THQ have announced Company of Heroes 2, which is a sequel to their successful original strategy game and will be taking gamers to the frozen frontlines of war in Russian on PC in early 2013.
The game comes as a true sequel and moves the battle away from the common Western Front focus of World War II and focuses on some of history’s more brutal and devastating battles that happened on the Eastern Front. The game will challenge players to take command of the iconic Red Army and battle away the Nazi invaders from the gates of Moscow.
The game also utilizes Relic Entertainment’s Essence 3.0 Engine in order to bring new, advanced technological advancements to the strategy genre. This includes Dynamic Battle Tactics, increased graphical fidelity and new environmental destruction which puts the player in control with new Commander Abilities.
Greg Wilson, Producer at Relic Entertainment stated the following:
“Company of Heroes 2 is a true successor, introducing a new front, new protagonists and new technology while retaining the unique mix of strategic gameplay and competitive multiplayer that made the original Company of Heroes such a success.”
Danny Bilson, Executive Vice President of Core Games also added:
“We are excited to announce a sequel to one of THQ’s best loved properties. Company of Heroes 2 will deliver an amazing strategy experience along with a strong post-launch digital content plan that enhances and expands the product’s lifecycle.”
