If you're interested in supporting a few charities, the latest Bundle is celebrating the 10th anniversary of the Company of Heroes franchise by offering both main entries (Company of Heroes and Company of Heroes 2) plus a slew of extra content for a meager ten dollars.  Honestly, why wouldn't you be?  Charities are pretty cool, and you'd be hard-pressed to find a pair of better RTS games from the last few years.

Humble Sega Strategy Bundle Delivers a Legion or Two of Co-OpJohn Bardinelli

At the most basic tier of $1 or more, the Humble Sega Strategy Bundle offers Company of Heroes Complete Edition, Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War - Master Collection, Medieval II: Total War Collection, Rome: Total War Collection, and the SEGA Genesis/Megadrive Strategy Pack, which features Shining Force 1 and 2, Gain Ground, and Columns. Not a lot of co-op here, so we'll move up to the "pay more than the average" tier to get our fix.

Wins what? Free DLC! All you have to do is rally your fellow fans together and log tons of hours on any of the three games listed above. The game with the most hours after Feb 20 gets the freebie, plain and simple. All titles have some co-op play, but we're a touch partial to Dawn of War 2, as you can see in our Dawn of War 2 Co-Op Review.

Fortunately for CoH2 fans, however, the DLC seems to pack quite a content punch. In addition to a single-player battle based on the Case Blue German campaign, the pack also contains two new solo challenges, two AI battles, and a brand new co-op scenario entitled Assault on Voronezh. A free map update was also applied today to CoH2, which introduces two new multiplayer maps (Rostov and Kharkov).

Approaching World War II from a different perspective, Company of Heroes 2 tells the tale of the Soviet Union as they fought to turn the tide against the Wermacht. While the story is suspect, the core gameplay is extremely rewarding. There is a great deal of content present, with a lengthy campaign, a war theatre, and a competitive online community. Virtually everything you do counts towards your overall level, with unlockable rewards being given along the way. Co-op is also quite rewarding.

If you've been playing the Company of Heroes 2 open beta on Steam, you may have noticed the counter for days left suddenly changed from one to six the other day. That wasn't some glitch in the Matrix, but rather Relic extending the open beta almost up until the game launches on June 25th.

E3 2013 has wrapped and the long, hot summer of anticipation has begun. We were granted access to next-gen consoles and THE GAMES OF TOMORROW. Wielding our co-op gaming expertise, we have judged the offerings of industry titans and pugnacious indies.

To qualify, the game had to have be playable cooperatively. That’s it. These are the co-op games to watch in the months to come. These are the titles that made an impression in a sea of digital escapism. These are our Co-Optimus E3 2013 Game of Show Nominees! Oh, and one standout winner.

Locke and I sat down with a refined version of the beta exclusive to E3 and took it took it to the computer before chatting with the game's lead artist.

Waaland

There is no denying that there is a shortage of quality RTS games in the gaming scene. Particularly ones that deal with something other than aliens in space. Company of Heroes is one such series that breaks that tradition, opting for historic tanks and a World War II setting rather than the typical sci-fi fair. The latest from Relic, Company of Heroes 2 is shaping up to be quite a solid game. Fortunately, we have all had the opportunity to play for it a bit, because the game has been in a free open beta. The best part about the beta is that your stats for multiplayer will carry over to the full version of the game.

Many of us have been waiting very patiently for Company of Heroes 2. The original Company of Heroes was a smashing success, and a very well received military RTS.

Company of Heroes 2 is the sequel to the much beloved RTS Company of Heroes. Since the first game was so highly regarded, no one disputes the fact that Company of Heroes 2 has some major commando boots to fill. Is it up to the task? According to our own Nick and Locke, things were looking extremely promising when they went hands-on with the game at PAX Prime 2012. The good news continued when a new mode was announced for the game called Theater of War which has 9 missions per faction that can be played cooperatively. Quite a quantitative improvement over the lonely cooperative mission of Company of Heroes: Tales of Valor.
