If you’re going into the weekend with a hankering for a good RTS or looking to fight yet another virtual version of World War 2, I have some good news for you. You can do both for free if you download Company of Heroes 2, which is free on Steam until May 31st. In addition, Sega is also giving away the Ardennes Assault single-player campaign as well. Anyone who claims the games before the free promotion expires will be able to keep them forever.
There’s also a Company of Heroes sale on Steam at the moment, so if you like what you find in Company of Heroes 2, you can get other Company of Heroes games and DLC for up to 80% off. Company of Heroes 2 is a bit old – the game was released in 2013, and the original was released in 2006 – but the games are still perfectly playable, which is a testament to Relic’s design.
Company of Heroes 2’s main story follows the Red Army on the Eastern Front. The Ardennes Assault single-player campaign adds another campaign that follows the American Armed Forces. We liked Company of Heroes 2 when we reviewed it, so you should definitely pick it up if you get a chance.
