout from Normandy, the liberation of Paris is in reach.
Like all previous DLCs, Allies Victorious also adds a number of new units for both Allied and Axis countries, and a few new Allied commanders. The new units are:
- US: 8inch_howitzer M-115
- UK: Achilles, Archer, Ram Kangaroo
- Germany: FlakPzIV, Me-163 Komet, V-1 "Flying Bomb"
