Company of Heroes 2 invades PC in 2013
THQ today announced Company of Heroes 2, a sequel to 2006's critically acclaimed strategy game.
"As a true sequel, this game moves the battle away from the common Western Front focus of World War II and refocuses on some of history's most brutal and devastating conflicts on the Eastern Front, challenging players to take command of the iconic Red Army and repel the Nazi invaders from the very gates of Moscow," the game's description read.
Company of Heroes 2 uses the Essence 3.0 Engine, offering new technological advancements to the strategy genre. The game will feature new Dynamic Battle Tactics, increased graphical fidelity, and new environmental destruction.
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," said Relic Entertainment producer Greg Wilson.
Expect Company of Heroes 2 to arrive in early 2013.
