A free community-based expansion is headed to grand strategy fans everywhere!

Slitherine (www.slitherine.com) and Matrix Games are thrilled to announce the MILITARY HISTORY™ Commander – Europe at War Grand Strategy 2.0 expansion. This expansion was created by the community for the community and is completely free to anyone who has MILITARY HISTORY™ Commander - Europe at War! This expansion will be available for PC and Mac next Tuesday, May 31st.

To mark this announcement, we have released a pack of screenshots and an in-depth feature brochure showing off the substantial improvements to the graphics and gameplay.

This expansion has taken years to produce and thousands of man hours from a dedicated collection of people from artists to programmers, manual writers and layout experts. The end result takes this great game to a whole new level. Some of the biggest changes are listed here:
  • Airborne divisions and para-drops
  • Cross platform multiplayer support for PC vs. Mac
  • German SS and Soviet Guards Elite Units
  • Amphibious landings against defended coastal hexes
  • Geo-political elements, which include:
    • French armistice (which the axis may accept or reject)
    • Early Italian entry if insufficient allied naval presence in the Med
    • Tension in the Balkans
    • Spanish activation as axis or allied minor ally
    • Turkey activation as axis or allied minor ally
    • Finnish armistice
    • Romanian and Bulgaria surrender and activation as allied minor ally
    • Consequences for allied aggression (e.g., UK invasion of Ireland).
  • Canadian, Australian, Polish and Indian Commonwealth units and leaders
  • Headquarter units
  • More and greater variability of leadership ranging from Army Groups (Fronts), Armies and Corps
  • Ferry crossings
  • Ability to swap positions of two units of the same service type (i.e., ground, air or naval).
  • Reinforcement of sub groups at sea
  • Leased air bases (Azores, Iceland, Greenland)
  • Malta naval and air bases factor into the interdiction and counter-interdiction of axis supply of North Africa
  • Allied Interdiction of Swedish Iron Ore to German
  • Scripted construction of Atlantic Wall Fortresses
  • Many more improvements - too many to list to here!
Get more information on the MILITARY HISTORY™ Commander – Europe at War from its official product page and be sure to check out the new screenshots and brochure!

Has the AI been improved? Sounds like a good expansion. Have to try it out. Do I hhave to buy it or is it compatible with the original / gold version of the game? I got some gold version for free I think.
