The British are coming to Company of Heroes 2. Sega and Relic Games announced the latest standalone expansion, Company of Heroes 2: The British Forces. It’s a multiplayer-only affair that adds 15 units, eight maps, and six commanders to the real-time strategy game under the new British Army faction, including the Churchill Crocodile flamethrower tank and the RAF glider. Players who purchase this title without any of the other Company of Heroes 2 games will be able to play against any faction on any of the previously released maps. Along with the expansion, Relic is updating the game with a motion-captured animation system, and a “major” design upgrade to balance the existing factions.
Play as the unconquerable Britons and their motley-crew of soldiers! A force remarkable for its diversity, including Englishmen, Scotsmen, Welshmen, Irishmen – representing everyone from the working classes to the upper class elite of the United Kingdom.
Company of Heroes 2: The British Forces is available for preorder on Steam. The standalone expansion releases on September 3rd.
