Good Game: Company of Heroes 2 (PC)

A Good Game a day for the rest of time perhaps?

Today it’s Company of Heroes 2 a 2013 real-time strategy video game developed by Relic Entertainment and published by Sega for Microsoft Windows (PC). It is the sequel to the critically acclaimed 2006 game Company of Heroes.

As with the original Company of Heroes, the game is set in World War II but with the focus on Russia. The game’s story focuses on the Eastern Front campaign as narrated through flashbacks by Lev Abramovich Isakovich, a Soviet Army lieutenant locked up at a gulag in Siberia in 1952. Colonel Churkin, his old commanding officer shows him a book and interrogates him about his experiences during the war, including the Battle of Stalingrad, skirmishes outside of Moscow, combat in the outskirts of Leningrad, fighting in Poland, up to the Fall of the Reichstag.

Company of Heroes 2 runs on Relic Entertainment’s proprietary Essence 3.0 game engine. In January 2013, Sega acquired Relic Entertainment and along with it the Company of Heroes intellectual property from THQ.
