Panzer Corps 2: Axis Operations - 1945

About this game

Germany lies in ruins. Relentlessly assaulted on all sides and pounded mercilessly by Allied Strategic Bombing, the German Reich still refuses to admit defeat. Last ditch counteroffensives are put into action in a desperate attempt to turn the tide of the Second World War. Will these desperate gambles pay off, or will they continue to heap misery and death upon the German Wehrmacht?
Panzer Corps 2’s Axis Operations at long last approaches the end of the Second World War in Europe... one way or another!

THE WAR CONCLUDES

In the Historical Campaign of 1945 East, you will experience the final months of the Second World War from a perspective so rarely covered in other games of the genre as you prepare your Wehrmacht forces for their final, desperate offensives.
To properly tell this story, the historical campaign focuses extensively on not just the final battles on the Eastern Front, but also the surrounding context. What did last ditch attacks such as Operation Bodenplatte or Spring Awakening really accomplish, but also at what terrible costs did they come with?
As you fight to the bitter end, learn the real fates of both true Historical German figures and also uncover the fates of the Axis Operation’s unique cast of characters. In doing so, find out for yourself some of the truths of why so many rank and file Wehrmacht soldiers continued the fighting well past any hope of achieving victory in the Second World War.

THE WAR CONTINUES

But once again, the latest Panzer Corps 2 Axis Operations content pack contains yet another campaign! Be ready to continue the story of Ahistorical 1944 right where it left off after victory at the Battle of Ploesti.
Despite repelling the Western Allied landings at Normandy and halting the Soviet invasion of Easter Europe, Germany still stands at an impasse. Total victory seems further than ever, as Allied resolve is merely shaken and apparently nowhere near broken.
And now another major offensive is prepared in the East, but to what ultimate end? Can it actually bring total victory, or will it just continue to bleed all nations involved?

For better or worse, this is a classic hex wargame with updated graphics.

Panzer Corps 2 has some noticeable flaws with regards to in-game mechanics and performance woes. Likewise, it doesn't try to reinvent age-old systems. Though it can be a little tedious the further you are in the campaign, the game makes up for it with a ton of playable content.
