“The greatest competitive RTS is getting even better”, claims THQ, in a note accompanying this first-look multiplayer trailer for Company of Heroes 2. We’re promised new maps, new features, new game modes, and are asked: Are you ready to take on the Eastern Front, in a little online combat?
This is, of course, the followup to the original Company of Heroes, which hit shelves in 2006 and has been heralded as a stand-out of the genre. It is currently sitting pretty with a 93% Metascore (based on 55 reviews), and 93%+ on Gamerankings, making it the site’s highest-rated strategy title.
All eyes are on the upcoming sequel, headed to PC in March 2013 – will Company of Heroes 2 live up to the hype?
