Sometimes you just seem to wake up one morning and decide you need a little more conflict in your life. Not the real kind, but the virtual kind you can control yet still see spiral far from your reaches. Slitherine and The Artistocrats offer that with Order of Battle: Kriegsmarine - an expansion to their F2P hit.
Originally release as Order of Battle: Pacific back in 2015, the two companies decided the only way to entice more folks to delve into the 'Grand Strategy' genre was to not gate them behind a traditional paywall. Order of Battle became free-to-play.
With the original campaign becoming free to access, the title's once built-in offerings became DLC affairs. Achieving massive success in the idea, Order of Battle has continued to receive consistent campaign and feature upgrades through additional DLC packs with the latest - Kriegsmarine - arriving right now.
While the expansion sets players back $10 it offers brand-new scenarios involving naval skirmishes in the Baltic, North Sea and Atlantic Ocean alongside 50 new units including one that's able to carry and resupply seaplanes. Those unwilling to part with their cash, however, will still benefit from the 'massive' changes to naval combat.
If you're yet to try the genre or Order of Battle itself, it's likely best to start with the free mode first. Should it cater to your liking, you can start selecting your desired additional campaigns from the Slitherine storefront.
