Focusing on the eastern front was a novelty for Company of Heroes 2 [official site], shifting away from the Brits and Yanks – who are hardly underrepresented in WW2 games – to the Red Army and their own fight with the Axis forces. You can’t keep Brits out for long, though. They get everywhere. Sooner or later, they’ll pop up and demand “Oi Ivan, gizza Bacardi Breezer, two WKD Blue, and oh yeah Sharon’s been sick in your borscht pot.”
Company of Heroes 2: The British Forces will bring us rabble into the fray on September 3rd. Costing £9.99, it’ll be another standalone multiplayer expansion, not requiring the base game. A big update for all versions of CoH 2 is coming too.
