Company of Heroes 2: The British Forces releases launch trailer
Company of Heroes 2 has slid under the radar for most gamers as the RTS genre has funneled most interested parties into the Starcraft arena. While the World War II strategy game has its dedicated fans, those that inhabit the games multiplayer still intend on remaining. Their perseverance has paid off with the launch of the games third multiplayer expansion pack Company of Heroes 2: The British Forces.
Featuring 8 news maps, 15 new units, and an array of balance changes to already existing mechanics, British Forces hopes to give the franchise traction in the dwindling age of the WWII RTS genre. A slew of new character animations and changes to the five factions are also included in the $12.99 price tag.
What is important to note is that this is a standalone multiplayer expansion. Anyone can purchase The British Forces and receive all the original multiplayer maps from the base game as well as everything that comes in the expansion. For those uninterested in RTS story components, this is great news.
The expansion releases today, so RTS fans should check it out! Let us know in the comments how you like the new changes or if you are a newcomer enjoying it for the first time.
