Company of Heroes 2 is actually pretty close to launch, with June being just around the corner and all. Today's video offers something a little different; not gameplay, but a more cinematic trailer, comprised of various bits from the campaign.
The basic idea here is that war is a terrible thing. Yeah, not that we need something so obvious explained to us, but it's always interesting when a game about war actually tries to deliver that message. Sure, you're playing a war game and likely getting a kick out of it too, but the soldiers that fight those wars are never quite the same.
That's the story being told in the trailer. War leads us to do horrible things, and good men cannot just sit idly by and forget.

The most recent Company of Heroes 2 announcement we heard involves the addition of a new mode, the Theater of War. This mode basically goes through a series of missions that cover some battles between the German and Russian forces not included in the main campaign. Co-op and single-player options were mentioned. Awesome.
