Battle of the Bulge is a fast-paced WW2 game where  precise movement and detailed planning make the difference between a vain attempt and a brave operation.

Set during what the historian Antony Beevor called "Hitler's Last Gamble", Battle of the Bulge provides an immersive experience on a tactical/operational level, putting the player in command of the Allies or the German forces fighting each other in several scenarios in one of the most brutal and wild environments of Western Europe: the snow-covered forest of the Ardennes!

Command infantry, mechanized and armoured units in hard fights through the various phases of the offensive, taking into account the nature of the terrain and its effects on the assailants and defenders.

You don't only have to face a direct military confrontation, you have to learn how to manage your supply routes, being careful not to rely on easy solutions! A quick breakthrough into enemy lines could lead your units being isolated with a high risk of being outflanked by enemy counterattacks!

Time will be another factor not to underestimate. In Battle of the Bulge, scenarios have a time limit with several "semi-historical" events affecting your conduct of operations in different ways.

Take control of iconic elite units on both sides, such as the 101 Airborne Division or the Kampf Gruppe Peiper, and replace the losses on the hottest spots of the frontline!

Challenge Bradley, Dietrich, von Rundstedt and other historical commanders with an ad hoc re-written AI -each with different play styles to choose!

Alternatively try to outsmart your friends - whatever their favourite gaming platform - in simple multiplayer encounters or test your skills with the new Tournament feature, providing infinite replay value to the game!

A note about AI

This new version of Battle of the Bulge features a reshaped AI, granting a higher level of challenge to the players. Now the computer controlled faction is quicker to consider a list of parameters (like offensiveness, defensiveness, cohesion, etc...) than before and every potential decision is scored and evaluated to be the most challenging whilst still within the personality of the selected commander.

The new AI recognizes the different importance of the several regions and makes its moves on the basis of logistics (what happens to the supply if the tile is taken by the enemy), the chances of winning a combat, the player’s/AI’s strength in the tile and in nearby tiles, the day of the campaign and other important factors.
