Feral Interactive #announced today, World War II real-time #strategy game Company of Heroes™ 2 will be #released for Linux and Mac via Steam on August 27th, with the Mac App Store version to follow shortly afterwards. Developed by Relic Entertainment using Essence Engine 3.0, published by SEGA for PC, Company of Heroes 2 has received critical praise for its exciting tactical gameplay.
Players will direct their troops through fast-paced real-time battles in the brutal fight to turn the tide of World War II. From the desperate defense of Stalingrad to victory in Berlin, they must defeat a tenacious enemy and survive the deadly cold of the Russian winter.
