Sega and Relic Entertainment are ready to bring Company of Heroes 2 back to the series' roots with The Western Front Armies standalone multiplayer expansion. Sega has revealed a June 24 release date for the new CoH2 content and has accompanied the announcement with a new trailer.

The latest trailer shows some of the infantry from both the new U.S. Forces and German Oberkommando West factions engaging in the series' recognizable RTS combat. The battle quickly escalates when tanks roll in from both sides.

The Western Front Armies expansion will include eight new maps and over 1,000 community-created maps from the Steam Workshop. Those picking up the expansion without the base game will still get access to Company of Heroes 2's 23 existing maps for multiplayer. Each of the new factions will be available for $13 individually or $20 for both. Sega and Relic are also offering some pre-order bonuses for picking up both new armies with two unique vehicles skins and matching faceplates.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?

        I really wish Men of War: Assault Squad 2 had leaned a little bit more toward realism and included a decent tactical AI for co-op. MOWAS2 seems to be flying entirely under the radar while CoH2 really didn't impress me at all, it's rather sad when I see the "release date" of a game as x+3 years for it to be actually done and fun.
