Après le front de l’Est, Company of Heroes 2 repart à l’ouest, du coté de Bastogne cette fois avec une prochaine extension stand alone intitulée Ardennes Assault. Cet add-on proposera une campagne dynamique de 18 missions, la gestion d’un nombre limité de soldats, qui pourront toutefois gagner en expérience et que vous conserverez au fil des différentes batailles. En somme un contenu plus conséquent que la précédente petite extension (The Western Front Armies) qui était certes aussi sur le thème du front de l’ouest, mais se destinait uniquement au mode multijoueurs.
Pour l’occasion voici trois première captures d’écrans. La sortie de Ardennes Assault est prévue ce 18 novembre.
SAN FRANCISCO & LONDON – August 13, 2014 – SEGA® of America, Inc. and SEGA® Europe Ltd. today announced Company of Heroes™ 2: Ardennes Assault; an all new standalone single-player expansion and a harrowing new chapter in the critically acclaimed series. Company of Heroes 2: Ardennes Assault is inspired by the conflict that Winston Churchill once described as “undoubtedly the greatest American battle of the war” – the Battle of the Bulge. The new campaign content will see players take control of the US Forces in this pivotal World War II battle in the densely forested, strategically critical Ardennes region of Western Europe. They will face huge tactical and navigational challenges as they strive to repel a surprise attack from the relentless German Oberkommando West forces in 18 brand new, single-player scenarios.
Company of Heroes 2: Ardennes Assault will feature three entirely new Companies to choose from within the US Forces, each with their own unique Officers and play-style. Players will see their decisions and actions reflected across the Ardennes landscape in this dynamic new single-player campaign. Player choices are crucial as every decision will not only impact the story but also their Company with upgrades and Veterancy carrying over from mission to mission. With limited soldiers under your command, you must manage their lives and well-being effectively or risk losing that Company for good. Will you lead your Company valiantly and emerge as heroes?
“We can’t wait to bring our players this awesome new single-player campaign for Company of Heroes 2,” said Greg Wilson, Executive Producer at Relic Entertainment. ”We managed to include more missions in this expansion than we had in the original release and it’s packed full of great new features which we’ll be revealing over the coming months.”
Company of Heroes 2: Ardennes Assault is developed by Relic Entertainment and will be launching on November 18, 2014, for Windows PC and PC digital download platforms.
