Company of Heroes 2 preloads have begun; 3.8GBs of singleplayer await


Company of Heros 2 has been released; read our Company of Heroes 2 review to find out our verdict.

We’re mere hours from the release of Company of Heroes 2, sequel to one of the finest games on the PC – certainly one of the best real-time strategy games ever released. So as to be able to play the game as soon as possible you may like to know that you can start preloading the game now and be ready to boot up the singleplayer when Relic flick the switches later tonight.

The 3.8GB download isn’t just the singleplayer campaign but also a batch of multiplayer maps that have yet to be seen by players who took part in the game’s open beta. The preload also adds the Theatre of War mode to the game client, something we’ve till now only had a brief hands-on with.

Theatre of War mode recreates key conflicts from across the whole of the Second World War as single mission skirmishes that can be played in co-op online.

So, if you’ve preordered, get downloading now.
