game release date for PC:
Ardennes Assault is the second major expansion for Company of Heroes 2, a real-time strategy game by Relic Entertainment. Contrary to the previous add-on, West Front Armies, Ardennes Assault focuses on the single player mode. It offers an extensive solo campaign, the eponymous Ardennes Assault, that takes place on the western front between years 1944 and 1945. Ardennes Assault is a standalone expansion that does not require the original game in order to work.
This expansion allows the players to take command of the American military fighting against the German Oberkommando West. Ardennes Assault is divided into 18 missions, which is more than the basic Company of Heroes 2 offered. The subsequent scenarios merge into a consistent story that dynamically changes on the basis of the choices we make in every phase. The players can also take control of three previously unavailable American companies that have unique officers and require a specific play style. In combat, we have limited resources at our disposal so careful planning is key. All the more so that our units gain experience and develop their fighting ability from mission to mission.
Ardennes Assault does not introduce any meaningful changes in the technical side of Company of Heroes 2.
