If you pick up Company of Heroes 2 on Steam this weekend, it will be yours to keep. Released in 2013, Company of Heroes 2 is a World War II-themed real-time strategy. Unlike the 2006 original game where players controlled U.S. military during the Battle of Normandy and the liberation of France, the sequel focuses on the Eastern Front and commanding units of the Soviet Red Army. Besides the Company of Heroes 2 base game, you can also snatch the Company of Heroes 2: Ardennes Assault expansion pack. In Ardennes Assault, you play as the USF and you battle the OKW forces in Belgium.

There’s more Company of Heroes 2-related content on Steam, and all of it is heavily discounted until June 3rd. If you have never played Company of Heroes 2 before, this gives you more than enough time to try it out and see whether or not you like it and to purchase more DLCs if you do.
Company of Heroes 1 and 2 have been developed by Relic Entertainment, best known as the developers behind Homeworld and the Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War series. If you are a real-time strategy fan, all of these Relic games are well-worth playing. Have a great weekend and enjoy your free game!
