You have made it to the gates of Moscow in Operation Barbarossa, aren’t you curious to see how it all turns out? The beginning of December 1941 saw German forces fighting at the gates of Moscow. Thereafter, ferocious Soviet resistance, coupled with exhaustion and horrendous weather, meant that this was to be the end of the line for the German army.
The new Moscow 41 DLC will be out on the 31st of August on Steam and the price will be 6,99 USD. The Steam page is already up with screenshots and more details about the content of this DLC.
Take Back the Motherland
In Moscow ’41 you take control of Soviet forces as they deliver blow after blow to an overextended Wehrmacht during their winter counteroffensives of 1941/42. Though battered and bruised, German armies will prove mighty opponents for the less experienced Red Army, which must also contend with overly ambitious objectives set forth by the Soviet leader Joseph Stalin.

Examples of Moscow ’41 missions
November 1941, As winter closes in, the German forces in the Ukraine occupy an increasingly lengthy front, with increasingly depleted formations. At Rostov, German panzers advance on the city, but there are no infantry divisions to back them up. The Soviets throw dozens of new formations, backed by katyushas, into the attack. Rostov will be the first major city to be liberated from Nazi occupation, and no German units from this sector can be sent to assist at Moscow.
Defense of Moscow
November 1941, After the Russian winter turns mud into solid, icy ground the Germans mount one final push on Moscow. Infantry batter their way forward, while the panzers seek to encircle the Soviet capital. As the exhausted Wehrmacht approaches to within visual range of the spires of the Kremlin, Stavka commits dozens of fresh formations. The Wehrmacht is stopped cold.
