Strategy game Company of Heroes 2’s Mac Version is Now Available

World War II is upon us (again) with Company of Heroes 2, the latest real-time strategy game from Feral Interactive. The game was released on January 27, 2015 for both Mac and is available on the Mac App Store.

Company of Heroes 2 is sequel to the critically acclaimed Company of Heroes, one of my favourite strategy games for Mac. But how can you follow-up on a game that single-handedly revolutionised the genre when it was first release? Turns out, Company of Heroes 2 is an improved and refined version of the Company of Heroes formula we know and love.

Company of Heroes 2 moves out of the tired battles we know (Battle of Normandy anyone?) and focuses on the infamous battles lead by the Red Army on the Eastern Front. From the desperate defence of Stalingrad to victory in Berlin, you will have to defeat tenacious enemies and survive the deadly cold of the Russian winter. You can see it running smoothly natively on Mac OS X here:

 

CoH 2 will challenge you and force you to use the terrain at your advantage (by the way, those destructible environments look amazing), use cover and master the art of using unit types – soldiers, guns and tanks – against each other.

The game features objective-based missions, a skirmish mode and Multiplayer. The Steam version of the game supports Mac-Mac and Linux-Linux multiplayer using Steamworks. The Mac App Store version of Company of Heroes 2 will support Mac-to-Mac multiplayer using Feral’s own multiplayer matching service.

Company of Heroes 2’s Mac system requirements are:

  • 1.8Ghz CPU with at least 4.0GB RAM
  • 512MB or better graphics card
  • Mac OS 10.10.3 or later
  • AMD R9 series graphics card, an Intel Iris Pro graphics card, or a NVIDIA 600 series graphics card or better.

Are you excited about this one? Are you planning on getting your hands on it?

    It is a great conversion by Feral and after some initial Steam problems I was up and running. But sadly the Sega money-grubbing is enough to spoil any fun. Try the campaign – oh, I have to pay more to get access to that. Start an individual scenario and then try to save – oh, I have to pay for that too. I bought three DLC packs. I hate to think how little of the game I’d have been able to play if I hadn’t done that.

    • That’s a fair comment. To be honest, I haven’t played enough of it to actually notice that. So far I started the campaign and did a few skirmishes. So far I freakin’ love it!

        I’m glad to say, that this turns out to be a bug that Feral have now fixed. I’m back to enjoying the game again now.

        • That’s good to know! Thanks for the info, I know a ton of people use these comments to decide if they should get a Mac game or not!
