Order of Battle: World War II recently added its Winter War (WW) DLC alongside Morning Sun and U.S. Marines. The latest expansion inaugurates the series’ foray into the greater realm of WWII, the foregoing installments having all been set in the Pacific theatre.

Beginning with the defence of the Mannerheim Line, the DLC’s 13 scenarios also cover the so-called Continuation War, when the Finns allied with Nazi Germany in order to recoup territory lost in the Winter War.

order-of-battle-winter-warWinter War, the latest DLC for the highly praised Order of Battle: World War II, is now OUT for PC and Mac!

Never before have the Winter War and the Continuation War been recreated in such detail. Developer studio The Artistocrats brings these under represented conflicts to your screens.

With a radically different terrain and tactics, gameplay has been greatly altered. Employ ski troops to outmaneuver the enemy on snowy fields! Cross frozen lakes to catch the enemy unaware! Launch ambushes in deep forests! Use mud and frost to slow down the enemy advance then lure them into huge pockets, cutting them off from supply routes, then eliminate them and capture their vehicles!

Take command of the Finnish army and resist the red tide as the Soviet Union assaults you in the Winter War, then take the initiative and launch an offensive to regain lost ground in the Continuation War.

A new campaign with 13 new scenarios, 90 new units, a whole new environment: Winter War revolutionizes the Order of Battle formula. Will you be up to the task?
