Company of Heroes 2 and its Ardennes Assault Expansion are free to download and keep forever on Steam this weekend (ends 1 June 2021).
While RTS games have had their heyday, Company of Heroes 2 by Relic Entertainment is a solid entry to anyone’s library. With Company of Heroes, players are guaranteed to get hold one of the best of the genre where tactics triumph over mass numbers and brute force.
If you’ve ever wanted to relive one of the most heart wrenching experiences from HBO’s Band of Brothers, the expansion, Ardennes Assault, has players breaking the line of Bastone and pushing back the Axis.
While Company of Heroes 2 has been around for eight years, the game is still supported by Relic. In January 2021, they released a patch to support 64-bit machines and enabling crossplay between Steam and Microsoft Game Pass / Windows Store users.
