Sega has announced that Relic’s seminal Company of Heroes (along with its less seminal sequel Company of Heroes 2) will be getting a massive content dump today. Company of Heroes will see multiple new features added such as such as secure leaderboards, battle and arbitration servers.
Meanwhile, Company of Heroes 2 gets the brand new Theatre of War pack, ‘Southern Fronts’ , which costs $4.99/£2.99/€3.99/AUD 6.49, two free maps as well, and finally, a number of game improvements. Most importantly, Company of Heroes 2 also gets the ability to community created maps in the World Builder via Steam’s Workshop.
“These brand new updates show our ongoing commitment to providing the community with regular additions of free and premium downloadable content,” said Greg Wilson, Executive Producer at Relic Entertainment. “We are also very excited that we were able to deliver the Steam Workshop maps integration for the World Builder before the end of the year as it will become a vital part of providing our community with the ability to create their own content.”
Looks like Sega may have some big plans for the series going forwards.
