Company of Heroes

Company of Heroes, a real-time strategy (RTS) game developed by Relic Entertainment, was proclaimed game of the year in 2006 by such publications as IGN, GameSpot and PC Gamer. The game was the highest rated video game for the PC in 2006 and is still the highest rated RTS today.

Single Player Campaign

Set in the World War II era, the Company of Heroes single player campaign puts the player in charge of U.S. military units from the 101st Airborne and the 29th Infantry Division. The player takes part in major US operations in the Battle of Normandy such as D-Day, Battle of Carentan, Operation Cobra and others.

Multiplayer Modes

With Company of Heroes, the player can play with up to 8 players via LAN or Internet. For this game, the developers used an online gaming system called Relic Online instead of GameSpy Arcade and World Opponent Network, which they have previously used for other games. Relic Online brought new features such as a ranking system and automatch.

When playing multiplayer, players can choose between either Allied of Axis military forces. The game offers Victory Point Control and Annihilation game modes.

System Requirements

This PC game runs Windows XP and Windows Vista. It requires at least a 2.0 GHz Intel Pentium 4 or an AMD Athlon XP processor, a graphics card with a minimum 64 megabytes of VRAM and support for DirectX 9 with Pixel Shader 1.1, and 512 megabytes of RAM.

Expansion Packs

Relic Entertainment has also come out with an expansion pack for Company of Heroes called Opposing Fronts. This expansion adds German Panzer Elite and British forces. Another expansion pack, Tales of Valor, is scheduled for release in 2009.
