Those anticipating the reveal of Company of Heroes 2 may not have much longer to wait, if a bit of swag sent to Kotaku is any indication. According to the site, THQ sent over a replica of the June 22, 1941 front page of The New York Times along with a card stating that “briefings begin May 7.” So, a May 7 reveal looks to be the day, then. The replica of the paper with the headline “Hitler Begins War on Russia, with Armies on March from Arctic to the Black Sea” can be seen through this online microfilm copy. Yesterday, scans from PC Gamer UK popped up online showing the game was not only in the works, but set for release in 2013 from Relic.

Company of Heroes 2 is in the works, according to a scan of the upcoming issue of PC Gamer. The image was posted on Reddit, and the article details a visit the reporter took to Relic to see the game. According to what was gleaned from the scan, the title is set on the Eastern front of World War II and includes Stalingrad, Smolensk, Kursk and Moscow as locations. The game’s lead designer, Quinn Duffy, is quoted as saying: “We want more authenticity, we want more realism, we want more tactical improvements.” Shack contacted THQ regarding the scan and it had “no official comment on the images or article.”

Videogames have proven themselves adept storytellers, effective learning tools, and profoundly able to support whatever the hell WarioWare is.

No cover, no notions of so-called “realism” – just good old-fashioned gory fun. Well, in theory, anyway. But how does it actually fare when tossed into the toothy maw of harsh scrutiny? Find out after the break.
