In a bitterly fought contest between two giants of the strategy game genre only one community would emerge victorious. The Total War™ community fought valiantly but ultimately swords and trebuchets proved no match for tanks and automatic weapons as Company of Heroes™ 2 emerged victorious in this unique Steam event.

To the victor goes the spoils and the valiant efforts of the Company of Heroes 2 community have earned all Company of Heroes 2 owners the opportunity to download two brand new commander packs on Steam, for free, until February 22, 2014, 10:00 AM PST.

Introducing Soviet Commander: Advanced Warfare Tactics. He will help you gain vital intelligence and exploit enemy movements with PPSH equipped conscripts and the most powerful incarnation of the vaunted T-34 tank armed with a hard hitting 85mm cannon.

In addition, the German Commander: Close Air Support Doctrine will help you gain tactical air supremacy over your foes by providing close Air Support and cover for frontline engagements by utilizing the powerful weapons of the versatile JU-87 and its destructive power.

A full list of abilities for both commanders can be found on the Steam product page here: http://store.steampowered.com/sub/38625

“Tally ho losers. We kicked your butts!” said Jeffery Simpson, Community Manager for Company of Heroes 2. “Massive congratulations to the awesome Company of Heroes 2 community. Go and download your reward now, you’ve earned it!”

Giving players another reason to celebrate today, Relic also released a brand new update for Company of Heroes 2, introducing several new features.  The ‘Aftermath’ adds Battle Servers to the game, improving the multiplayer quality for matches involving slower internet connections. The update also streamlines the surrender process, adds a new map list and will see the first community created map get integrated into the game.
