Company 9

With Relic’s improved technology, including line-of-sight technology which offers a better emulation of troop visibility in real combat. TrueSight accurately offers a unit’s visibility based on the environmental conditions and the type of unit.

Weather conditions are a major part of the gameplay along with movements and actions applied on the units.  This is thanks to the weather simulating technology known as ColdTech.

Many battles in the Eastern Front took place in the dead of winter, troops could parish from frostbite if outside during the blizzards. Bonfires protect the troops from the elements but at the expense of being detected by the enemy.

Players will obviously move slower through deep snow but maps will have frozen bodies of water, allowing for better movement options. You can face danger of attacks as a result of ice buckling under the weight of the troops.

Company of Heroes 2 maintains the same traditional formulas of the original game. The new game introduces the “Theater of War” which is a series of single player and cooperative missions at various aspects of the Eastern Front.
