Company of Heroes: Tales of Valor Now Live and Discounted on Impulse

Stardock announced that THQ’s Company of Heroes: Tales of Valor is now live on Stardock’s digital distribution platform Impulse for a discounted price of $27.99 in North America.

Company of Heroes: Tales of Valor is the standalone expansion to the Game of the Year winner and highest rated real-time strategy franchise Company of Heroes. Featuring new campaigns to overcome, units to command, and battlefields to conquer, Company of Heroes: Tales of Valor delivers evolved gameplay mechanics and three episodic adventures including nine new missions, and new abilities to master.

Tales of Valor contains three campaigns based on historical events from World War II. These three campaigns each tell a unique and intimate tale that is translated into gripping tactical combat.

Tiger Ace is the first of the three campaigns, telling the story of The Battle of Villers Bocage over the course of three scenarios. The battle takes place in France 1944, as Allied forces stream ashore from the beaches. A British armored column threatens to break through a gap in the German lines, but a fearsome Tiger Tank commanded by a veteran crew races forward to engage them in the town the battle was named after, Villers Bocage. Take Direct Control of your lone Tiger, invest command points in your tank crew to unlock new abilities, fight to keep your crew alive and your unit from being out flanked.

Additionally for fans of multiplayer, three new multiplayer modes called Operations have been created for Tales of Valor. Operations are multiplayer scenarios that offer players new ways to battle against or with each other. Tales of Valor also includes a batch of new maps for multiplayer or skirmish games. Operation Stonewall is one of the new multiplayer modes for Tales of Valor. It throws up to four players into a scenario where they defend a town against an all out attack by an overwhelming AI opponent. You'll have to use everything at your disposal to try and hold out.

With Impulse, users purchase their game and can then immediately download and install the game through the Impulse client which seamlessly manages updates, community features and more. Games become part of that user’s account such that when a user purchase a new machine, a user can simply re-download the Impulse client, logon to their account and re-download all their purchases, even years into the future.
