Company of Heroes 2 Brings Extreme Cold to the RTS

Company of Heroes was renowned for its attention to detail and its visceral take on the World War Two era. Sure it was an real-time strategy game which involved generals sending hundreds of soldiers to their deaths during any given mission, yet the acclaimed release still had an authenticity which other games lacked – due specifically to its in-depth cover mechanic. Crazy to think that cover was a new fangled gameplay device back when this series began in 2006, but trust us it really was!

In Company of Heroes 2 Relic is taking that evolution to the next level with a new innovation they've lovingly dubbed, 'ColdTech'. (Company of Heroes 2, PC)

Wow, this seems to add a new level of complexity to the already popular RTS series. I am intrigued to see how this affects the overall strategy.

I was aware of CoH for awhile but i never actually took a look or tried it till recently. Man i have to say i regret waiting this long, its awesome. I love WWII era and i love RTS and its a perfect combination (for me) of the two. I really wish i got into it sooner so i cannot wait for the 2nd because im going to jump into it as soon as possible.

CoH really added a lot to the RTS genre. SC2 is still king, but I cannot wait for CoH2

When you start getting a little tired of the vanilla game, check out the Blitzkrieg mod for CoH. It adds a lot to the game and makes for some great skirmish battles.
