I discovered this game by the beginning of 2019 when I went through one of those annoying periods that every gamer has where we feel that there’s nothing to play.
I’m a sucker for strategy games so I needed to try it out.
As you can see from many of my articles, I’m a fan of mods.
I absolutely adore adding new content to games and expanding older titles. I have to say that I was a bit disappointed to find out that Sudden Strike 4 didn’t have as many mods as other games I’ve written about, but I managed to scavenge around some communities and piece together a great list.
I’m just going to start with a small disclaimer before we go on: the quality of these mods is not as high as the mods I’ve reviewed in my other lists.
Don’t underestimate just how small is the amount of modders of Sudden Strike 4, and that obviously influences on the level of quality that we can expect from the mods.
In any case, most of these have very positive reviews and can play well. I also skipped over a lot of really boring mods that barely modded anything in the game, which is why this list is as short as it is. Still, these freebies should give you plenty of extra play room.
7. Polish Mission
With this mod you will take on the role of a Polish captain during the early stages of World War 2.
With that, I mean you will be tasked to defend the Polish countryside from waves upon waves of crazy Nazis doing their best to take the land away from your countrymen.
We all know how that ends, right?
Well now it’s your turn to go back to 1939 and try to right the wrongs of history by stopping the atrocities committed by the Nazis when they invaded Poland.
Will you be able to do it? Most certainly not. But hey, the worst thing you can do is not try.
6. Jokker’s Heaven
Alright, this one might be a sample mod.
But given the lack of quality mod content of Sudden Strike 4, it takes a spot on my list.
It adds one new level to the game which, to be fair, it’s actually really cool.
It gives you just a few extra minutes of gameplay (half an hour tops, I’d say) but even in its barebones state, it’s one of the best mods that you’ll find of Sudden Strike 4.
I’m scraping the bottom of the barrel trying to organize some killer mods so I know not all of these will fit with most people. But if this doesn’t seem appealing no worries, there’s a lot more cool stuff as we keep going.
5. Realistic Difficulty
Although this is still in its barebones stage (I’m ashamed to admit many mods on this list are like this), this is by far one of the best mods that you can try when it comes to augmenting the difficulty of the game.
Everything will feel far more realistic and less arcadey, so expect tanks and other vehicles to take much more damage than they do in the base game.
And regular soldiers are also far more likely to die quickly.
The mod might be updated in the future, although it doesn’t seem likely at the minute. Still it works great for now so why not give it a try?
Well, this mod is super basic, but the first version of Resistance is not.
This mod is a simple fix for the Resistance mod, but you can also get the entire mod following the same link.
However, one of the main issues during the beginning of the game is the fact that the terrain seems to be a bit too uneven and glitchy.
The main objective of this version of the mod is to redo the terrain of the map, making it far more playable without feeling the need to move your vehicles and troops around countless times.
I’ve tested it and, to be honest, it looks quite good.
It’s a great mod that adds far more to the game than the majority of the other mods I’ve come across.
3. Operation Nordland
It seems like this mod has been worked on for such a long time, yet it’s a bit disappointing that it hasn’t been finished yet.
In any case, Operation Nordland adds the legendary Battle of Berlin to the game.
Take the side of the USSR and destroy every inch of German resistance to take the city in the name of the free world or, well, the Commies. They’re bad enough, but they aren’t Nazis.
I really look forward to fully testing this mod once the creator is finished with it.
It seems to be going quite well, but it’s still missing some buildings and the missions isn’t fully finished – even with the current release at version 2.0!
2. WW2 Realism Mod
This is a work-in-progress mod that makes the game far more realistic.
Currently you can download it and check out the features of the entire mod in a test map. And I’d say it’s totally worth it.
This map allows you to fight Soviets and Germans on each flank, and you will be able to play with the allied troops.
As the creator of the mod states, there will be new troops coming soon.
He’s just waiting for the new modding tools to be released by the creators of the game!
1. Sudden Strike 4Ever Mod
This is the best mod ever made for Sudden Strike.
In fact, I’d say it’s the only one that is truly worth it for every type of player.
It makes troops stay on the map forever – even after being killed.
More blood, more realistic parachutes, better fire rates, more realistic damage, new vehicles and infantry, and much, much more.
This is one of the best mods I’ve seen for a game hands-down. And it makes it even better the fact that the rest are either incomplete or mediocre at best.
If you’re a fan of Sudden Strike 4 then this mod is a must-grab.
