Company of Heroes 2 Game Giveaway, Sale and Tourney Finals



Attention Relic fans!

Company of Heroes 2 turned five years old earlier this year! To celebrate, we're looking to end this special year with a fantastic week of activity for the game.

Starting from today, and running until December 10th at 6PM GMT/ 10AM PST, players who have not yet joined the ranks of the Company of Heroes 2 faithful will be able to get the game free on STEAM! This isn't just a free weekend; players will be able to add the game to their library permanently if they redeem the game within this window! Already own COH2? Recruit some friends, and put them through basic training. There's strength in numbers!

Along with the Game Giveaway, all major COH2 DLC is 75% off for this period! It's a perfect time to pick up that single player campaign or multiplayer army you've had your eye on.

Check it out here.

This weekend will also see the finals of the biggest 2v2 tournament in COH2 history: The Anniversary Classic. The eight best teams in the world have made it to this final stage, and are going to be battling out for over $20,000 US in prizing!

Casting legends A_E and Stormless will be covering the action from a studio in Manchester, and fans can watch the mayhem unfold live on Twitch at https://www.twitch.tv/relicentertainment. Keep an eye on the Company of Heroes 2 Twitter account for more details!

Finally, in case all of that wasn't enough, COH2 players can look forward to a seriously juicy content update during the week of December 10th with our Commander Revamp Update.

Together with our invested players and community balance team, we gave 10 underdog commanders a serious overhaul! Major props to everyone involved! Additionally, as part of this patch, players will also be able to enjoy an updated USF Tech System, and some general quality of life balance changes.

Expect new strategies, new abilities, and even a few new units in what's going to be an incredible update for the game.

Happy five years and see you on the field,

The Company of Heroes team!

“It's beautiful, though that's entirely the wrong word. This is a war game, so the word should be "visceral" or something. Models are hugely detailed for an RTS, physics implemented impressively and so on. But relevantly, it's a functional sort of beauty (or - er - viscerality).”
10/10 – Eurogamer

“Company of Heroes should be on the must-play list of every RTS fanatic out there, even those tired of WWII settings. It's just that good.”
9.6/10 – PC Gamer

“The transformation from a idyllic little town into a heap of crushed buildings and burned out husks of vehicles can be shocking. Seeing and hearing major explosions that cause bodies (and bits of bodies) to fly across the screen along with rubble from a nearby building simply puts you more into the battle than any RTS in memory.”
9.4/10 – IGN

DESCRIPTION

Delivering a visceral WWII gaming experience, Company of Heroes redefines real time strategy gaming by bringing the sacrifice of heroic soldiers, war-ravaged environments, and dynamic battlefields to life. Beginning with the D-Day Invasion of Normandy, players lead squads of Allied soldiers into battle against the German war machine through some of the most pivotal battles of WWII. Through a rich single player campaign, players experience the cinematic intensity and bravery of ordinary soldiers thrust into extraordinary events.

  • A Cinematic Single Player Experience that captures the turmoil of WWII as never before.
  • Advanced squad AI brings your soldiers to life as they interact with the changing environment, take cover, and execute advanced squad tactics to eliminate all enemy opposition.
  • Stunning Visuals - Relic's next generation cutting-edge engine provides graphic quality and a physics driven world that is unprecedented in an RTS.
  • Environmental Strategy - Real-time physics and a completely destructible environment guarantee no two battles ever play out in the same way. Destroy anything and re-shape the battlefield! Use buildings and terrain to your advantage, or deny them to the enemy.
  • 2-8 Player Multiplayer Competition via LAN or Internet - Go online with friends and join the ultimate battle of Axis versus Allies.
