Gamers will experience the journey of the brave men of Able Company in a deep single-player campaign that begins with the invasion of Normandy through their fight across Europe, all set against a dynamic battlefield.

Company of Heroes' completely destructable environment means no two battles ever play out in the same way. Advanced squad AI promises new realism and responsiveness, bringing soldiers to life as they interact with the environment and execute advanced squad tactics to eliminate the opposition forces.
