Following on from Order of Battle: US Marines which arrived on the Steam store just over three weeks ago, Slitherine Group (publisher of Order of Battle) have announced that Order of Battle: Winter War will be making its way onto PC and Mac soon.
Order of Battle: Winter War follows the Finnish Army as they battle against the Red Army. This expansion features a new campaign including fourteen scenarios. Players will take command of the Finnish Army, an army that has never been seen before in this series. As a result, this brings new units as well as a brand new terrain and climate: winter. Winter will affect the battlefield by covering the land in snow, slowing soldiers and freezing lakes, allowing the now frozen lakes to be crossed by ground units. As expected, you cannot entrench the frozen lakes, so be careful when you plan your attack.
Slitherine are looking for Order of Battle players to help beta test this new expansion. If you love the series and can’t wait to get your hands on it, why not sign up for the beta? You aren’t guaranteed to play in the beta phase, but you might as well try., hopefully you will be one of the lucky winners.
