Interview: The Western Armies are coming and Chris Capel gets the lowdown with Relic's Greg Wilson and Quinn Duffy.

It's not often I get called to do an interview with a couple of guys from a popular developer with the intention of just asking them questions about a game that's been out for a year. Despite Company of Heroes 2 coming out in June 2013 to great acclaim (it got a 9.0 from ourselves) developer Relic have been hard at work tweaking and improving the game to keep the still-popular multiplayer fresh....

Interview: For the Motherland!

Company of Heroes 2 goes back to basics, throwing two asymmetrical armies against each other in the Eastern Front of World War II. At this year’s Eurogamer Expo, we caught up with Principle Designer Quinn Duffy to see how things were going. Strategy Informer: You’ve showcased the use of snow and the environment in the game...

Interview: In Soviet Russia, developer interviews you.

Company of Heroes is back, people. The franchise that holds the highest Metacritic ranking for a strategy franchise ever has returned, and it means business. It’s always a dangerous thing to get excited about a game when we’re barely out of the announcement period, but still, this is good news. We tried to dig a little deeper as we spoke to the game’s lead director, Quinn Duffy:...

That’s...

Preview: it's bloody cold... it's bloody cold out here...

It’s cold out here… so very cold. Markov lost his foot the other day… then he lost his temper and threw it at Cherkov, which shattered his hand, which we all just found funny. We stopped laughing though when the bullets began to fly, the slow crack of a rifle, the puka-puka of machine guns... and every now and then a tank would roll up and really ruin our day. World War II was full of...

Preview: Always take the weather with you...

Company of Heroes 2 poses a real humdinger of a question: who is your real enemy? On one hand, enemy soldiers stifle your advance with continuous gunfire. On the other, the Eastern Front challenges your will to survive. Combine the two, and an intense RTS experience is formed. For the most part, it's the use of weather that...

Preview: In Soviet Russia, game play you.

Between you and me… and the internet, I guess, I never really expected to see an actual announcement for Company of Heroes 2. Relic seemed content with running with the Warhammer 40K license these past few years, and even their experiment with Company of Heroes Online seemed to not go as well as they had planned. Still, it’s nice to be proven wrong, and doubly nice to see that Relic have...
