Company of Heroes Revealed

Relicnews has word on Company of Heroes, an unannounced RTS project in the works at Relic Entertainment that will apparently be unveiled in the June issue of PC Gamer magazine. The only details in the report are the game's World War II setting, and its inclusion of destructible terrain and rag doll physics. Thanks Frans.

I think venomhed is right in ways. There are too many WW2 games out there but why not try the Pacific or North Africa they were there too. Medal of Honor tried it and that is good. A start nonetheless. In every game it is the same thing. Europe, Europe, Europe. D-Day is in every one of them too. I've probably seen more of D-Day than the G.I.'s did. I find that I know exactly what is coming up around the corner and in the next mission too. I heard that the upcoming Call of Duty 2 has missions in North Africa and the Pacific. It's a start nonetheless. Now developers are going to beat the horse of Vietnam to DEATH. The new Medal of Honor game that is soon to come out,the name is Medal of Honor EUROPEAN Assult, I think. Now how can they still get fun out of this dead horse pulp? Why don't we do the OSS aspect of the war...NO! Too much have I seen of Europe in World War Two. No more please. Do they not get that most everyone is tired of World War Two in Europe. Maybe some in Russia would be interesting. The one aspect that everyone (excluding Call of Duty) forgot. Now they are starting to bore me so much that I wish to quit and go drill holes in the developers heads. Now they are making those apoptalictic games but when will they milk that one to the end? At least that is a start to get away from World War Two Europe...

Fuck WW2! This horse has been beaten FAR too long. I mean christ, WW2 has been on the PC 10X longer than the friggin war lasted!

Oh and brothers in arms, "so realistic!". Uh ya, I do recall 4 American Soldiers killing 1500 Germans that mindlessly jumped over the same fence only to be mowed down by your thompson gun. SO realistic!

When will people start exploiting post apocalyptic stories like Auto Duel, Car wars, mad Max, wasteland, fall out? We need more of that shit, since we are so headed in that direction.

If it comes from Relic, then it must be good.

Admittedly, this is the sole reason to not write this game off. Relic almost rivals Blizzard and Bioware for consistently excellent releases.

But nowadays, it feels like the game itself has to be really spectacular to overcome the boredom of the same setting.

Soldiers: Heroes of WWII had everything described in Relic's project, as well as RPG-style equiping of units and even toggled "direct control". They'll really need to pull some major innovation out of their arse to sell this one. I truly hope they do.

I miss original stories and new worlds. Ironically, I loaded up Homeworld last night for the first time in many years. Still a fantastic game and story.

Ah, Homeworld. Absolutely one of the best games I have ever played.

I just happen to have a relative working there in Vancouver and he told me about their upcoming project. He tells me that it's going to be their best game. Well we shall see.

Even the most original design houses are now having to shoehorn their ideas into WWII. First Irrational shipping Freedom Force back to WWII rather than moving ahead to the (much more interesting) 1970s era of comics. Now Relic, creators of Homeworld, Impossible Creatures and Warhammer... WWII.

Yes, yes, if it's a great game I'll buy it. But nowadays, it feels like the game itself has to be really spectacular to overcome the boredom of the same setting.

PC gaming is in a rut.

World War II...again. I miss original stories and new worlds. Ironically, I loaded up Homeworld last night for the first time in many years. Still a fantastic game and story.
