Developer Relic Entertainment’s World War II strategy title Company of Heroes 2 is getting its first downloadable content.

The studio released Case Blue today on Steam. Players that bought the Digital Collector’s Edition and Preorder Edition of the game will get Case Blue for free. Everyone else can purchase the content, which is available on Steam, for $10.

Case Blue adds a series of scenarios and challenges based on the 1941 German offensive to capture the Caucasus region of the U.S.S.R. The German forces easily captured most of this area before facing heavy resistance near Stalingrad.

In Case Blue, Company of Heroes 2 players take control of the German forces during this attack on its Eastern front.
