Normandy '44: European Theater combines a higher level of realism with a more elaborate doctrine system, which incorporates almost 50 different military units that took part in the period of Jun-Sept 1944. This spectrum ranges from divisions of free Polish and French units serving under the main allied armies to volunteers from the Eastern Front that served in the German Wehrmacht. This is only a small portion of the doctrine variety however, as we feature numerous well known units of all factions as well. The mod also features numerous new abilities and custom made units each with a completely revamped size and structure. Between custom made units and structures with historically correct skins, Normandy '44 offers over 150 NEW UNITS, making for an almost endless variety of different scenarios and unit actions. Combined these factors provide for an experience unlike any other mod for CoH!

Post news Report RSS N44 v2.0 in production - Soviet Union will be added

We are currently working on N44 v2.0 (and have been for the last year since v1.7). It will expand all the current factions, and add the Soviets as a new faction.

Posted by on

It dawned on me that we have yet to truly update our ModDB to reflect our current progress...

Thanks in large part to permissions received from the Eastern Front Mod, we have been working on N44 v2.0 which WILL include the Soviets.

It will have all the current factions that are in v1.7, but they will all be expanded into a new faction/doctrine/sub-doctrine/sub-subdoctrine system. As an example, if you choose the US "Infantry" doctrine (which is called the "Omaha and Utah Beach Doctrine" in v2.0), you will then choose either the 1st or 4th infantry division as a "sub-doctrine". You will be able to then build units from either of those two divisions. From there, you can also choose a "sub-subdoctrine", which will be either more specialized units from that division, or other units attached to that division (as an example one of the sub-subdoctrines of the 1st ID is the 2nd Ranger Batt/29th Infantry division). Each doctrine, sub, and sub-sub is unique with their own strengths and weaknesses.

And, as stated, the Soviet Union will be added, and will be designed in the same manner as an ENTIRELY NEW 5th faction.

All in all it will be a much deeper experience and over 50 new models added plus ALL the models and skins from the Eastern Front Mod (thanks again to them :) ).

Coding should be ready for alpha testing relatively soon (you know we won't give dates ;) ) and as we put in the finished new models we will be able to start a Beta (it won't be soon but I hope to update often).

And, as stated in previous news, a HUGE thank you to Men of War (and all it's developers),
especially 1C, the members of the German Soldiers Mod, and the members
of the Dynamic Campaign Generator Mod, for allowing us to use some of
their models and textures!!! They were VERY kind to allow us
the use of their models!!! And this will certainly speed up the process of getting in new models.

Stay tuned :)

An entire faction - just as big as the other 4 factions (and they are bigger in v2.0)

Mod's name won't be affected since "Normandy 1944" is like a brand name for the mod and 2nd part "European Theater" also includes Eastern Front.
The final discussion was already debated in official forums ;)

So true, ever since the EF mod was released I had hoped they will go for a realism approach like BK, BotB or N44, but they used the vCoH damage system :/

But now that N44 will add the Soviets, I am super happy :D

Its a huge tease, when you have the Soviet Union option in the skirmish setting, but you can't select it.
