June 2, 2014 — SEGA today revealed brand new trailers showcasing the two factions in the upcoming The Western Front Armie’ for critically acclaimed Company of Heroes™ 2.
The Oberkommando West , battle hardened and newly equipped, are a resurgent and very dangerous foe. Despite being challenged by an economy nearly shattered after years of continuous war, the Oberkommando West still manage to field some of the most impressive heavy armor yet seen: the technical prowess of Germany is on full display as devastating armored force equipped with a new generation of super-heavy tanks repeatedly counterattack the US Forces attempting to drive into the heart of Germany.
Under the Command of General Dwight D. Eisenhower, US Forces have driven ashore on the bloody beaches of Normandy and fought their way deep into Europe driving back the German war machine. Now battle fatigued and spread out on enemy soil, an army made of citizen soldiers are pitted against a battle-hardened professional military with over four years’ experience. Facing the best Germany has to offer, the US Forces fight desperately and viciously to expand the frontlines.
