A stand-alone expansion compatible with the original game, Opposing Fronts focuses on Operation Market-Garden and the battle for the liberation of Caen, France, during World War II. Players will command the British 2nd Army and the German Panzer Elite in missions.

In addition to the new single-player content, Opposing Fronts features new multiplayer modes and will support DirectX 10 out the box.

Relic's first Company of Heroes game was hailed as one of the finest RTS titles of all time, meaning anticipation for Opposing Fronts is burning hot. It's due out on November 11.
