Today, THQ and Relic are proud to announce the long-awaited sequel to Company of Heroes, the highest rated strategy game of all-time. Putting players in charge of the Soviet Red Army, Company of Heroes 2 will introduce players to the harsh realities of war on the Eastern Front.

 

Company of Heroes 2 is scheduled to be available for PC in early 2013. Keep checking back for more information.

 

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 multiplayer! 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.

This is the only screenshot they've released, but god damn is it impressive looking! The graphics, the atmosphere, everything. I'm already totally psyched for this game, even though it won't be out until 2013. I still play the living hell out of the first one; it's an underrated classic. Anyone who's interested in good real-time strategy games or even just World War II games, definitely check out the first Company of Heroes. It runs pretty cheap on Steam and it's well worth it's value.

Glad to see some people around here are interested in this. For a second I thought this might get swept under the rug, since there's so many good games on the horizon as it is.

 

Germans vs. Russians, man this will be epic. Sucks that there probably won't be any American/British faction, but they pretty much covered them enough in the first game. It wouldn't make sense to see them on the Eastern Front. Germany still has a lot of vehicles and features to make for new content in this game, and Russia is a completely new frontier to explore militarily. I'm hoping to see the Panzer III and T-34 tanks. Oh, and there has to be molotov cocktails available for some Russian troops.

 

Now excuse me, I'm gonna fire up CoH and bang out a few matches in the Hochwald Gap. Those ranks aren't going to earn themselves...

I never got into modding CoH. Tried downloading some custom maps a couple times but it never worked out for me. confused.gif

Looks much better. The graphics actually seem from an FPS game. The fire is more realistic aswell, I just hope the flamethrower effect isn't as weird as in the first one.

I have to say, they did a brilliant job on this one.
