SEGA and Relic Entertainment have announced today that Company of Heroes™ 2: The British Forces is out now for PC Digital Download on Steam and via the online SEGA Store priced at $12.99/£9.99/€12.99. The standalone multiplayer expansion for Company of Heroes 2 features the British Forces as an all-new faction, including 15 new units, up to six new commanders (three in the base game and three via the War Spoils loot dropping system) and a total of eight new multiplayer maps.
The British Forces adds a new dynamic to the Company of Heroes 2 battlefield by giving players the ability to combine powerful, coordinated attacks across two distinct combat styles – the ‘Hammer’, an aggressive, mobile approach; or the ‘Anvil’, a deliberate but highly potent defensive approach. With the addition of the British army, Company of Heroes 2 is one of the most comprehensive World War II RTS games available, with a thriving online community and over 10,000,000 online matches played since launch.
“We’re delighted to be able to launch Company of Heroes 2: The British Forces for our existing fan base and as an entry point for new players,” said Greg Wilson, Producer on Company of Heroes 2: The British Forces. “This standalone release serves as a great addition to the existing factions in Company of Heroes 2 and comes after 6 months of thorough improvements to the base game that have been warmly received by the community – from a comprehensive balance overhaul to new modding tools, a dedicated modding wiki and an in-game modding hub and in-game store to improve content discovery .”
