Second Wave is the first Division Pack for Steel Division: Normandy 44, expanding your tactical possibilities to dominate your enemy during the Invasion of Normandy. Take control of 4 new divisions : The American 4th Armored, the British Commando Brigade, the 9. Panzerdivision and the 16.Luftwaffe, each one of them designed to bring new flavour to the game.
Lead 35 new units into the battle, including the famous M18 Hellcat tank destroyer. Use the new Storch aerial artillery observer to spot your enemy and unleash hell on his units.
Second Wave also includes an exclusive cosmetic Ace: the Lieutenant-Colonel Creighton Williams Abrams and his famous M4(75) command tank.
Second Wave comes with four new varied divisions. The Commando Brigade, group mostly made up of elite British infantry with less options for the B phase but that get a large amount of income for the end game. The Panzerdivision gives a strong B and C phase and strong and veteran tanks. The Luftwaffe gives you 100 for the A and C phase but a high amount of income, 150, for the B phase, they are mostly made up of poorly trained infantry, captured French vehicles, fairly strong artillery support, and a powerful bomber for air support. The 4th Armored division has a strong B and C phase, a very nice looking veteran tank unit for their A phase, and varied and well detailed vehicles in each group. If you are looking for some new division options with their own feel and some nice looking units, some of them being new to them, then this will likely be content worth getting, though there isn't anything new mechanically here the free update did add a new mode and map to the game.
As you know, Steel Division: Normandy 44 was an excellent strategy game from Eugen Systems and we must appreciate this company for their great game, nowadays, you can't find a wargame like Steel Division: Normandy 44 (I say this because i have played 300 hours this game). But in Second Wave expansion, you can choose from 4 army and play with them, I think this is a good decision which developers took. Also you can find some other things in this dlc. But in my opinion, the developers could add a co-op campaign in this wargame. Anyway this expansion is great.
As a big fan of Steel Division, I can say it is an excellent DLC, each division turned out to be extremely unique making the game even more fun with a lot of original units! Sadly biggest problem is the player base which shrinks regularly making online matches almost impossible to initiate. Perhaps this DLC will make some of the players come back.
Steel Division: Normandy 44 - Second Wave is a useful and great DLC pack for the main game which grants you some cool and valuable stuff like adding some cosmetic items and 4x new divisions along the ones you already have in Steel Division: Normandy 44 to lead them in RTS battlefields of the game, and with it you will experience one of the best RTS games you ever played so far! with the price tag and the contents this pack offers you i can say this is really worth it. it brings your game experience some how to a new level!
