Company of Heroes 2 @ E3 2013

Company of Heroes 2 E3 2013

Company of Heroes 2 is at the SEGA booth in full force with both Singleplayer and Multiplayer demo areas available. In addition to great content on floor, Relic Entertainment is supporting each session with members from the development staff. The booth looks slick, but the game is even slicker.

Company of Heroes 2 E3 2013

At the Company of Heroes singleplayer demo area, the Land Bridge to Leningrad is the featured campaign map. The mission, which appears about half way through the game, starts with the Russian army advancing on the Germany forces. The Russians cross the precarious frozen river with tanks and infantry in an attempt to break the siege, all while the ice is being bombarded by artillery.

The mission is action packed and a great way to show off all the features of Company of Heroes. The ice is fully breakable and create an enormous problem while advancing across it. With each vehicle that crosses the ice, the closer it comes to breaking and sending your troops into the frozen waters below.

In the Multiplayer section, people are treated to a 4v4 skirmish across a variety of maps. Relic Entertainment is on hand to give advice and help players dominate in online matches.

Overall the feedback for Company of Heroes 2 has been fantastic. From both singleplayer and multiplayer, people are walking away excited to get their hands on the final game later this June. Be sure to check out our Flickr album for all the new media from the E3 floor.

Have a Question on Company of Heroes 2?

We’re gathering your feedback and sending it straight to the Relic Entertainment team for a Q&A at the end of the show. If you are curious about anything, let us know, we can’t guarantee an answer, but we’re commited to passing fan feedback directly to the developers!

Total War: Rome II @ E3 2013

Total War: Rome II E3 2013

Total War: Rome II at E3 this year is massive. The Creative Assembly team have a huge stage with full presentation and hands on demo of the Battle for the Nile within the main campaign. The walkthrough is excellent, showing off the incredibly detailed new Campaign Map.

If you’ve not seen the recent trailer release, check it out and then read up on the battle below:

Battle of the Nile

Total War: Rome II E3 2013

After pursuing his former co-consul Gnaeus Pompey Magnus to Egypt in 48BC, Caesar found himself embroiled in the civil war between Cleopatra and her brother Ptolemy XIIIth. Caesar, along with the 13th Legion of Rome, became besieged in Alexandria by Ptolemy’s forces. However, Caesar’s increasing support for Cleopatra led to Ptolemy fleeing the city.

Realizing he needed more armed forces, Caesar called on his ally, Mithridates of Pergamum, for assistance. Mithridates heeded the call and marched from Asia Minor with his army, crossing onto Egyptian soil in 47BC. Ptolemy sent a force to intercept them, but this was summarily defeated. Free now to maneuver , Caesar took the 13th, combined forces with Mithridates, and marched on Ptolemy’s position.

Total War: Rome II E3 2013

Our interpretation of The Battle of The Nile will appear as a historical battle in Total War: ROME II, and enables players to employ a number of exotic units. At E3, the battle can be played from the Egyptian perspective as they defend their hilltop encampment, or as the Romans as they assault the hill. Playing as Rome is distinctly more challenging!

Screens & Concept Art

To get a better sense of the Battle for the Nile, there is a massive update of over twenty new screens and concept art – all available in our Total War flickr album. We’ve picked a few samples for the blog, but we encourage you to check them all out!
