Frontline Is Back: Fight Epic 30v30 Battles & Earn D-Day Tokens!



Commanders!

Frontline returns to the game with Episode 1! Available from June 10 through June 17, it offers intense 30v30 action on three gigantic maps and rich rewards.

[h2]Maps[/h2]
All Frontline maps have three lines. The first two lines consist of 1×1 km sectors which the attackers must capture. The undivided third line houses the main objectives of the attacking side: massive gun turrets.

The set of colossal (9 km² each) locations is the same as usual: you can find yourself on green Normandie, snow-covered Kraftwerk, or sandy Fata Morgana.

[h2]Dynamic Battle Scenarios[/h2]
The dynamic battle scenarios system from the last Episode is in place, offering three different sets of rules regarding Combat Reserves. You play by one of the three scenarios selected randomly before a battle begins (the scenario type will be shown on the loading screen).
[center][/center]
  • Standard Battle (34% chance): Combat Reserves are used as per the regular Frontline rules.
  • Operational Support (33% chance): Combat Reserves' cooldown time is decreased by 50% (after the start of a battle, respawning, or unlocking a new Reserve).
  • Twist of Fate (33% chance): Upon reaching certain Ranks in this scenario, choose between two randomly selected Combat Reserves. Combat Reserves placed in slots in the Garage before battle have a better chance of being offered for selection, and the Level of Reserves purchased with Combat Reserve Points will increase by 1 in battle (so they will have 4 Levels).


[h2]Rewards[/h2]
In Episode 1 of Frontline, you can get plenty of rewards. Along with Combat Reserve Points, they include Experimental Equipment, Battle Pass Points, bonds, a Universal Manual, Directives, and Retraining Orders.
On top of these regular rewards, this time you can earn D-Day Tokens in Frontline. Go to the Command Center, accept "Into the Frontline!" Personal Battle Mission, and participate in three Frontline battles to receive 5 D-Day Tokens. These can get you awesome prizes from the D-Day Store that include Premium vehicles.

Operation Overlord: Join a New PvE Mode!



From June 6 through July 4, experience the historically inspired Operation Overlord PvE mode and join the iconic Normandy landings. Dedicated to the 80th anniversary of D-Day, the largest amphibious operation in military history, this single-player combat scenario immerses you in the pivotal events of June 6, 1944.

Available from June 6, 2024, at 02:00 UTC through July 4, 2024 at 02:00



[h3]Mode Objectives[/h3]
Operation Overlord is a single-player battle scenario inspired by the real historical events of D-Day during World War II. As part of a team of AI-driven allies, you fight against computer-controlled enemies.
  • Your first objective is to break through the coastal defenses and minefields. Secure the beachhead by targeting and destroying coastal bunkers, suppressing enemy positions, and breaching fortified defenses.
  • Work with your AI-driven allies to ensure mission success.

[h3]Difficulty Levels and Missions[/h3]
The mode has two difficulty levels: Regular and Rigorous, with missions providing different rewards for each level. Both levels are available from the start.
Each difficulty has three missions: The first is available on June 6, while the other two remain locked until June 13, when all three become available. The second and third missions mirror the first one but with added challenges to enhance your gameplay experience.

[h3]Core Gameplay[/h3]
  • Each operation is intuitive: Rush forward, follow navigation markers, and destroy enemies and coastal bunkers on sight. Here are some highlights and unique play mechanics of the mode:
  • Event Map: Battles will unfold on the special Overlord map, enriched with many details and interactive objects to replicate the atmosphere of the Normandy landings.
  • Combat Vehicle: You will head into battle in the legendary M4A3E8 Sherman.

[h3]Unique Features[/h3]
  • Battleship Support: Surprise enemies by using your shell tracers to help the USS Frankford target enemy bunkers on the fog-covered beach.


  • Smoke Signals: Available after disabling enemy anti-aircraft defenses, use these to mark targets like enemy fortifications and vehicles for allied battleships.


  • Minefields: The coastline area is littered with mines, so move carefully! You have a unique support vehicle on your side, however. The Sherman Crab will help you and your allies to navigate the buried explosives.

[h3]Rewards[/h3]

Each difficulty level only has one mission available at the start of the event, with additional missions and extra rewards active from June 13. The reward pool includes:
  • Credits
  • Bonds
  • Free XP
  • Battle Pass Points

[h3]2D Styles and Camos[/h3]
Rewards also include two stunning all-season 2D styles and two cool camos inspired by the events of D-Day.
Once you complete all missions for Rigorous difficulty, you will also receive the commemorative "Overlord Veteran" medal.

Good luck on the sandy beaches of Normandy, Commanders! Complete historically inspired missions and earn unique styles alongside other rewards!
