A cinematic trailer for Relic’s Company of Heroes 2 single -player campaign shows the Russian Front during World War 2 as well as emphasizing the high price one pays for victory under those circumstances.
The trailer starts with a young officer after the war who is being interrogated about a book he wrote which chronicles the experiences on him and his men but also contains the damaging truth of what he saw. He and his men fought and were victorious in the five month Battle of Stalingrad and were able to advanced on the German lines and push them back. This all came at a high cost though, war and death make ordinary soldiers in animals.
The trailer can be viewed below.
Company of Heroes 2 is out on Windows PC on June 25.
