Company of Heroes® 2 Invades the Eastern Front
Sequel to Critically Acclaimed Strategy Game Coming to PC in 2013
AGOURA HILLS, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--THQ Inc. (NASDAQ: THQI) today announced that a sequel to its critically acclaimed strategy game Company of Heroes® is scheduled to be taking gamers to the frozen frontlines of war in Russia in early 2013.
As a true sequel, this game moves the battle away from the common Western Front focus of World War II and refocuses on some of history’s most brutal and devastating conflicts on the Eastern Front, challenging players to take command of the iconic Red Army and repel the Nazi invaders from the very gates of Moscow.
Company of Heroes 2 utilizes Relic® Entertainment’s state of the art proprietary Essence 3.0 EngineTM to bring new technological advancements to the strategy genre in the form of innovative Dynamic Battle Tactics, increased graphical fidelity and new environmental destruction, ultimately putting the player in control with new Commander Abilities.
Greg Wilson, Producer at Relic Entertainment commented, “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.”
Danny Bilson, Executive Vice President of Core Games commented, “We are excited to announce a sequel to one of THQ’s best loved properties. Company of Heroes 2 will deliver an amazing strategy experience along with a strong post-launch digital content plan that enhances and expands the product’s lifecycle.”

PtD on PC was, yes, more barren, but it too had less but more expert players (less low level helpers) and i almost didn't encounter cheaters. 50/50 to undead/hollow playtrough to give a insight (2 Hours ago)
@digi_matrix: never had problems on 360 DS community, and it was fairly large and i encountered low invaders and great unknown sunbros. i played it ~6 months after release. (2 Hours ago)
@digi_matrix: it's From... they deliver bad performing game, from dark souls to Armored Core, but now they seem keen on keeping good framerate at great costs. (2 Hours ago)
Well, shit didn't realise Dark Souls 2 had a graphics downgrade. Or PC version was shown before. Or something. So confusing: [url] (6 Hours ago)
@nostradamus: thanks for the technical comparison info, might just go with 360 then now. (7 Hours ago)
@Loakum: the game will support 1080p/60fps from launch. durante "fix" doesn't seem to be needed right now. One month away is the part that is worse. (11 Hours ago)
