Developer Relic Entertainment has released a new DLC for its World War 2-era strategy game Company of Heroes 2. The DLC, named Case Blue, is specifically for the Theater of War component of the game. It is available on Steam for $9.99, which roughly translates to Rs 627, and consists of both single player as well as co-op scenarios.
All of the new scenarios are based on real-life events from the German campaign on the Eastern Front of World War 2 in the summer of 1942.

Case Blue was earlier part of the Digital Collector's Edition and the Pre-Order Edition of Company of Heroes 2 before the game was launched. Thanks to this, those who missed out on the pre-orders can finally grab it from digital distribution platform Steam.
Theater of War is a mini-campaign of sorts that lets players experience a new single player story from events happening in different parts of the world concurrently to the events taking place in the actual single-player campaign.
The game is a sequel to the original Company of Heroes and has the same setting as that of the original – World War II. The original game was praised for its intensive action and a high requirement of tactics. The game quickly gained a lot of fans in the pro-gaming circuit. While it did have a single player campaign that had some of the biggest events of World War II, its multiplayer was undoubtedly the main pull of the game.
