Back to the Western Front in Company of Heroes 2 DLC
Boogey man is on the move once again.
Relic Games tells Eurogamer that Company of Heroes 2: The Western Front Armies is the upcoming standalone multiplayer DLC bundle for the WWII strategy game. It features eight new maps and two new (old) factions: the US and the German Oberkommando.
The core Company of Heroes 2 game is not required for The Western Front Armies, Relic says, and even if you don’t own the full game, you’ll be able to play with and against CoH 2′s Eastern Front factions in competitive multiplayer and co-op modes.
CoH2: The Western Front Armies will offer the US and the Oberkommando West in two different $13 packages or in one single $20 bundle. It’s penciled in for launch this June.
As a gamer who lists the original Company of Heroes among my all-time favorites, I’m thrilled. CoH2 was okay, but I honestly don’t enjoy playing as the Russian faction. Something about throwing conscripts into the ravenous maw of the German army just feels wrong. Can’t wait to get Boogey man back in action.
