Historical Special: the Battle of Monte Cassino (EU)

As promised in our Sneak Peek of the month, this May, we’re introducing a new kind of special, inspired by history. And we will start with a big one: Monte Cassino. This battle was a costly series of Allied assaults against what we called the Winter Line, established by the Axis during the Italian campaign. It lasted 123 days, involved thousands of soldiers, paratroopers, some tanks, and even a bear, Wojtek, who became famous for moving crates of ammo for the second Polish Corps.

From 21 May at 07:00 to 28 May at 07:00 CEST (UTC+2) you have the chance to reenact this iconic battle with this special. To do so, you just have to pick a side by redeeming one of the codes below charging into battle for its respective missions. Remember though, you can only choose one faction for the whole event!

  1. Sadly, thought it was a nice New Map from Italy!

    coming from the second World War mountain battles near Monti Casino ~ would be epic and different to the game

    however sigh … its Wargame and all they give us is dumbed down Maps with corridors & City make believe cartoon shit nowadays

    a shame
