Company of Heroes: Tales of Valor Discussion
Basically, there will be "3 Mini-Campaigns" which each consist of 3 missions:
"Episode 1: Tiger Ace: Control Tiger Tank Ace Hauptmann Voss's highly decorated Tigergruppen against the British 7th Armored Division on D-Day in one of the most famous tank battles of WWII.
Episode 2: Causeway: Command and American Paratrooper Company in the hours following the initial D-Day landings.
Episode 3: Falaise Pocket: Command the Wehrmacht Army as your soldiers try and hold off the advancing Allied army. "
Also, in campaign it has the same "Level up & Experience" system as DoW2 (Dawn of War 2) which allows you to upgrade your Command units (the important units, not the meat shields)
So that means: no Soviets, no Italians, no Pacific front, no Vietnam and other variations, but a spin-off campaign in Normandy. Few new units, and few new skins but no decked out new faction to play as.
The game introduces a "Direct Fire" combat system where you get to control the unit's movement, when they shoot, etc- your FULLY in command.
New maps, and some new modes for Multiplayer. (Invasion)
That's the news.
