Critically acclaimed RTS game Company of Heroes™ 2 will undergo a free update called ‘Turning Point,’ on November 12, 2013. This update will include a host of free content, including items created by and for the game’s passionate community.
‘Turning Point’ includes:
· World Builder
This highly requested community feature enables players to design and share their own epic multiplayer maps for Company of Heroes 2
· Two New Multiplayer Maps
The game’s multiplayer roster is being bolstered with two additional multiplayer maps, the industrial ‘Rails and Metal’ and the urban ‘Lazur Factory’
· Four New Multiplayer Commanders
Four new Commanders, two per faction, are being introduced into the game’s multiplayer and skirmish modes. One Commander from each faction was designed by members of the Company of Heroes 2 community during a visit to Relic this summer and will be available via registration atwww.companyofheroes.com
With an updated engine the second installment of the World War 2 RTS will shift its emphasis from the Western to the Eastern front. In the wastelands of the USSR you will not only have to deal with enemy troops but an altogether different foe will always be lurking, The Weather. Hopefully this mechanic will create extra pressure on players and give the game an even deeper strategic feel.
One thing is for sure the game looks impressive from my time with it at Eurogamer 2012 and other exposures it looks to build upon the success of the originaland that should be the recipe for a great title.
So the question is in the great Patriotic war which side will you take?
We have included a array of screenshots to try to wet your appetite for the game.
