Company of Heroes turns 10 let's celebrate

Today, 12th September, is the day of the anniversary and you can watch two COH heavyweights go head-to-head in a COH2 grudge match, as Executive Producer, Greg Wilson, takes on Game Director, Quinn Duffy which will be live streamed in its entirety on Relic’s official Twitch channel, starting at 9am PDT.

Relic will also be revealing a celebratory 3D diorama for people to print on their home 3D printers, a celebratory wallpaper for the community and a sale on the COH2 in-game store, where everything will be 66% off until September 20th. Be sure to follow Company of Heroes on Twitter to ensure you don’t miss out on any of the other planned activities.

Modding and user-generated content have played an important part throughout the franchise’s history. The modding community for the original COH has been going strong for ten years now; and COH2 recently saw the introduction of UGC and revenue share (for vehicle skins), while the Steam Workshop offers thousands of custom maps. Therefore, Relic hopes to unveil even more initiatives around modding and UGC in the coming months to honor this legacy – separate announcements will follow. In the meantime, now is the perfect time to revisit some of the most creative mods for COH1 – for instance, Modern Combat and The Great War, respectively here and here.

“We’re immensely proud to be celebrating 10 years of Company of Heroes“ said Justin Dowdeswell, General Manager of Relic Entertainment. "and we hope that our community, and perhaps even some new players, will be able to enjoy and benefit from the activities we have planned around this huge milestone. Company of Heroes left a legacy of quality and innovation and we’re looking forward to the next ten years!”
