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.
