Sega has announced the Theatre of War mode for the upcoming Company of Heroes 2, along with some details on the new mode.

The famed strategy series’ new addition sees the Theatre of War mode bringing some separate special and unique single-player and co-operative content for players, which will complement the campaign.

“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,” said Greg Wilson, producer of Company of Heroes 2. “Theater of War gives us the opportunity to deliver these new gameplay experiences to our fans.”

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.   

“Theater 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,” said Quinn Duffy, CoH2’s game director.

Officially announced back in May, the sequel will feature a new campaign following the battles across the Eastern Front of Europe in World War II, the new Essence 3.0 Engine, and a ‘True Sight’ game mechanic, in which players will only be able to see what their controlled soldiers see, leaving what may be behind the next building or treeline unknown.

Company of Heroes 2 will release on 25 June 2013 for PC.
