Company of Heroes 2 Confirmed, First Details Emerge
Yesterday the Internet asploded when Redditers discovered proof in the upcoming issue of PC Gamer’s UK edition. That’s a big deal: Company of Heroes was highly acclaimed when it dropped, but it’s been 6 years. We’ve seen something like 400 Call of Duty games in the intervening years. So we’re rightfully excited.
Alas. PC Gamer is playing things close to the vest until the issue comes out. However, they have teased some of the details from their article in a post earlier. In short, expect World War 2, and some of the bleakest moments from the eastern front:
It’s set on the Russian front. You control the Soviets in their fight to repel the invading Nazi force.
Snow plays a major part on the battlefield.
The cover system has been revamped.
The game is due out 2013.
I’m definitely excited about this one everyone. What about you? Is this been there/done that territory, or can they make the Russian campaign fresh again? Let us know in comments.
