Continuing its longstanding tradition of supporting fans through high-quality expansions for its key franchise titles, Ascaron Entertainment and CDV Software Entertainment present Blitzkrieg 2: Fall of the Reich for the PC, the first stand-alone expansion for the recently released Blitzkrieg 2 historical RTS.

Fall of the Reich covers 3 major offensives taking place in the final days on the Eastern Front. With Germany holding strategic cities in a bid to protect the Fatherland, and the Red Army relentlessly driving towards Berlin, the Spring of '45 saw some of the most vicious battles of the entire war.

'Fall of the Reich' covers both the Soviet and German offensives in the long Siege of Budapest, the incredible tenacity of Axis forces in holding "Fortress Kurland" and the Soviet "Operation Bagration" that freed Byelorussia and opened up Eastern Europe to the Red Army.

Sixteen historically based missions across 10 new maps will challenge beginning and veteran strategists as they try to either capture or defend the remnants of the German war machine during the final days of World War II in Europe.

Blitzkrieg features

Two Campaigns - Fight for either Germany or the USSR in 2 full campaigns in the last major offensives of the Eastern Front.

8 Missions allow you to replay World War II history

Commendations - The Kurland Cuffband and the Medal for the Capture of Budapest

4 New historically authentic units

6 New Single Player Maps - covering famous battles
