Unity of Command II to expand with Blitzkrieg DLC in November

From Press Release:

Axis Campaign 1939-41

From 1939 to 1941, Germany stunned the world with the introduction of Blitzkrieg, a new mode of war focused on massed armored spearheads and close air support. Rapid shock and encirclement by mechanised armies replaced the grinding attrition of World War I trench warfare.

In this DLC, you command Wehrmacht forces during this period, starting with the 1939 invasion of Poland, through the daring airborne assault on Crete in May 1941.

Key Features

  • 13-scenario historical campaign, based on early-war battles in Poland, Norway, Western Europe and the Balkans
  • Alternative history tracks, including one of history’s greatest “what-ifs”: Operation Sealion, the German plan for invasion of Britain
  • 50+ new unit types, from almost every European nation including Poland, France, Norway, Sweden, Greece and more
  • Beautiful new vehicle models including Pz IIIF, Cruiser mk.III A13, Citroën U23, Char B1 bis, SOMUA S35, L3/35 and more
  • A new forts mechanic designed to simulate the challenges of attacking the formidable Maginot Line
  • New air support theater assets to simulate the devastating effectiveness of the Luftwaffe: Precision Bombing and Flying Artillery
  • New capabilities for German HQs: advanced force pool, kampfgruppe, oversupply and more
  • Many new specialists, including an entirely new type: assault guns
