Company Of Heroes 2 is free if you grab it now

To celebrate Company Of Heroes 2's fifth birthday (its fifth birthday... six months ago?), Sega are giving Relic's World War 2 real-time strategy sequel away for free on Steam. Grab it by Monday and it's yours for keepsies. They did the same with its fourth birthday last year but it's still nice for people who didn't know CoH last year, or didn't know it well…

Go go go: Company of Heroes 2 is free today

A whistle blows. Cracking rifles in the distance. The gentle thump of boots on snow. It all wakes you from a dream about granny’s marmalade. Oh no, you think, I’m still in the war. Squads of men are assembling for an inspiring speech. “Go and kill the other men using these bullets,” says the major, to the 80-150 assembled troops. A cheer rises up. This…

Make War Not Love 4: Sega’s cross-game non-Valentine’s event brings discounts and rewards

This year it technically started on Valentine's Day but the real meat of the event kicks off yesterday and involves Company of Heroes 2, Endless Legend, Dawn of War 2…

Another Humble Bundle is offering friendly game-making tools for cheap. Following a GameMaker bundle last month, now they're back with the the Humble Clickteam Fusion 2.5 Bundle. As you might guess, the pay-what-you-want bundle is built around the game-making software Clickteam Fusion, also packing some games built with it - including Metroid 'em up Environmental Station Alpha, jumpscare 'em up Five Nights at Freddy's 3,…

British Invasion: Company Of Heroes 2 Expandaloned

In celebration of the newly-released Company of Heroes 2 [official site] standalone multiplayer expansion I've written a poem. Like all good poems it rhymes, except for the part where I use a Spanish word because I ran out of rhymes. This is what gives it an 'international' edge and is evidence that I am a citizen of the world and not a bad poet.

Company of Heroes 2: British Forces Expandalone Coming

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…

Company Of Waaagh! It’s The Humble Relic Bundle

If we seem cynical and suspicious of the many Warhammer 40,000 games we've seen in recent years, it's because we judge them against the high-water mark of Relic Entertainment's 40k games. Dawn of War with its real-time strategising, Dawn of War II with its added action-RPG-ish flair, and Space Marine with its head-stomping are as good as we've had 40k in recent years. So huzzah!…

Lovekill – CoH 2 and Total War: Rome 2 Weekend Trials

"This Valentine's Day," reads a sign in my bank's window, "give the gift of buildings and contents insurance." The cornershop plan to only serve couples maintaining physical contact. I'm facing eviction as, in lieu of rent money, my landlord demands a sworn statement that I think I'm capable of love. In this wacky world, I'm not at all surprised that Sega are marking Valentine's Day…

Expandalone Alone: Company of Heroes 2 Ardennes Assault

The last we saw of Company of Heroes 2 was multiplayer expandalone The Western Front Armies, but what about people who prefer single-player? Don't they deserve expandalones? Aren't they inherently more alone? Hold your horses and hang onto your butts, dear single players, as Relic today announced Ardennes Assault, an expandalonealone for CoH 2 seeing US Forces fending off Germany's Oberkommando West during the Battle…

Company of Heroes 2’s Western Front Expansion Out Now

Company of Heroes 2's main point of differentiation was that it took the original game's blend of bombast and squad tactics to the Eastern Front. What is it that therefore sets apart this new multiplayer-only standalone expansion, when The Western Front Armies does as its name suggests and replaces cold climes, Russians and Nazis with grass fields, Americans and yes still Nazis? The expansion came…

Warmer War: Company Of Heroes 2 – Western Front Armies

I spent most of the weekend playing Wolfenstein: The New Sequel, which left me anticipating a robotic dog assault for the first thirty seconds of the Oberkommando trailer for Company of Heroes 2 multiplayer expandalone The Western Front Armies. I'm half-convinced that there's a zombie-robot soldier actually called the Oberkommando in Wolfenstein. Of course, Company of Heroes 2 has a more serious warface than Wolfenstein,…

Company Of Heroes 2 Multiplayer Standing Alone In June

Company of Heroes 2: The Western Front Armies is a curious release. It's a multiplayer-only expandalone spin-off from Company of Heroes 2, but with two different armies--the new US Forces and Oberkommando West--and 8 new maps but still able to play on CoH 2 maps and against plain old CoH 2 players. But who's it for? Perhaps we'll answer that question come June 24, as…

Rising Storm & Company of Heroes 2 Free Trial Weekends

"Doing anything nice this weekend?" the hairdresser asks, running their hands through your luxuriant quiff. "I'm actually heading out on a whistle-stop tour of battlefields on World War 2's Eastern and Pacific fronts," you reply, leaning back to press your scalp into their supple fingers as they gasp in respect and admiration, "and I'll have the cyber razor cut thanks." Ho ho but while your…

Go West In Company of Heroes 2 Multiplayer Standalone

As summer slowly creeps up on us, what we want is sunshine and dappled shade upon green grass, not ice and snow and muted tundra. Relic understand this, and are bringing Company of Heroes 2 to pleasant western Europe. The RTS is introducing new maps and armies from the western front in a standalone multiplayer release, due to arrive this June.

Saints Row IV, COH 2 Get Free Weekend On Steam

The weekend's just over the horizon and I couldn't be happier. Well... except for one thing. I'm terribly afraid, actually, that my Friday, Saturday, and Sunday are going to be too tonally consistent. No wild mood swings. No spine-separating ups and downs. What a drag, right? So thank goodness that both Company of Heroes 2 and Saints Row IV will be free all weekend on Steam.…

Muddy Hell: Company Of Heroes 2 – Southern Fronts

The trailer for Company of Heroes 2's most recent DLC ends on a sombre and slightly surreal note. Men trudge through mud, done down by the weather as well as the enemy. They are all fashioned from the same model, all have the same animation, cookie cutter quarry in a nightmare landscape. Intentionally or not, it's a scene that uses the apparent limitations of the…

We’ve Got (A Free) Company (Of Heroes 2 Expansion Soon)

More Company of Heroes 2? Oh Relic, no, I couldn't possibly... Well, OK, if you insist. But just a couple spoonfulls and then-- *KA-WOMP* You just dropped a tank on the table. Yeah, I guess I should've seen that coming. Less expected but no less appreciated, however, are a map creation tool, two new multiplayer maps, and four new multiplayer commanders. All of it's free,…

Iced: Company Of Heroes 2 Sales Halted In Russia

Releasing a game that deals with one of a country's darkest periods is tantamount to walking on thin ice. Oh, sorry, did I say "walking"? I meant cannon-balling back-flipping onto it. In a tank. Some, then, have argued that Relic could've handled its depiction of World War II's Eastern Front with a bit more grace in Company of Heroes 2. And by "some," I mean…

Sega Sue THQ For A Million Bucks, Which Seems Odd

The reason I'm not a financial advisor, an accountant, nor even allowed access to RPS's bank accounts, is because my understanding of money is thus: "Ooh, look at the pretty colours! I like the blue ones best! I'll swap you my pinks for your blues?" So it is that I look at Eurogamer's news that Sega is suing the not-existing-any-more THQ for £630,000 with only…
