  Company Of Heroes: Opposing Fronts - Official

We're sorry for the slow updates, but for everyone who lives under a rock, here is the latest on the new expansion pack, Opposing Fronts.

From what we can tell, the game will be "stand alone" - meaning that you won't require the origonal game to use it. It centers around the player taking control of either the German Panzer Elite division, as they fight through the epic Operation Market Garden, or the British 2nd Army as they're forced to fight an intense battle for Caen, France.

The game will feature many improvements to the Essense Engine. This means improved soldier and vehicle AI, enhanced physics, mission persistence, and a dynamic weather system, all of which will add to the game experience and improve overall game quality.

As well a the two new full length campagins and engine improvements, though, the game will make a move to Direct X 10 support. Relic's Essence Engine takes advantage of Windows Vista and DirectX 10, allowing an unprecedented level of graphics in an RTS game.

We will provide more updates on this new title as soon as we get them.

@4: Yes, a couple of people submitted news about this. As a result we went an found some info and posted this. smile

@5: I don't know much about this, but from my understanding it should be compatible with DX9 or DX10, so you will not necessarily need Vista. You will want to double-check this closer to the release date, though, to see if this information is accurate.

@ 10

Nobody is saying they should make Russians landing at Omaha beach, or dropping from the sky in Holland, are they? Did it occur to you that people would like to see an Eastern front?

I agree with #8: Russians and Eastern front would be cooler than what Relic came up with now with 'Opposing Fronts'. It's a missed chance...

I disagree about the Russians, too many ww2 RTS games leave the British/Commonwealth forces out, while 3 new factions wouldve been nice, having the British in the game is a refreshing change. Also they were in the war from the get go till the very end, something that can only be said for the Germans and free-French, and they also contributed more men (in % of population killed) than did the U.S.
