THQ and Relic have released the first trailer for Company of Heroes 2 which basically tells you some back history about the war on the Western Front and then quickly shifts focus to the war on the Eastern Front. You know, the one where 11 million soldiers died in Russia defending their homeland and 15 million civilians died, it’s quite shocking in comparison to the numbers on the Western Front.
Company of Heroes 2 will be taking place on the Western Front with you taking control of Russian forces for the first time in the series. Whilst the trailer doesn’t actually contain any in-game footage it does show off a bearded Russian soldier giving orders in CGI so it looks like we’ll have to wait until the next trailer to see the gorgeous engine in action. THQ and Relic have also released another 2 images of the game which you can view with the trailer after the break.
