The lights are on
THQ confirmed it will release the sequel to Company of Heroes in early 2013 for PC. The game centers on the conflicts on the Eastern Front in World War II where players command the Red Army.
“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 Greg Wilson, producer at Relic Entertainment.
Here's a quick rundown of the story:
It is 1941 and the beginning of what will become the most brutal conflict of World War II, as Germany launches a full-scale invasion of the frozen tundra of the Soviet Union which would result in over 14 million military casualties. Take command of the iconic Soviet Red Army in brutal frontline warfare to free Mother Russia from the invading Nazis.
Expect to hear more about Company of Heroes 2 at E3 next month.
