Early this morning, following heavy artillery bombardment, a large German force has penetrated US positions in the Ardennes Forest in Belgium and Luxemburg!! Allied High command is hastily rushing reinforcements to the area, to counter the surprise attack and prevent them from crossing Meuse river.
Can you stop the elite of the German panzer divisions, or vice-versa, lead them to victory? Find out.
The new version is delivered as installer version but wont change anything to your original CoH-Files.
Note: This Mod requires the orignal Company of Heroes (vanilla) and/or ToV and will not run on Opposing Fronts only.
Battle of the Bulge is a Mod focusing exclusively on the battles in Belgium and Luxemburg, December 44 - January 45.
It converts the Summer/Normandy Scenario of CoH into a winter scenario along with winter Maps, Skins and units.
Lots of emphasize has been laid on the look of the Mod. All skins are as accurate as possible, from uniform detail to unit marking.
EACH soldier in a squad has individual uniforms and equipment.
Occlusion effects, team colors, even territory borders and selection markers have been removed for visual authenticity.
Furthermore, the Mod's aim is to combine CoH game play with more realism and it tries to reflect the battle properly.
Therefore Panzerelite and Brits have been taken off the game ( Brits will show up as doctrine reinforcements, though ).
You can call in battlegroups which have originally taken part, like the 14th Cavalry Group or the infamous Kampfgruppe Peiper.
Tons of changes have also been done to unit stats, gameplay and doctrines. The units you can produce depend on the doctrine you choose.
The in-game doctrines have been changed to reflect historical units, read more below:
becomes the defensive tree. You have a lot of powerful infantry like airborne infantry, AT-teams and heavy mortars, but only little choice of heavy artillery or vehicles force you to really use airborn tactics - dig in and wait for the Cavalry.
Doctrines will even strenghten your infantries combat value, until you get full air support in the late game.
( note: during the real battle, both US Airborn Divisions were transferred to the battlefield by trucks -
so you wont be able to paradrop in this mod, either. )
still well rounded, with good defensive and artillery units, combat engineers and fair armor.
Doctrines give you more production bonuses and send armored combat groups to the battlefield.
Like in vCoH, this is the most powerful, but slowest to build Division... but mobile artillery like Priest, and many tanks like the Sherman Easy Eight, Jumbo Sherman and the M36 let you gain the initiative.You will even receive tank reinforcements by the British.
Consist of Volksgrenadier and heavy Fallschirmjager Infantry, light artillery and heavy antitank equipment, Mobile units are mostly antitank...the doctrine gives you enhanced defensive options like trenches as well as some armored support.
The most rounded tree... good Infantry units like Panzergrenadiere, some early ATs, mobile Artillery and fair battle tanks as well as doctrinal refitting options and powerful offmap units like Jagdpanther and Sturmtiger
6th SS Panzerarmy
Focussing on heavy mobile Firepower... mobile artillery units like Hummel and Maultier and the heaviest tank in the game, the Kingtiger, give you full force in your advance.Fanatism boosts your troops fighting spirit and the hidden "Operation Griffon" Teams spread sabotage and confusion behind enemy lines.
One of the the biggest changes is a general elimination of the Point Capture system. Now we use ATC, by AGameAnx which is a script that checks the No. of units in territory, and the faction with most units inside captures the territory after some time. Observation posts have been eliminated, too.

*BotB will neither affect your ability to play regular CoH, CoH:OF or CoH:ToV, nor will it affect your ability to play other CoH mods.
While Europe is suffering under a hot sun, the BotB Mod Team is taking you again
to the cold winter of 1944/45.
Take control over the german force thats startingthe Operation "Wacht am Rhein"
- a surprise attack to capture the port of Antwerp.
Or take command of the U.S.First Army that ,after some confusion,
put up a fierce resistance and stopped the german Panzers.
Real life squad sizes & historical equipment, more maps, especially for "Operation Nordwind". New vehicles, new weapons, enhanced tank combat effects, overhauled stats,skins & models. Better performance.
Choose between "Realism" Modes that make use of Automatic Territory capturing, Troop surrendering and
Ammo and Fuel consumption. Or play in "classic" CoH style.
And the beginning of a SP campaign ( therfore Pt.1 ). More missions to come.
And dont forget to join the >>BotB & Immersion 1944 Discord<< for help, more infos and bug reports.
Thank you for all the patience during these years.
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...
