Some of the greatest virtues exhibited by those that fought in World War II were vigilance and fortitude. It felt like an endless conflict at points, as exhibited by Sega and Relic's Company of Heroes 2 and its standalone expansions. There's still another expansion in the works, though, and this latest one spotlights the mighty forces of the United Kingdom.

Company of Heroes 2: The British Forces is the latest standalone expansion for Relic's real-time strategy game. It will feature 15 new units and six commanders, all focusing on authentic representation of the British army. The expansion will also include new tech tree paths that focus on defensive ("anvil") or aggressive ("hammer") tactics. Players will be able to take these new units, as well as their new vehicles and weapons, across eight new multiplayer maps that aim to portray historic locations from WWII.

Those that own other pieces of Company of Heroes 2 will see an update across the main game and expansions. In addition to major balance tweaks and design upgrades, the game will see a revamp in infantry animations. Furthermore, anyone that already owns Company of Heroes 2 or any of the game's expansions will be able to pick the British Forces up for 20 percent off.

Look for Company of Heroes 2: The British Forces to hit PC on September 3.

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?
