Company Of Heroes: Opposing Fronts is the next chapter in the critically acclaimed Company Of Heroes series. Players take command of the German Panzer Elite as they struggle against the might of Operation Market Garden, or lead the British 2nd Army in the vicious battle for Caen, France.

The standalone title features two unique armies with full length campaigns, new multiplayer modes, DirectX 10 support, mission persistence, improved vehicle and soldier AI, enhanced physics, and a dynamic weather system. Company Of Heroes: Opposing Fronts is fully compatible with Company Of Heroes, allowing players to wage war with four unique armies.

Two New Armies: Opposing Fronts introduces two new armies to the battlefields of Company Of Heroes. Command the dogged British 2nd Army or take charge of the pride of the Werhmacht, the Panzer Elite. Each army introduces a new play style and explosive new abilities!

Two Full Single-Player Campaigns: Play as the Germans! Fight for the Liberation of Caen as the British. Repel the largest Airborne operation in history as the Panzer Elite during Operation Market Garden. For the first time, players get to play as the Germans in single-player!

    Multiplayer-compatible with Company Of Heroes! Opposing Fronts takes the battle online with full multiplayer compatibility with the original Company Of Heroes for a total of four unique armies.

      Company of Heroes Evolved: Pushing real-time strategy further with single-player mission persistence, dynamic weather and lighting that directly affects combat. New vehicle path finding, meta-formations, AI and physics enhancements, and new MP modes such as objective-based missions make Company Of Heroes: Opposing Fronts the most exciting RTS game ever!

      After being in the beta for opposing fronts for two months now, I thought I'd post up a note for anyone who's interested.

      As with any beta there have been many patches to solve the bugs that come up. But even from the first game I managed to join I knew I was gong to enjoy, the weather effects and lighting give the game an excellent atmosphere. The new fire effects look fantastic even on dx9. I've not moved to Vista yet!! The two new armies each have some interesting abilities, some excellent new units and play quite differently from the existing armies. I the first time I played the British I was very confused about how to build anything but after two games I got the hang of them. With two new campaigns and a fantastic multi player this is shaping up to be a must have for any RTS fan.

      Ok first off let me start by saying I hate RTS games... well I have done to this point. But when I started playing COH I was addicted. I've been beta testing Opposing Fronts from the beginning and it's a fantastic expansion of the original game. The beauty is that you can carry on playing the old Allies and Axis factions as they were before, with the new maps, new graphics, and against new armies.

      It's hard to express how truly dynamic this game is. One mistake doesn't mean you have lost the game. Don't expect to be able to pick up the new armies easily- you won't be great at this game to begin with...it's something that comes with practice. Personally I like to play against the CPU until I know a fair bit about the army I'm commanding and the army I'm up against. If you played the original COH you will find these armies very different indeed. Persevere, and you will find their strengths. And, importantly, the armies are very well balanced. Don't be so quick to blame the game, or one side being "overpowered" - you will find every faction has its strengths and its downfalls.

      Buy it now!!! NOW NOW NOW!


       Amazing - but a few tech problems

      If it weren't for the problems I have been encountering, this game deserves 5 Stars.

      I don't understand why the game insists on uninstalling CoH and reinstalling and then having to login into the online account each time.

      The game seems to crash more than CoH, especially the campaign. MP also seems to be hit and miss with freezing, dropping people and lag.

      Now this maybe JUST me! but I doubt it.

      Otherwise excellent

      Ok this is not a reflection of the game itself as I never got to play it.

      I play COH 95% of the time over my own LAN and was eagerly awaiting this expansion. However Relic decided to throw in an online verification that does not allow you to even play the game in LAN without x amount of copies.

      So so disappointed and my advice to all LAN players is to steer clear until Relic sort this out.

      Now I gotta try take my copy back plus reinstall my original game.

       If you only buy one game this year...

      ...buy this. The finest RTS game available, if you liked CoH you will love this even more. Two new fantastic armies and missions plus loads of new skirmish maps. Even after playing for months you will still be impressed by the detail and movement of the game.
