Ardennes Assault is the second expansion pack for Company of Heroes 2, and balances out its precursor expansion, The Western Front Armies, by adding singleplayer campaign content.

Singleplayer Campaign Edit

The singleplayer Campaign of Ardennes Assault takes place in the Battle of the Bulge, a brutal conflict on the Western Front lasting from December 1944 to January 1945.
