Relic has released a new Company of Heroes 2 developer diary, in which the team’s Brett Pascal, Greg Wilson, Jasen Torres and Rob Westwood discuss the strategy title’s gameplay. The team also touches up on the new light of sight system, TrueSight, and how the horrors of war on the Eastern Front will immerse the player in battlefields of WWII. The video also provides some in-game clips. In other news, a closed beta test is expected sometime “after the New Year,” and an Alpha stress test will go live next week for a limited number of players. Company of Heroes 2 is expected on PC in March 2013.
