Code red. To every eager foot soldier - SEGA has now stepped forth to officially signal the much-awaited fielding of real-time strategy game Company of Heroes 2, so to those of you who managed to keep their cool in anticipation of the sequel can now fully warm up to the action on offer and have a blast with this title.
In the world’s darkest hour you are a commander of the Soviet Red Army, entrenched in brutal frontline warfare to free Mother Russia from the Enemy invaders.
It is 1941 and the beginning of what will become the bloodiest conflict of World War II resulting in more than 14 million military casualties.
Witness the struggles of the Red Army from near defeat through their incredible triumph over Germany in the most challenging and costly theater of the war, the Eastern Front.
Your military tactics hold the power to tip the very balance of this conflict. Engage in tactical combat that will define you as a military leader and wield the might of the Soviet Empire as you smash your way to Berlin.
The Motherland is Calling!
Relic Entertainment's Company of Heroes 2 and a veritable boatload of accompanying DLC packs and period faction Skins can now be purchased alone or bundled via the game's Steam page.
But, in the true spirit of the forces you'll command, it stops not here, as conveyed in the press release:
In addition to the plethora of content available at launch, Relic has committed to an extensive ongoing post-launch support effort offering: balance updates, bug and performance fixes and free multiplayer maps, in addition to premium content, post launch.
Greg Wilson, Producer of Company of Heroes 2, commented, "We are immensely proud of the game but for us the launch is just the start. Our loyal player base will be rewarded with ongoing updates and content to keep them enjoying Company of Heroes 2 a long time after the game ships."
May it indeed be so and not one step back!
