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:


Quote


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!

Company of Heroes 2: Ardennes Assault; an all new standalone single-player expansion (...)

(...) inspired by the conflict that Winston Churchill once described as "undoubtedly the greatest American battle of the war" – the Battle of the Bulge. The new campaign content will see players take control of the US Forces in this pivotal World War II battle in the densely forested, strategically critical Ardennes region of Western Europe. They will face huge tactical and navigational challenges as they strive to repel a surprise attack from the relentless German Oberkommando West forces in 18 brand new, single-player scenarios.

Company of Heroes 2: Ardennes Assault will feature three entirely new Companies to choose from within the US Forces, each with their own unique Officers and play-style. Players will see their decisions and actions reflected across the Ardennes landscape in this dynamic new single-player campaign. Player choices are crucial as every decision will not only impact the story but also their Company with upgrades and Veterancy carrying over from mission to mission. With limited soldiers under your command, you must manage their lives and well-being effectively or risk losing that Company for good. Will you lead your Company valiantly and emerge as heroes?

::

As per the official announcement here, the game is to be released come November 18th.
