This content requires the base game Panzer Corps 2 on Steam in order to play.
The crucial moment, when Germany's future on the Eastern Front will be decided, has come! The Axis forces in Russia are still in disarray despite the conclusion of the Battle of Stalingrad. Due to the massive gaps left by the destruction of the German, Hungarian, and Romanian forces, the front needs to be stabilized immediately. But even if these attempts are successful, the considerably more significant Battle of Kursk is just ahead.
The Eastern Front serves as the sole focal point of the Axis Operations 1943 DLC Campaign. The prospect of permanently changing the direction of the war in this campaign - as well as in upcoming campaigns - is the culmination of this DLC's answers to series' long-standing questions.
Players can select a preset core force to embark into the Axis Operations 1943 East campaign or import their core troops from the previously completed Axis Operations 1942 East campaign. While the default force comprises a respectable number of veteran troops and a variety of heroes sufficient to allow any player to succeed in this new campaign, imported armies can seek extra development and challenges through increasing difficulty levels and sophisticated game modes.
Additional historical German commanders from World War II will make cameos in this campaign, in addition to the ongoing theme of extra mission goals based on actual historical events. Enjoy the additional work put into making these characters come to life because a lot of their real-world experiences and ideas influenced their writing and mannerisms in the campaign.
You may purchase a range of special benefits, such as access to caches of looted enemy equipment, exclusive prototype aircraft, and the opportunity to hire additional historical officers, by exchanging Commendation Points earned by accomplishing extra goals and winning to different degrees.
No 1943 campaign can ignore the iconic Battle of Kursk, just as no 1942 campaign may be whole without Stalingrad. Take part in a unique interpretation of this conflict, which is sometimes referred to as the largest tank fight in history, by pitting your Wehrmacht veterans against the apparently interminable columns of Soviet fortifications defending their position. You are still in charge of leading your soldiers through the fight even though there are chances for previous successes to impact it. You could also have the last historical opportunity for Germany to retake strategic control of the Eastern Front. Or perhaps you'll create a brand-new, wholly unique route with your efforts. a road leading from here into a history that is still unknown!
However, the conclusion of 1943 East is simply the most recent phase in your campaign; it is not the endgame. Players will once more be given the chance to keep their core army for use in the following Axis Operations Campaign game once Axis Operations 1943 East is over.
