Any fan of World War II based games will definitely know Company of Heroes (CoH). Relic Entertainment’s real time strategy (RTS) opus featured magnificent tactical controls laced with a terrific storyline and gameplay experience. Leading either the Able Company or the Fox Company of the US Army, players were promoted to the rank of field commander to lead their men to victory. The standalone expansion packs Tales of Valor and Opposing Fronts also added tremendous replay value in terms of new armies as well as new multiplayer modes.
Now, Relic has opened its door to beta participants for Company of Heroes: Online. This free-to-play take on the brilliant RTS series apparently allows you the same amount of action and strategic control along with a touch of personalization that is common among online games:-
Choose from six different combat doctrines, each with its own strengths and combat styles. Customize your army and enter each conflict with your own unique set of battle-tested Heroes, unit upgrades, and devastating Commander Abilities.
Since this game will be free-to-play, the beta is also free-to-play. Which means you can dive into the game right this instant!
Quite coincidentally (not), Steam has put up a sale of all the CoH titles for $12.49. That’s 75% off, number-crunchers! So, which one will it be today for you?
