London, 6 December 2018 – Company of Heroes 2, developed by Relic Entertainment and published by SEGA Europe, celebrated its fifth birthday in 2018. We’ve been marking the occasion with various streams, updates, and community events, and wanted to end the year with a huge COH2 game giveaway, and our largest tournament in the title’s history!
From December 6th at 10AM PT until December 10th at 10AM PT, players who have yet to dive in to this critically acclaimed World War 2 real-time strategy game can do so for free! Anyone who logs on to Steam during this period can add the Company of Heroes 2 base game to their library, and it’s theirs to keep after the promotion ends. This is the perfect opportunity for new players to experience a fantastic single-player campaign, epic Theatre of War scenarios, and of course spectacular multiplayer battles throughout a variety of historical WW2 locations. To all the fans out there already playing Company of Heroes 2, make sure to spread the word to your friends, and recruit some new soldiers to fight on your side!
As well as the Company of Heroes 2 5th Anniversary Giveaway, Relic Entertainment and SEGA Europe are proud to present the finals of the Anniversary Classic, a massive tournament featuring some of the best COH2 players from all over the world battling head to head for a prize pool of over $20,000 USD!
Top level COH2 teams have been duking it out in qualifying rounds over the past few months, and it all comes to a head as the eight remaining teams go to battle for glory (and spoils of war) in the Grand Finals on December 8th & 9th. COH2 community casting legends A_E and Stormless will be covering the action from a studio in Manchester, and fans can watch the action unfold live on Twitch at twitch.tv/relicentertainment.
