With Company of Heroes 2 set for release on June 25th, I wanted to make sure you got a chance to see the Company of Heroes 2: Above the Battlefield trailer released last month. In it, you’ll get a quick peek into the Theatre of War mode, where you’ll fight in World War II’s Eastern Front’s most famous battles as either the Soviet Red Army (the Russians) or the Germans — the two armies Company of Heroes 2 focuses on.
In the Theatre of War mode, both the Soviet Red Army and the Germans have nine missions each to complete, with more being added soon after the game releases. Each mission is historically-accurate with detailed maps drawn from that period in history.
Personally, with or without the Company of Heroes 2: Above the Battlefield trailer (although with it, I must admit I love the look of the game even more), I couldn’t be more excited for June 25th to roll around. In fact, it’s taken a long time for the second game in the series to be released, but from what I’m seeing so far it’s looking like the wait was worth it.
