Company of Heroes 2:

The Western Front Armies Trailers Reintroduce
You to Familiar Forces






By Phil Savage at 08:04 on 02 June 2014

Chances are you already know about the two forces at the centre of Company of Heroes 2: The Western Front Armies. Germany and the US previously fought out their differences in the first Company of Heroes, in 90% of all FPS games made before 2007, and in real-life history. If you do need a refresher, watching these two-minute trailers probably isn't going to help. If, instead, you just need to see some tanks and explosions, they're practically perfect.





The Western Front Armies is a standalone multiplayer expansion, adding the two above forces, and their weapons, infantry, vehicles and upgrades. It will also introduce new maps that will be made available to owners of the original CoH2, ensuring that multiplayer is compatible across the two titles. The expansion is due out on June 24th, and will cost £15/$20.

Company of Heroes 2′s Western Front Expansion Out Now





By Graham Smith on June 25th, 2014 at 8:00 am.

Company of Heroes 2‘s main point of differentiation was that it took the original game’s blend of bombast and squad tactics to the Eastern Front. What is it that therefore sets apart this new multiplayer-only standalone expansion, when The Western Front Armies does as its name suggests and replaces cold climes, Russians and Nazis with grass fields, Americans and yes still Nazis?

The expansion came out yesterday, and perhaps the answer is to be found in the live action launch trailer embedded below.



I thought, for one brief moment of hope, that the two living soldiers were going to lay down their arms in recognition of the monument to suffering that surrounded them. Since they did not, I’d say that the Western Front Armies’ point of differentiation from every other military game – other than the syntactic weirdness of its name – is that it embraces the same gloomy recognition of the inherent futility of war as the other Company of Heroes games.

That and the great explosions.

Since the video above didn’t show actual in-game footage, you might want to hop across and watch some of the previous trailers. To play the expandalone itself will set you back £15. It includes eight new maps, and includes access to Company of Heroes 2′s original multiplayer.
