Company of Heroes 2 cinematic trailer exacts a high price for victory

New, 9 comments

A story trailer for the single-player campaign in Relic's Company of Heroes 2 shows the brutality of World War 2's Russian Front.

After the war, a young officer is under interrogation regarding the contents of a book he'd written about the experiences of his men and how damaging the truth of the matter could be. Scraping out a victory in the devastating five-month Battle of Stalingrad, he and his men advanced on the German lines and pushed them back, but often at a heavy cost. War and death make ordinary soldiers into animals, and the young officer accepts his death if it means revealing what he's seen.

Company of Heroes 2 hits Windows PC on June 25.
