SEGA have unveiled an all-new mode for Company of Heroes 2 called 'Theatre of War' that will see players taking on a wealth of skirmish-specific solo and co-op challenges, playing across a number of battlefields and location across 1941's Eastern Front.
Players can opt to choose to be either the Soviets or the Germans, with each faction serving up nine missions from which to choose: three solo challenge missions set in extreme conditions, three skirmishes against an AI with a distinct play style, and three co-op scenarios so you can take the field with a chum.
“We get a lot of requests from fans to showcase specific conflicts from the war and it isn’t always possible to fit these into the campaign," said producer Greg Wilson. "Theatre of War gives us the opportunity to deliver these new gameplay experiences to our fans.”
We'll have a hands-on preview from our time with the multiplayer beta and Theatre of War very soon.
