Furious tank battles await

This epic real-time strategy game is a blessing to the genre. Not only does it give us fantastic, brain-twisting combat, it serves as a history lesson, too.

Company of Heroes 2 focuses on the bloody Eastern Front conflicts during World War II. As such, you’ll be controlling the Soviet army, and dealing with harsh winter conditions. So yes, not only do soldiers have to dodge bullets, they also have to stay warm enough not to die of frostbite.

With the roar of cannons and the screams of dying soldiers your constant companion in battle, this game will test your ability to make quick, solid decisions under pressure – which will, in turn, do wonders for your concentration.

Not to mention you’ll learn a lot about the horrors of the Eastern Front in this grim history lesson… making it one of the bloodiest educational games in existence.
