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.

@Sath: so do i. and the story bit doesn't make much sense. but it does show it wasn't a case of the actor not willing to full bald. (22 minutes ago)
Well i havent seen it yet so i assumed he did lol but if you say theres a stoy behind it then cool. I still prefer full on shaved head look though. (1 Hour ago)
@Sath: it's not even so much that he half assed it. and once you see it you'll understand what i mean. it was obviously a choice based on the story. (1 Hour ago)
But as a movie, i have yet to see it, i know its not going to be a Hitman movie, but as you said, if action is good and entertaining, i will deal with it lol I lost hope for proper game-movies. (2 Hours ago)
