What was meant to be a small fix with a few additions finally turned into a major update. And Battle of the Bulge Mod opened up a new front in Alsace-Lorraine. You can now play 6 Scenarios of "Unternehmen Nordwind", the last, desperate german offensive in eastern France.

Posted by Halftrack on Jun 12th, 2013

The wait is over, the desperate fight in winter continues:

Battle of the Bulge is back!

Version 3.5 "Unternehmen Nordwind" has been released!

Take the role of either a 7th US Army Commander or of german Heeresgruppe G.
Fight in the dense mountains of the Vosges and Alsace-Lorraine.

In those 6 scenarios you have different doctrine choices and access to
different units which have taken part in the historical battle.

But, as always, the core mod also was worked at.
New abilities and upgrades, bug- and AI fixes will make your battles even tougher.
New skins and models will make it look more authentic.

- all Units come from offmap
- Troop surrendering now working flawlessly, even in Multiplayer
- gamemode "quickstart" overhauled, throwing you directly into combat
- units in houses become invisible much longer
- soldiers dont leave cover by themselves ( no order necessary anymore )
- 5 new maps, 1 old map re-activated
- many bugs fixed

supported language versions:
chinese, czech, english, french, german ,italian, polish, russian (partly), spanish

This is only a small insight of the new features that BotB 3.5 has to offer.
Better take a look at it yourself.

Or have a detailed look at the changelog, available in the download section.

And of course, there are bugs. Unfortunately. But you can help us getting
rid of them by reporting what you find. Best in our forum here or on our website: or
