the company that changed the face of the history
wining developer Relic Entertainment delivers the next revolution in real
gaming. Company of Heroes is an Action Strategy game set in WWII that
brings to life the journey of the brave men of Able Company as they fight
the gratest war mankind has ever known.
with the D-Day Invasion of Normandy, players will lead squads of Allied
troops into battle against the German war machine trough some of the most
privotal battles of WWII. Through a rich single player campaign, players
will experience the cinematic intensity and bravery of ordinary soldiers
thrust into extraordinary events.
Company of Heroes is set during World
War II where the player follows a fictional military unit, known as
Able Company, as they fight their way through some of the greatest
and bloodiest battles of World War II in the European theatre,
including the D-Day landings at Normandy.
The developers took quite a lot of
"creative liberties" with level design so that missions would fit
comfortably with the gameplay. For example, Able Company landed at
Omaha with the 29th Infantry Division, yet was inexplicably
transferred to the Advance from Utah Beach, with the 90th Infantry
Also, the members of Fox Company
(another company in the game) and Able Company referred to the other
companies as though they were the only Fox and Able Companies in the
US Army - in fact, "Able" and "Fox" Companies were present in every
Regiment in Normandy - as "Able" and "Fox" were Joint Army/Naval
