‘Company of Heroes 2′ gameplay trailer

Company-of-Heroes-2-4

After much deliberation, speculation, and hoping, Company of Heroes 2 finally entered development, and by none other than Relic, the minds behind the original. Fast-forward a few months and we’ve got a sharp-looking trailer filled with gamplay for hungry strategists. Check it out at the bottom of the story.

Company of Heroes 2 is a real-time strategy game focused on resource and territory management. If it retains gameplay from the original game, there will be a focus on micromanaging personnel and technology to dominate the battlefield. The sequel will add the Soviets as a faction and will utilize an enging called Essence 3.0, which will provide for greater detail, stronger AI and destructible environments. Post-launch DLC is planned.
