Multiplayer standalones (sold separately) allow you to play on any map against anyone owning any COH2 product. The original CoH 2 game gives you access to two multiplayer armies from the Eastern Front: the Red Army (SOV) and the Wehrmacht Ostheer (GER). It also comes with a gritty single-player campaign that will give you a chance to familiarize yourself with the series core tenets.
