Two of my favourite WW2 franchises. The free weekend should see a huge boost in players in both games, so I'm pretty hyped.

Company of Heroes 2 is a WW2 RTS based on the eastern front. Features soviet army vs. ostheer army. Mediocre campaign but very enjoyable multi-player. Easy to get into 1v1, 2v2, 3v3, 4v4 matches with the automatch system. They just came out with a major patch addressing a lot of balance issues and readying the game for the release of stand-alone western army expansions - so in June we will see USA and the western Wehrmacht armies also be introduced to the game. No campaign for them, just an extension of two new factions for multiplayer.

Pretty fuarkn hyped for the game brahs. If you wanna get into the multi for it head over to Coh2.org to see what the community have to say and livestreams of the game. It has a lot of DLC but none of it is needed to help you win matches, they are there for those who are really invested into the game and want to try new things. They are hinting to allow the DLC to be earnt through gameplay soon, like earning new heroes in LoL.

Rising Storm/Red Orchestra 2 is an immersive WW2 multiplayer FPS. Rising storm is based in the pacific, marines vs. Japanese and RO2 is based on the eastern front. Slow paced tactical gameplay, recommend to try it at least if you are an FPS/WW2 fan. 64 player servers, sizable maps and weighty/rewarding gun play.

^Yeap, rising storm is the chit. I am a huge WW2 US fanboy when it comes to WW2 games lol, love the thompson and garand.


I was a huge fan of CoH... CoH 2 was disappointing to be honest

Thats how I felt at first. But over time I eventually started to enjoy it, theres a few nice features and a different style of play that manages to differentiate itself from CoH1. That being said its no CoH1, I was hoping for a direct port from CoH1 to CoH2 with a shiny new engine and thats it heh. Still, I feel like the stand alone armies coming in june, USA and the western Wehrmacht armies will breathe new life into the game.

If you aren't into the multiplayer then yeah I wouldn't recommend it for its campaign, I haven't even finished that chit myself.

To be honest if CoH1 was still popular and alive I would be playing it. But its not, its dead, so thats why I play CoH2. I have a sliver of hope left within me that multi will grow some what more active than it is now.
