RELIC ENTERTAINMENT TAKES HOME TWO WINS AT 2nd THE ANNUAL ELAN AWARDS
THQ Inc. and Relic Entertainment announced today that Relic was the recipient of two awards, “Best PC Game” for Company of Heroes and “Outstanding Innovation in Gaming” for Company of Heroes: Opposing Fronts, at the 2nd Annual Canadian Awards for the Electronic and Animated Arts (ELAN). The Elan Awards honor Canadian industry professionals and students, in several categories spanning the Video Game, Animation and Digital Arts Entertainment Industries.
These awards join the Company of Heroes’ long list of accolades, which include “Best PC Game”, “Game of the Year”, and “Best Strategy Game” awards from several leading game publications worldwide. Company of Heroes: Opposing Fronts, a stand alone companion product to the highly-rated Company of Heroes, won for “Outstanding Innovation in Gaming”. One of only two awards open to worldwide competition, the innovation award is bestowed upon a game that advances game development technically or creatively, or by establishing an entirely new genre.
"We are very proud to have been recognized by the Elan's for the hard work and craftsmanship our teams put into the Company of Heroes and Company of Heroes: Opposing Fronts titles," said Tarrnie Williams, General Manager of Relic Entertainment. “We continue our focus of innovating and expanding upon the RTS genre through original and licensed games, to produce more great games in the future.”
