New features include:

New Single-Player Campaign:  For the first time, play as the Soviet army and follow the global invasion from the perspective of the motherland. World in Conflict: Soviet Assault continues the franchise’s tradition of gripping, Hollywood-quality voice-over performances, tense and emotional storylines and unbelievable, cinematic storytelling methods.
New Maps:  World in Conflict: Soviet Assault’s award-winning multiplayer modes get more maps to facilitate the intense team-based battles.
Action-Focused Gameplay:  The game’s unique design removes base- building, resource gathering and “tech trees” in favor of fast, hard- hitting combat that focuses on tactical decisions – much like an FPS – creating a new genre: Action-Strategy.
Player Roles:  Players chose to command units from Infantry, Armor, Support, or Air roles; multiplayer teams will need to master each role for maximum effectiveness.
Real World Super-Powered Warfare:  Unleash the authentic military arsenals of the great military superpowers, such as tanks, planes, trucks, troops and helicopters -- as well as nuclear weapons -- from the USA, Soviet Union and NATO.
Cutting-Edge Graphics:  The latest version of Massive’s proprietary Masstech engine features advanced lighting and physics, utilizes the latest DX10 technology, and allows for full 360-degree camera control.
Complete Destructibility:  As the battle rages, the world environment pays the price as houses crumble, forests burn, terrain becomes deformed and the entire environment changes.

I have the original game, but never finished the campaign. :( I do have a strong NATO vs. WP itch to scratch, though. On the other hand, 20 EUR for this expension seems expensive. If you don't have the original game yet you can get a "Gold" ersion which has game plus add on for 30 EUR.  ::)

I do like the trailer for it on their main page, though:

Nice camera movement.  :D

Checking Amazon.de - they have the expansion for 13 EUR. I guess I'll check stores, and if someone has it for 10 I'll take it.

I did enjoy WiC, but multiplayer was ruined by assholes. And I had no time to join a clan. :(

Yes but I don't know how you feel about a French Version.

Also, it's on direct2drive.com for 29.95$
