The Western Front Armies is an expansion for the 2013’s Company of Heroes 2 for PC, a strategy game set during the World War II. However, it differs from the previous minor DLC since it is a completely standalone add-on which does not require having the original game installed. The expansion is pretty big in size and scope and is meant solely for multiplayer gameplay.

As the title suggests, the DLC is focused on the European Western Front of the World War II. It is a big change in relation to the vanilla game which was completely concentrated on the Eastern Front. The “westernization” of the production is manifested mainly by the introduction of two additional sides of the conflict: the United States Armed Forces and the German Oberkommando, which fought in Western Europe. What is interesting, The Western Front Armies is not a unified whole since both of the aforementioned armies were sold separately in the past. Each new faction received previously unavailable abilities, enhancements, strategic and tactical capabilities as well as, most importantly, completely new units (for example: airborne infantry, the Sherman tank, the Sturmtiger and Jagdtiger cannons, or the P-47 Thunderbolt airplane.

Moreover, the expansion includes eight new multiplayer maps that recreate the locations of the Western Front. What is interesting, while generating matches, we may, for example, pit the American and Russian armies against each other. The add-on also offers a new progression system that enriches the fun. It is also worthy of note that although The Western Front Armies is dedicated to multiplayer gameplay, the DLC’s owners can also play against the artificial intelligence.
