Men of War: Red Tide is a stand-alone expansion to Men of War and focuses on less well-known World War 2 battles, including Odessa, Sevastopol, Theodosia, Eltingen, Nikolaev, and Constanta.
The gameplay remains largely the same as in the main game, with units being either given at the start of missions or requisitioned during the battle. Unlike most other real-time strategy games, vehicles do not accumulate damage and are usually either destroyed, damaged or unaffected by hits, simulating realism.
The new playable campaign includes Romania and Italy's efforts in the Eastern Front. Also included are six single battles on the same front between 1941 and 1945.
