A new video for Tales of Valor, the upcoming Company of Heroes expansion, has been released, showing control of an SS Tank at the Battle of Billers-Bocage.
You’ll have direct control of the turret and your gunners and tank driver will increase in level over the course of battle.
Watch it after the jump.
The stand-alone expansion is expected sometime in April.

IGN’s gone live with the first impressions of Tales of Valor, the standalone Company of Heroes expansion due for release next year. Snip:
Tales of Valor isn’t an expansion that requires you to own CoH; it’s a stand-alone game that focuses on you controlling a handful of units at a time. In fact, this isn’t a “traditional” RTS game, as the single-player campaign doesn’t feature any kind of base building or node capturing as seen in CoH. This is a much more tactical game in that sometimes you’ll control only a single tank and its crew. The reason is because you become much more invested in your units if you don’t have an endless supply of them being churned out at some base. And if you don’t have to manage a dozen vehicles and squads over an entire battlefield, you can focus on carefully controlling a small team as it navigates around the map.
The first video’s after the break.

This Edge piece brings first details of newly announced Company of Heroes expansion Tales of Valor, confirming the game will include “three ‘mini-campaigns’ with new multiplayer content to be revealed soon.”
From the piece, quoting Tim Holman, senior producer for Relic and the CoH franchise:
“We moved away from the mechanic of building a base, building a large army and going out and finding the enemy,” he said. Instead, Valor, staying true to its title, will highlight more personal, “heroic moments.”
Holman described the first tale, called “Tiger Ace,” which he said is based on an actual event during WWII: British were advancing on a town, when a German tank commander sent his division back, along with his formidable but greatly outnumbered King Tiger tank. “He destroyed 10 tanks and 20 armored cars, just with that single tank. The tank was disabled, the guys escaped back to their division, grabbed another Tiger, and drove the British from the town.”
More through there. The standalone expansion’s due next year.

We had to check the date again before we wrote this.
According to this, Relic’s planning on launching Company of Heroes in China as an “‘experience for online gamers where players will be able to build their character up from private to general through new multiplayer cooperative missions, gameplay modes, and player-versus-player combat’ in a persistent RTS. Presumably, they have a quirky pay-to-play plan to match.”
The move, according to producer Tim Holman, comes from a need to hit the Chinese market but to do it in a way that works for the Chinese.
“Publishers will localize a game [for China], toss it over the fence, and then scratch their heads as to why it’s not selling,” said Holman. @There is a big difference between localization and culturalization — if you’re doing the former, don’t bother. In addition, there is no PC retail market here due to rampant piracy — everything you buy is a pirated version. So you have to make your game online-only and modify the design to be culturally viable in the market.”
Apparently this is taken from the Games for Windows mag in the States. More through the link.

Metaboli‘s inked a new deal with THQ that will see Frontlines: Fuel of War and Warhammer 40,000 Soulstorm, as well as a range of high profile back catalogue titles such as Juiced 2: Hot Import Nights , S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl and Company of Heroes, be made available for sale through its download service.
Soulstorm and Frontlines haven’t shipped yet, and there’s no detail on whether or not these are going to be available through Metaboli at the same time you can buy the discs. Metaboli man’s pretty happy about it, either way.
“This major deal is indicative of the strength that Metaboli has within this market,” said Metaboli’s content boss, Pierre Forest. “We are delighted to partner with THQ and look forward to growing the company’s market penetration through new online distribution channels.”
