Company of Heroes 2 mobilizes The Western Front Armies this summer
We're heading back to the Western Front in the latest multiplayer content scheduled to release for Company of Heroes 2 in June!
Company of Heroes 2: The Western Front Armies will sell for $19.99 and will offer mmo commanders the chance to revisit the tumultuous Western Front which was the setting for the original Company of Heroes game. It's as much as a nostalgia trip as a new challenge as developers have tweaked it with multiplayer tactics in mind.
This new multiplayer content pack introduces two content paths -- one involving the US Forces and the other featuring the German Oberkommando West. Both will offer tactical military challenges for even the most battle-hardened strategy rpg veterans.
Across eight new multiplayer maps, players will be able to access new infantry, team weapons, vehicles, abilities and upgrades that should keep combat especially interesting.
Players who don't purchase the Company of Heroes 2 The Western Front Armies multiplayer pack will still have plenty to do when the update hits this summer.
There will be 31 maps available as free content to all Company of Heroes 2 fans via the auto-match multiplayer mode.
Developers said the decision to revisit the Western Front was driven by fan requests, but this time updated with new tactical options for a riveting multiplayer battle experience.
