Company of Heroes - Andy_RE

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 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!

Hello everyone,

As some of you may have noticed, we have updated the names of the two versions of COH1 that coexist on Steam:

Going forward, the "Company of Heroes" app is the one you should use if you want to play online and enjoy the Steam Workshop maps. Store pages descriptions were also tweaked accordingly for clarity - but it took us a couple of days. Sorry about that. Try clearing your browser cache if you don't see them now, however.

We did not want to remove the Legacy Edition altogether because:
  • some of you guys are still playing it, for various reasons (including old mods)
  • COH1 total conversion pages are tied to it in the Steam back-end, and we can't change that
  • most of the reviews for COH1 are tied to it in the Steam back-end, and we can't change that / transfer them to the newest app
Obviously, anyone buying the Legacy Edition still automatically gets access to the latest version of the game as well in their library ("Company of Heroes", formerly "New Steam Version")! Sorry for the late post in this Community Hub; the last couple of weeks were a bit busy.

See you on the battlefield.

It's crazy to think Company of Heroes is more than 11 years old!

A big thanks goes out to our dedicated COH community, who keep the game going strong even after all this time.

If you're one of those loyal Company of Heroes fans, why not sign up for the 1v1 Anniversary Tournament? The tourney takes place on Sat 21st Oct. It should be loads of fun, and it sure will be interesting to see which vets come out on top come game time!

Top class community content and modding have played a major part in the longevity of the original Company of Heroes. And we want to help that continue! That's why we have just updated the game with Steam Workshop capabilities and an in-game Workshop hub. This means you can now play, share, and manage your subscriptions to custom scenarios without exiting the game, or manually installing files!

What's more, the incredible Eastern Front mod for Company of Heroes is now available on Steam. Get ready to wage war with the original Company of Heroes 2 factions, the Soviet Army and the German Ostheer, in the original game!

Additionally, for all you collectors out there, you'll be excited to hear that this update also sees the introduction of Steam Trading Cards.

Alongside these updates, we're running a massive Steam sale until 10 AM PDT on June 5th! All Company of Heroes and Company of Heroes 2 games and expansions will be 75% off, and all Company of Heroes 2 paid DLC will be 66% off.

Starting today and running until Sunday January 19th all Steam members will be able to play <em>Company of Heroes 2</em> for free. No conditions, no catches, it’s the full Company of Heroes 2 experience and it’s a click away for all Steam members. Players will be able to experience the full single-player campaign, the single player and co-op Theater of War experience in Operation Barbarossa and of course the <em>CoH2</em> multiplayer.

Veterans of <em>CoH2</em> will not only have new allies and enemies to faceoff with in multiplayer this weekend, but as an additional bonus we are unlocking all of the game’s paid DLC commanders for four days of play. So if there’s been a Commander you’ve wanted to try on the battlefield then this is your chance.

In order to keep the original <em>Company of Heroes</em> online we had to move from the servers that the game was launched on, to a new setup on Valve's Steamworks servers. While we were glad that we were able to keep the original game online, the move meant that we lost a number of features that we had managed to build into the game over the years.

Since the move we have been working hard alongside the team at Smoking Gun Interactive, a Vancouver based studio featuring many of the original team that worked on <em>CoH</em>, to restore the game's features.

Earlier this month we ran an<a title="Company of Heroes Beta" href=""> open beta</a> for players to test the latest version of the game. Now thanks to the beta testers' feedback we have launched the latest update to <a href=""><em>Company of Heroes</em></a>.

Everyone at Relic would like to thank the fantastic fans who have helped us keep <em>Company of Heroes</em> alive. Your passion for the game, and your help with this latest update, have been invaluable to us.

We look forward to many more years of seeing you on the field of battle.
