Days of Wonder have announced the Memoir ‘44 Breakthrough Expansion.

From their website:

The Memoir ‘44 Breakthrough Expansion will take you deep into the battles of World War II with two, double-sided, 9-panel board maps covering all four Memoir ‘44 map environments – countryside, beach, winter and deserts. These oversize boards stretch the limit of current printing technology and are 13 x 17 hexes deep, opening up the Breakthrough format to new, more expansive scenarios.

The Breakthrough Expansion includes 15, never-in-print-before scenarios, created by Jacques “jdRommel” David, and Memoir ‘44 author, Richard Borg. These scenarios cover the Western and Eastern Fronts, as well as the Mediterranean and Pacific Theaters and include classic battles such as: Operation Crusader; Operation Amherst; and two different renditions of Sword Beach – all designed for the 13 x 17 hex Breakthrough format.

The Memoir ‘44 Breakthrough Expansion is an expansion for 2 players and requires a copy of Memoir ‘44. Depending on the scenario being played, additional expansions are highly recommended to fully enjoy the new Breakthrough maps, although players can substitute game pieces if they don’t own a specified expansion. The Memoir ‘44 Breakthrough expansion will be available in April in Europe and in early May in North America from your favorite Memoir ‘44 retailer and the Days of Wonder Web Store.
