War's never been so cheap.

The Latest Humble Bundle Offers A Whole Big Thing Of Company Of Heroes

War used to be so expensive.  Back in the day, you had your horses and your swords, each of which were worth upwards of twenty gold coins.  Then, you had your thousand-dollar artillery shells and landmines.  Finally, countries decided they just couldn't get by without dropping a couple million bones on stealth bombers.  It's hard to believe how cheap things are these now in comparison.  For instance, if you were to log onto the Humble Bundle website sometime in the next twelve days, you could basically buy the entirety of World War 2 for ten bucks.

New trailer and E3 demo available to all

Company of Heroes 2 New Multiplayer Trailer and Campaign Demo for Play

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.

Get ready to take command of your soldiers with the new CoH2 trailer

Company of Heroes 2 Storms in with a New Trailer

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.

Company of Heroes 2 Adds Co-Op Gameplay

Last year during PAX Prime we went hands on with Company of Heroes 2, the latest RTS from developer Relic - which is now owned by Sega. Right away we could tell the game was itching for official co-op support, but the development team was being coy as to whether or not it would be featured. Today the game has gotten a brand new mode in addition to the existing campaign and competitive modes called Theater of War - and it's designed around co-op play.

Putting the REAL in Real-Time Strategy

PAX 2012: Company of Heroes 2 Hands on Impressions

There's only one Company of Heroes game (technically an expansion) that had co-op, and that's Company of Heroes: Tales of Valor.  But given the opportunity to see Company of Heroes 2 at PAX I had to jump at the chance.  I'm a huge fan of the series which has been developed by Relic, creators of Homeworld, Dawn of War 2, and many other amazing real time strategy games.
