An official press release from THQ has confirmed the release of Company of Heroes 2 in “early 2013”, as well as a tasty screenshot which highlights the new fire and snow effects.
This comes off the back of sneak-preview photos of a magazine article released via Reddit we highlighted last week.
Features also confirmed by THQ include:
- Relic® Entertainment’s state of the art proprietary Essence 3.0 EngineTM
- Dynamic Battle Tactics (to bring new technological advancements to the strategy genre)
- Increased graphical fidelity
- New environmental destruction
Greg Wilson, Producer at Relic Entertainment has also commented, saying “Company of Heroes 2 is a true successor, introducing a new front, new protagonists and new technology while retaining the unique mix of strategic gameplay and competitive multiplayer that made the original Company of Heroes such a success.”.
