The big difference with THQ's Company of Heroes 2 is players will be taking control of the Russian Army. You can count on one hand the number of games that has gamers taking control of the Soviet Red Army throughout the majority of said game. We've dabbled with Russian forces in Battlefield and Call of Duty titles, but Company of Heroes 2 is going to teach you a thing or two about the Russian resistance to Germany's advances in 1941. History buffs will know that campaign is the one where the Russians used the punishing winter as an ally, forcing Germany to spend tremendous resources and time just trying to stay resupplied and active.
This teaser trailer gives you a taste of just what it was like in the WWII battle.
