Real Time Strategy games are a specialty for game developers and publishers like THQ. Relic Entertainment’s Company of Heroes was a fan favorite that released back in 2006. The very first game to come out with the Games For Windows Live title on the cover. After the first game, Company Of Heroes became a popular strategy game with its war depiction and innovative game mechanics.
The popularity of the first game gave rise to the development and release of the sequel called Company Of Heroes 2. The current version showcased here is Company Of Heroes 2. The product is designed for PCs with compatible system requirements.
Synopsis and Features:
Relic Entertainment is the game developer for Company Of Heroes and all its available versions. Their proprietary software and game engine is called the Essence 3.0 which was developed keeping in mind the technological advancements in gaming that will take place in the near future. The game is set to release in the early months of 2013.
New factions like the Soviet Red Army are available in Company Of Heroes 2 , and will take you through various stages that deal with the Eastern European Front in the campaign. Ranging from the infamous Operation Barbarossa to the iconic Battle of Berlin, Company Of Heroes takes you through the ages in history that have made an indelible mark on humanity and its outlook on war in general. Being built on Relic Entertainment’s own Essence 3.0 game engine, COH or Company Of Heroes will be able to showcase the advances in the game and its overall gameplay. One of the major improvements in the second game is the Line of Sight technology, also known as True Sight.
True Sight emulates troop movement and visibility on the battlefield like how real life troops would. Depending on the weather conditions and the kinds of troops you use, True Sight will emulate their line of sight accordingly. Much like in real life where visibility range gets enhanced or hampered according to the overall environment and the conditions prevailing about the field, True Sight will either reduce or increase the visibility ranges of troops to suit the conditions on the field.
You start off by commanding the Russian Red Army during the World War II campaign. During humanity’s darkest hour, you take command of the troops of the Soviet Army already engaged in a brutal battle on the frontlines in order to free Russia from the hands of the vile Nazi invaders. In the year 1941, the conflict took a bloody turn, resulting in an unprecedented fourteen million deaths in the military factions alone. Civilian deaths were unaccounted for as their numbers were also hovering around the tens of thousands.
During the campaign it is your job to bring the Red Army to a grand victory from a near defeat. A triumphant victory over Germany will prove a costly and challenging task to accomplish considering that the Nazi army were the most advanced at the time. However, with sheer determination and pure grit you will be able to accomplish this herculean task. Losing the war is not an option.
Company Of Heroes 2 is the much awaited sequel to the highest rated Strategy Game of 2006 with an innovative warfare experience till date. Cutting edge graphics thanks to the Essence 3.0 game engine is a reality on COH 2. True Sight system present within the game will make you change your war strategy and battle tactics with every new environment you encounter.
