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

"The new version is delivered as installer version but wont change anything to your original CoH-Files." - So does this mean this mod has a separate launcher, and you can still play both the mod and the vanilla version if you want (like the Blitzkrieg mod for example)?

Looks awesome btw!

A question: Why are the Halftrack and Sdkfz 234 stummels so useless? I mean, there's virtually no blast radius for their shells and their accuracy against infantry is downright shameful. Speaking of inaccurate weapons, the Hummel and Wespe also cannot seem to hit anything with their barrages unlike the towed howitzers.

Is there any way to fix the pink sandbag bug? So far I've found it in Lemberg, Houffalaize Road and Losheimergraben.

This Battle of the Bulge Mod is really excellent. I'm totally obsessed with its massive amount of new contents as well as their creators' prudent attitude toward history. When I saw the Peiper combatgroup and Griffen Operation skill, I can't help myself to praise these people finally made a fabulous war game mod based on tremendous details of reality. Great job, guys! Great job. I do love this mod!
