“The British Are Coming” to Company of Heroes 2
Today I bring to you something special from the mouths of Relic Entertainment. The British Forces has been something that’s been asked for since Company of Heroes 2 first came out, and finally now, they’re ready to bring it to us.
You’ll have the chance to play as the Britons; the collective force of the English, Scots, Welsh, and Irish. From the working class, all the way up to the elite of the United Kingdom. Commanded by the great Sir Winston Churchill. This groups join sides to become the only remaining Western European nation to escape the grip of Axis-dominated Europe, before leading the final offensive with the other Allied Forces. The Britons are a unique faction in that you’ll constantly be wagering mobility and defence, giving you the power of two factions for the price of one. Change your play style frequently and unpredictably to punish your enemies.
In the hands of the Britons are also 15 unique units. From the Churchill Crocodile flamethrower tank, to the RAF glider. Manage your commanders’ abilities to get the most out of air raids and artillery strikes. New mo-capped animations push every game from CoH2 up to the modern age, with updated animations for every game. New maps improve on the previously great collection of maps, not to mention Steam Workshop support. All games under the Company of Heroes 2 collective will also receive major design upgrades to improve balancing and control over the existing factions.
