Get Company of Heroes, and its expansions Opposing Fronts and Tales of Valor for $1 from Humble Bundle

Humble Bundle is partnering with SEGA, to offer the complete Company of Heroes collection, in celebration of the game series’ 10th anniversary. In case you are not aware of the franchise, Company of Heroes, originally developed by Relic Games, is a real time strategy game, set in the World War II era. It is quite similar to Age of Empires, in that you have to collect resources, and build a base to battle the enemy.

You can control many units including Engineers, Riflemen, Snipers, Paratroopers (Elite Infantry), Tanks, Quads (Half-track), Jeeps, Motorcycle scouts, Anti-tank cannons, and more in a variety of scenarios and random maps, and of course multiplayer battles. The single player content is historical, and quite realistic, including the Omaha Beach invasion in Normandy.

So here is what the Company of Heroes Anniversary Bundle features.

Games which you get for $1:

  • Company of Heroes
  • Company of Heroes: Opposing Fronts
  • Company of Heroes: Tales of Valor
  • Company of Heroes 2 - The Western Front Armies: Oberkommando West

Pay more than the average (currently at $7.28) unlock the following games:

  • Company of Heroes 2 - The Western Front Armies: US Forces
  • Company of Heroes 2
  • Company of Heroes 2 - Case Blue Mission Pack (Add-on)
  • Company of Heroes 2 - Southern Fronts Mission Pack (Add-on)

The third tier, which costs $10 grants you the following content:

  • Company of Heroes 2 - The British Forces
  • Company of Heroes 2: Ardennes Assault
  • Company of Heroes 2 - Ardennes Assault: Fox Company Rangers (Add-on)
  • Company of Heroes 2 - Exclusive Skins Pack (Humble Exclusive)

Buying the third tier gives you the Company of Heroes digital art book as well as a 10% discount off the Humble Monthly subscription.

If you really have a lot of money to spare, you can spend $30 which will get you the exclusive Company of Heroes Bundle T-Shirt, with  worldwide shipping included.

Geekiest verdict:

Get the $1 tier, which gives you access to one of the best RTS games ever made. The singleplayer campaign in Company of Heroes, lets you play as the US army against the Axis. Opposing Fronts features the British 2nd Army or the German Panzer Elite in superb capmpaigns. Tales of Valor features three short campaigns including a storyline featuring a Tiger Tank squad, another storyline starring an American Paratrooper Company, and a third one where you control the Wehrmacht Army.

The Western Front Armies: Oberkommando West is a standalone multiplayer game, and to be honest Company of Heroes 2 is not remotely as good as the original, thanks to all the ridiculous DLCs and In-App-Purchases which Sega bundled in, to ruin the sequel.

Note: All games are Steam Keys, which you need to activate on your account. You can split your payment to contribute to charity, and the game’s developers.
