Expansions awaaaaaay.

’s Western Front expansion for Company of Heroes 2 will be parachuting into release on 24 June. The add-on brings a pair of new armies to the game; US Forces and the German Oberkommando West. Even if you don’t own Company of Heroes 2 you will be able to purchase each army as a stand-alone (at $13.00 USD) and get involved in multiplayer.

All 31 official multiplayer maps will be available to play in auto-match multiplayer for all players, regardless of combination of Company of Heroes 2 DLC they own. So, as I understand it, you could just pay for (say) the US and then hop into auto-match multiplayer.

In addition, each new Western Front army has “distinctive tactical gameplay options, new infantry, team weapons, vehicles, abilities and upgrades on a total of eight seasonal multiplayer maps set on the Western Front.”

If you pre-order the expansion, Relic will toss a couple of unique vehicle skins (one for each new faction) your way too. Exciting stuff.

Here’s an unusually voiceover-free trailer for the add-on, featuring the two factions attempting to blow one another up.
