'Company of Heroes 2' Celebrates 5th Anniversary With Free Download, Sale, Tournament, Content Update

Company of Heroes 2 is an RTS game that moves the battle away from the common Western Front focus of World War II and refocuses on some of history’s most brutal and devastating conflicts on the Eastern Front.

It is 1941 and the beginning of what will become the most brutal conflict of World War II, as Germany launches a full-scale invasion of the frozen tundra of the Soviet Union which would result in over 14 million military casualties. Take command of the iconic Soviet Red Army in brutal frontline warfare to free Mother Russia from the invading Nazis.

Your strategic skills and tactical expertise hold the power to tip the very balance of this conflict in the sequel to the critically acclaimed and multi award-winning Company of Heroes. Engage in visceral tactical combat that will define you as a military leader and challenge you to wield the might of the Soviet Empire as you smash your way to Berlin.

Company of Heroes 2 turned five years old earlier this year! To celebrate, Relic Games are looking to end this special year with a fantastic week of activity for the game!

Starting from today, and running until December 10th at 6PM GMT/ 10AM PST, players who have not yet joined the ranks of the Company of Heroes 2 faithful will be able to get the game free on STEAM! This isn't just a free weekend; players will be able to add the game to their library permanently if they redeem the game within this window! Already own COH2? Recruit some friends, and put them through basic training. There's strength in numbers!

Along with the Game Giveaway, major COH2 DLC is 75% off for this period! It's a perfect time to pick up that single player campaign or multiplayer army you've had your eye on. 

This weekend will also see the finals of the biggest 2v2 tournament in COH2 history: The Anniversary Classic. The eight best teams in the world have made it to this final stage, and are going to be battling out for over $20,000 US in prizing! 

Casting legends A_E and Stormless will be covering the action from a studio in Manchester, and fans can watch the mayhem unfold live on Twitch. Keep an eye on the Company of Heroes 2 Twitter account for more details!

Finally, in case all of that wasn't enough, COH2 players can look forward to a seriously juicy content update during the week of December 10th with our Commander Revamp Update.

Together with our invested players and community balance team, we gave 10 underdog commanders a serious overhaul! Major props to everyone involved! Additionally, as part of this patch, players will also be able to enjoy an updated USF Tech System, and some general quality of life balance changes. 

Expect new strategies, new abilities, and even a few new units in what's going to be an incredible update for the game.
