The game contains more than 40 missions in 5 campaigns in separate scenarios or single one-off missions. Japan has been added as a playable nation in addition to Germany, Russia, Great Britain and the United States for a total of 5 countries. The player's troops will have to march through rain, snow and other weather effects in landscapes set in winter and summer. It's possible to control boats, railways, tanks, aircraft, ambulances and transport vehicles and destroy bridges, houses, trees, forts and more objects.

The game includes a editor so over 20 in-game maps for the multiplayer mode and over 10 maps for single missions can be created.
