Company of Heroes 2 Revealed, Eastern Front

Share |

Scans from the June issue of PC Gamer UK have the reveal of Company of Heroes 2, a new sequel to the immensely popular RTS game by Relic that will focus on the Eastern Front of WWII.

Here are a couple of snippets:

“You can’t make a game about the Eastern Front and not have snow, but this isn’t just a flat, white texture. This snow has depth, will spread procedurally, and will compact when rolled over by tanks. It changes the way you think about the battlefield: tanks can get bogged down in the deep snowdrifts, infantry can use it to flank. It provides a blanket of cover for the land’s actual terrain. It does everything short of lemon-flavoured snowcones.”

“When the cutscene is over, Matthew is given control of two new squads of Soviets. This time, he makes his own cover by dropping a smoke grenade. As he does so, a fog of war effect greys out the area on the other side. Relic calls this ‘True Sight’, and it’s another of CoH2’s new additions. You can only see what your soldiers can see.”
