Blitz New Patch Preview 1

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone. Like you know, a new patch should be released by Korona and his team soon... Among the new stuff available, we have many new maps (multiplayers, coops, challenges, missions) included in the patch. Overall, almost 60 maps for different types of gameplay. Here's a short description of these maps and for some of these maps, images showing the starting position of the enemy troops.


But first of all, a brief description of the types of map you'll find in the new patch:


Type of maps:

1- Mission maps

2- Coop maps

3- Challenge maps

4- Multi-players maps


1. Mission maps: A solo map with epic battles. Units are delivered or built.

2. Coop maps: 2 or 3 players working together to win against the enemy controlled by an AI. You can build units.

3. Challenge maps: Multi-player maps with pre-built units on it. You can also build units.

4. Multi-player maps: For 2 to 6 players. You start from the scratch with minimal units and buildings



Let's start with the new missions maps:




MISSION FORTRESS EUROPE (from Neo) Germany April 1941. You have the option to invade the USSR or build up your defenses and let the Reds attack first. Every Panzer division is delivered at your train station according to history and to the new type of tanks available. When you reach mid 1944, you have to face the Allies on the Western Front. Tips : It is recommanded to defeat the Soviets before the Allies have landed in France because a 2 front war is not really what you need to win.





Mission Operation Desert Sun : (from DirtyHarry) After the British lost at El Alamein, the Russians sent a strike force to the Middle East. This force has come under constant attack and is close to defeat. Your orders are to go in and make sure that doesn't happen. Really fun mission from Dirty Harry!



MissionTigerCompany-1.jpg MissionTigerCompany2.jpg


Mission Tiger Company (From Neo) You're taking part in the Battle of Kursk leading a Tiger company from the 1st SS Division Leibstandarte. You have to open the way for the SS Division (controled by the AI) and destroy the following objective one by one: 1-The village of Bykovka 2-An artillery battery on a hill 3- The village of Prokhorovka 4- Another artillery battery on a hill 5- The city of Oboyan 6- The city of Kursk. Tips: It is strongly recommended to follow your orders and do not skip objectives. Also you will receive infantry and artillery reinforcments after the capture of Oboyan, they will be very important to stop the Soviet's counter attacks when attacking the city of Kursk.



MissionTheGreatPatrioticWar-1.jpg MissionTheGreatPatrioticWar.jpg


Mission The Great Patriotic War: (From Neo) The map simulates what was the largest and most costly offensive in human history. The player will control the Soviet forces and has to first halt and then later defeat the German invaders in several phases.





Mission The Battle of Prokhorovka : (from Pivac) Awsome mission on a really nice map from Pivac and a cool animation at the begining. The player has to stop waves of German tanks and protect a communication centre at the rear. Tips : The use of artillery is a must to avoid too many tank losses.



Ok now we have the following missions already included in the campaigns but now also available in the map menu.

Let's go with the 9 German missions:


Germany at war



MissionGerman1 (Europe38): (from Neo) This mission is about the pre-war events of 1938 with Czechoslovakia and subsequently the invasion of Poland, France, Holland and Belgium. The United Kindom would send troops to France to help them if Germany attacks first. Tips: the easiest way to conquer Western Europe is to follow history and invade in order: Czechoslovakia (you get the Skoda tank production), Poland (you get part of the Polish troops if you conquer the Western Poland) and finally France,Holland & Belgium.



MissionGerman2 (Poland41): (from Neo) June 1941 Operation Barbarossa, the invasion of the USSR by the Germans. You're in command of the 3rd Panzer Division and you have to 1) cross the Bug River, the border between USSR and Germany, and 2) secure the area east of the river. This is an easy mission where their Russian 'comrades' are taken by surprise by the sudden German Blitzkrieg.



MissionGerman3 (Supply Lines 41) : (from Neo) July 1941 the Germans are deep into the Soviet's territory and their supply line are mor vital than ever for their push towards Smolensk and Moscow. General Timoshenko’s 5th & 7th Mechanised Corps will attack the flank of your supply line. You have to protect the truck convoys and stop the Soviet flank attacks. Tips: You have air superiority over the Reds, your Stukas should help greatly.



MissionGerman4 (Mozhaisk Line 41): (from Neo) October 1941 you are in charge of the 2nd, 3rd and 4th Panzer Groups during Operation Typhoon. You have to capture all the cities west of Moscow. These cities are forming a defensive line called The Mozhaisk Line. Tips: Make sure you conquer every city without too much losses because if you have less than 15 Panzer left, the operation will be cancelled. The use of your 105mm artillery guns would be wise.

MissionGerman5 (Moscow41) : (from Neo) November 1941 your 3rd and 4th Panzer Groups are ready to roll over Moscow. But time is playing against you. The Red Army is building up forces to launch a massive counter attack soon. Tips: Don’t waste too much time... rush to Moscow using your Stukas before the weather turns too cold.



MissionGerman6 (Stalingrad42): (from Neo) The mission for your 6th Army: destroy the symbolic city of Stalingrad and secure the South Eastern Front. Under your command is the 24th and 14th Panzer Divisions, many infantry divisions, the Luftwaffe bombers and a big rail gun (the Dora) ready to launch its 800mm shells over the city. Tips: Capture the harbor as fast as you can and stop the Soviets from sending reinforcements by boat over the Volga. Use your Luftwaffe to destroy the artillery batteries over the Volga. Also: be patient, you have to pay for every piece of ground you gain but don’t waste too much time...on November the Reds could trap your 6th Army inside the city. Then your only hope will be to stop the Soviet’s Operation Ring while a rescue mission (Operation Winterstorm) is launched.



MissionGerman7 (Citadel43): (from Neo) July 1943 You can crush the bulk of the Red Army with a massive force of Panzers including your new Tigers from the 2nd SS Panzer Corps. This is an ultimate battle where the Soviets have nothing left to loose. Tips: Make sure you use scouts (planes or snipers) to lead your advance into the enemy territory. You have to use to your advantage theTigers and Panthers long range guns.



MissionGerman8 (Urals44): (from Neo) May 1944 This fictional scenario brings you over the Urals mountain range where the Soviet military industries are runing at full capacity. You have to capture Tankograd (the Chelyiabinsk factories), the Factory 183 at Nizhny Tagil and the SU-76 factory at Kirov. Tips: Make sure you build a solid defense to protect your train station before moving your troops to the east...you are into a no-man's land...only limited reinforcements will be possible since you are now 1800 miles (2900km) from Berlin.



MissionGerman9 (Ardennes44): (from Neo) December 1944, the Soviets were defeated few months ago and now the Germans want to force the Allies to negotiate a peace agreement. This is why Operation Watch on the Rhine is launched. Your mission: destroy every fuel depot the Allies have and destroy the American and British divisions in the Ardennes. Tips: Don’t waste too much time because General Patton’s division could be sent to the rescue faster than expected.

Now for the Allies we have 2 missions:


Allies at war








MissionAllies1 (Africa 1941) : (from Neo) November 1941, Your British troops have to relieve the siege of Tobruk. Under your command: the British 8th Army including the famous Desert Rats Division. But be cautious, the Afrka Korps is commanded by Rommel, the Desert Fox. Tips: Your Matilda and Valentine tanks can challenge any Panzers... the only problem could come from the powerful German 88mm guns. Use your artillery to destroy these 88s and the victory should be yours General!





MissionAllies2 (Normandy44): (from Neo) Normandy June 7th 1944 The Allies have landed & the Normandy Campaign has begun. This is a very special mission where you have to liberate villages like Cherbourg, St-Lô, Caen, Carentan, Douvres, Villers-Bocage and Bayeux using your American, British and Canadian troops. Your troops are delivered on the beach (some via these nice LST ships) Also you have naval support from the ships supporting your landings (a cool 3 in 1 weapons from Korona!). Tips: Use snipers to guide your naval guns to clean the bulk of the German divisions.

And finally we have these Soviet missions:


The USSR at war




MissionSoviet1 (Moscow41): (from Neo) 5 months ago the Germans invaded the Soviet Union. The Axis forces considered Moscow, capital of the USSR and the largest Soviet city, to be their primary military and political objective. To defend Moscow you have to deploy the newly raised reserve armies (the 5th and 16th) and hope your reinforcements from the Far East will arrive on time. Tips: Use & protect your Bm-13 Katyushas, they can help a lot.




MissionSoviet2 (Leningrad41): (from KORONA) Our northern front has collapsed. Our forces have sought refuge in the great city of Leningrad but the Germans have cut it off from our lines and are laying seige! The only supply route is across the now frozen Lake Ladoga. You are being transfered to oversee the defenses. Keep the city monuments safe and maintain the supply route across the lake. NKL-26 snowmobiles are available to enable fast transport across the ice and snow. This map is not only a cool map but also very original compare to the usual missions.




MissionSoviet3 (Stalingrad 42): (from Neo) The enemy is at the gates. The German 6th Army & 4th Panzer Army are ready to roll over Stalingrad. You have to defend the city with reinforcements coming from the north and across the Volga. The orders are simple: “Not one step backwards!” Tips: use your artillery to destroy the German Panzers when they get stuck on the minefields.




MissionSoviet4 (Uranus North 42): (from Neo) Launch Operation Uranus against the north wing of the German front defended by the Romanian 3rd Army. Tips: Romanian troops can be defeated easily but beware of the German 22nd Panzer Division coming from the south-west to the rescue. The Il-2 ground attack aircraft will be very useful.




MissionSoviet5 (Uranus South 42): (from Neo) This should be an easy one for the Red Army: Crush the Romanian 4th Army on the south flank. Bring the vodka comrade, the German 6th Army will be trapped in Stalingrad soon!




MissionSoviet6 (Winterstorm 43): (from Neo) You have to counter the German rescue mission called Operation Winterstorm. For the Germans this is their last hope to save their 6th Army trapped in Stalingrad. Time is on your side. You’ll receive reinforcements from the powerful 2nd Guard Army soon. Tips: Just make sure your defense is solid between Stalingrad (up right) and the Von Manstein troops coming from the south.




MissionSoviet7 (KurskNorth43): (from Neo) Kursk July 1943 the Germans launched Operation Zitadelle with the 9th Army trying to crush your 13th Army on the north front. You’ll have to face the latest of the Wehrmacht weapons including Tigers and Elephants. These panzers are monsters comparing to your T-34s 76mm and T-70s. Tips: The Elephants are vulnerable to infantry attacks, so build up infantry squads and keep them in reserve.




MissionSoviet8 (KurskSouth43) (from Neo) You’ll face a tougher mission on the southern front of the Battle of Kursk. Von Manstein's Army Group South is better equipped than Model's Army in the north. 3 Panzer Corps are attacking including the 2nd SS Panzer Corps with 3 elite Panzer Divisions. Tips: Don’t waste your T-34s head to head against the panzers. Instead use flanks attacks when the enemy is deep in your territory. Use your ground attack aircraft wisely.




MissionSoviet9 (Smolensk43) (from Neo) August 1943 the Germans have retreated from Kursk. Smolensk is the key to their defensive line for their stolen USSR territories. They built a very solid defense there…but you have to liberate the city and destroy their last hopes of a counter attack. Under your command: 15 armies from the Kalinin & Western Fronts including the new KV-85. Tips: be patient and conquer one piece of ground at a time using your artillery.




Mission Soviet9B (Poland45): (from Neo) Poland winter 1945 your 2nd Guard Tank Army has the mission to destroy the 11th SS Panzer Division near a small polish village. This SS division having Kingtigers, you need to use all your best guns (IS-2, SU-100, T-34 85mm) to stop the enemy. This map is based on a previous 2 players version from Captain Miller.




MissionSoviet9C (Berlin45): (from Neo) April 1945 You lead the Soviet spearhead of the 1st Belorussian Front. You have tons of tanks and troops to conquer Berlin, but you have to cross the Seelow Heights, the last major defensive line outside Berlin. Time is of the essence. You have to conquer Berlin before the timer expires otherwise Stalin may choose another General to lead his troops. Tips: Use your artillery and your aircraft to open a breech at the Seelow Heigths and be cautious, it is easy to lock yourself into a trap if you send too many tanks at same time through the enemy defensive line.

News update: The mission map "Normandy44" and the Challenge map "Battle of Normandy" now have LST ships on the beach with Shermans on it. At the begining a nice animation show these Shermans delivered on every beach. Thanks to Phoib for the purchase of this cool ship and to Korona to make it working! :)
