Company of Heroes 2: British Forces Expandalone Coming

Send in Tommy

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.

The British Forces pack will represent we Lobsterbacks with 15 units and six commanders, and also bring eight new multiplayer maps.

Folks who buy British Forces will be able to play as Tommy and chums in multiplayer, including against players who own other versions of the game and on maps not included with this expandalone.

It'll launch alongside "a major design upgrade" for all CoH 2 games, which Sega and Relic say "will greatly improve the overall balance of all five factions featured in Company of Heroes 2. The game also features animation and visual improvements to most infantry units in the game, which further increase the authenticity of Company of Heroes 2." Good-o!

Sega will offer a 20% discount on British Forces to folks who own any Company of Heroes game, but only if they pre-order. You know what we say about pre-ordering round here.
