Another survivor of the demise of THQ in the embrace of its new owner in SEGA, celebrated developer Relic Entertainment’s hotly anticipated strategy sequel Company of Heroes 2 is almost on store shelves.

Building on the legacy of its predecessor, CoH 2 introduces a host of new dynamic gameplay features to into the real-time strategy formula, taking the battle to the defining campaigns of World War II’s grisly Eastern Front, and the Nazi advance on the Soviet Union.

AusGamers has put the title through its respectfully PC-exclusive paces, and the results are looking good. Find out how good in our in-depth Company of Heroes 2 review.

Company of Heroes 2 launches on June 25th 2013

Unfortunately, it hasn’t included a server browser, which means you’re stuck making custom matches with friends or relying on a matchmaking system

'apparently' custom server browser will be in the full game (like coh1)

My quick review of COH2 MP for newbs who are interested:

CoH2 is fun – gameplay is so satisfying. It is missing a lot of features players of StarCraft have become accustomed to however it is still awesome fun to play online.

The game has base building but it is mostly focused on map control, unit positioning, and dynamic strategy.

There is no ‘win’ unit and you can’t sit on one base C&C style however you don’t have to be Korean to be good either.

IMO CoH2 is halfway between a MOBA and an RTS.

As someone who will only play the multiplayer I am disappointed with the lack of features I have become used to in RTS since the release of SC2.

If you enjoy RTS games and want to try to move from skirmish mode to online then this is the game to do it on. While you can't just sit in your base and build a massive army you at least only require a fraction of the APM required in SC and there is no economy to look after.

Here are the negatives:
- No decent replay system
- No option for searching for a game as 'random'
- No ladders (apparently using steam ladders in full release whatever they are)
- No mirror matchups on ladder/automatch
- No ability to know when steam friends are in a match or not (dota2 does this with steam)
- No indication of an opponents skill level like in SC2 or even COH1 when loading into a map
- Can't edit hotkeys

Positives:
- lag issues are minimal
- Twitch.tv integration for streaming which should encourage streams and competitive play
- Steamworks integration is at least better than the coh1 system full of smurfs
- despite some balance and gameplay mechanics that I disagree with the game is still fun sometimes infuriating to think how good it could be if Relic had Valve money.
- runs at high settings decent frames with a GTX470 and good frames at low settings with a gtx275

Good thing I play skirmish. I have found the last few patches, it has made the AI harder and I get base rushed by the AI.

Should I play the first Company of Heros before playing this? To maximise CoH enjoyment time?

if you are more interested in the single player - yes.

if multiplayer - no

often is on sale at steam or the THQ (though I guess SEGA now) store.

infact, pretty sure I have a spare cdkey you can add to steam. let me know if you dun have it and ill PM you.

Mostly interested in single player. I've already got it, picked it up in one of the steam sales, thanks though!

I'll get into it once I get my PC setup again.

Learn to Play PeterThePossumMan instead of just doing comp stomps on easy mode. Germans and Soviets are well balanced but there are some bugs in the game which need to be ironed out.

I am playing again real players, not against bots. Soviets are OP and it's pretty much the consensus across the coh2 community.

Soviet MG's are overpowered. 6 men in the squad and they don't die even if you get behind them and shoot at them for 2 minutes. It takes 4 German rifle nades to kill them if you are lucky. Not to mention if they get into a building, you may aswell forget killing them because it takes up to 6 rifle nades to kill them.

Running around the building so the MG has to change direction doesn't work either, the 5 man support gunners on the MG actually kills your rifle squad before you can kill the MG as you are running around the building for a good 5 minutes. Motars don't hurt them in buildings either.

Buildings need to be nerfed big time.

I only lost about 2-3 games over the weekend (out of maybe 15 or so). Played about 50/50 german/soviet.

Wish you could search for a game as random.
