About Company of Heroes 2

It is 1941 and the beginning of what will become the most brutal conflict of World War II, as Germany launches a full-scale invasion of the frozen tundra of the Soviet Union which would result in over 14 million military casualties. Take command of the iconic Soviet Red Army in brutal frontline warfare to free Mother Russia from the invading Nazis. Your strategic skills and tactical expertise hold the power to tip the very balance of this conflict in the sequel to the critically acclaimed and multi award-winning Company of Heroes. Engage in visceral tactical combat that will define you as a military leader and challenge you to wield the might of the Soviet Empire as you smash your way to Berlin.



Company of Heroes 2 takes the fight to the snow-filled fields of the Eastern Front as players command the Soviet Red Army during the World’s darkest hour. It is the year 1941, and the forces of Germany have just begun Operation Barbarossa, as they push East to conquer Russia in what would become the costliest conflict of the war. It is up to you, commander of the Russian Red Army, to push back the Nazi invaders and free Mother Russia!

Company of Heroes 2 raises the bar of the standard in PC Real Time Strategy. Powered by the new Essence 3.0 Engine, Company of Heroes 2 features incredible graphic fidelity and cutting-edge technology. With the unprecedented new TrueSight™ system, fog of war is no longer a guessing game as unit visibility on the battlefield relies on true and proper line of sight.

The tactical and dynamic combat system that strategy gamers know and love from the original Company of Heroes returns, and now it’s bigger and better than ever. With the new Commander Abilities found in Company of Heroes 2, players will develop and utilize their abilities in intense new tactical warfare situations. Players will get to experience the up-close moment-to-moment brutality of the war on the Eastern Front through new Dynamic Battle Tactics.

One of the most intense and competitive online experiences returns with Company of Heroes 2 moulteeplayir! The vicious online combat that thousands of gamers enjoy every day with the original Company of Heroes is bigger than ever featuring competitive and co-operative modes that deliver the intense experiences that fans have come to expect.

Some of the new things coming:

"The flame effect gets even better as Matthew directs them (the flamer squad) towards the farmhouse itself. The building catches fire, the snow on its roof begins to melt, and its walls collapse as the Germans inside flee."

"This snow has depth, will spread procedurally, and will compact when rolled over by tanks." "tanks can get bogged down in deep snowdrifts, infantry can use it to flank. It provides a blanket of cover for the land's actual terrain"

"Matthew orders his Soviet soldiers to a wall at the back of the farmhouse. Like everything, the wall can be destroyed, but before the Germans have the chance, Matthew orders his men to vault over it."

After retreating his Soviet soldiers from a German MG squad pinning them... "Another machinegun is waiting for them. This one is operated by fellow Soviet soldiers. They glumly open fire, carrying out Order 227 and killing their own."

"Relic calls this 'True Sight'"..."You can only see what your soldiers see. That means that you never know what might be on the other side of the next building, beyond the treeline, or even beyond the smoke of your own smoke grenades."

But best of all... "Company of Heroes 2 isn't about different, it's about new, and it's about more."

AND "Relic have resisted the temptation to shoehorn needless modes and mini-games in where they're not welcome."

"We want more authenticity, we want more realism, we want more tactical improvements."

"Company of Heroes 2 should satisfy existing fans first and foremost."

That mod adds Russia, and does a pretty good job of balancing them and making them different to play.

Meh. Didn't like the mod myself. Too focused on adding stuff from the Soviet side, not focused enough on making them fun to play.

Just my opinion though.

As for the rest... WHOOHOOO!!!!!!

Not sure about Trusight, because it might push Company of Heroes over the boundary between game and simulator. Wouldn't be surprised if it ends up as a map option you can turn on and off, same as the blizzards.

Now the ice, on the other hand, promises to be awesome!

The Eastern Front mod allowed you to use Katyushas, but not that many of them, lol.

I'd recommend Soldiers: Heroes of World War II, but sadly, it doesn't work on Windows 7. Sad

Faces of War is the sequel of Soldiers: Heroes of World War II, and Men of War is the sequel to Faces of War. Don't know how they compare to Soldiers, and I haven't played Faces of War, but Men of War is fun (also really difficult, get the original Men of War if you want singleplayer, Assault Squad doesn't have a campaign).
