RTS sequel will arrive next month, comrade
I’m really grateful that Sega has picked up Company of Heroes 2 after THQ’s collapse. The original was a great real-time strategy title, one that I had most of my fun with in multiplayer more than the single-player. This trailer for the campaign mode has me intrigued as it seems to set up a personal take of the conflict on the Eastern front.
The trailer shows an unnamed Soviet veteran, seemingly recounting his story battling the Nazi forces over four years. It’ll be interesting to see how Relic handles that era of the Second World War and how the horrors of that period of the conflict will be portrayed. We’ll find out in a month’s time when Company of Heroes 2 is released on June 25.
