Sega has announced a new Company of Heroes 2 mode titled Theatre of War.
In addition to the game's campaign and competitive multiplayer components, Theatre of War will offer a series of single-player and co-op challenges based around the Eastern Front's most iconic battles.
Sega says: "The mode includes solo challenges where players are pitted against overwhelming odds, AI battles against an enemy commander with a unique play style and co-operative scenarios for fans to enjoy with their friends."
At launch, Theatre of War.will include battles set in 1941. Players can choose to fight as the Soviets or the Germans, with each faction offering nine unique missions. Further missions will be added to the game post-release, including the previously announced Company of Heroes 2 pre-order DLC.
Game director Quinn Duffy said: "Theatre of War acts as a perfect bridge between the game's single and multiplayer content providing a high level of re-playability and helping to introduce traditionally solo players to the online elements of the game."
Producer Greg Wilson added: "We get a lot of requests from fans to showcase specific conflicts from the war and it isn't always possible to fit these into the campaign. Theatre of War gives us the opportunity to deliver these new gameplay experiences to our fans."
