There's some new content for Company of Heroes 2, with players able to grab some paid-for and free content for Relic's WWII RTS.

The free content comes in the form of two new multiplayer maps (Hill 331 and Don River), several tweaks to the game, and Steam Workshop integration for maps built with the recently released World Builder. Premium content costs £2.99 and includes ten new challenges and battles, playable by both sides, called ‘Southern Fronts'. Details of which are below:

Solo Challenge: Spring Rasputitsa
