Company of Heroes 2 is free to download from Steam right now.

Pop over to Company of Heroes 2's Steam store page and you can nab the game for nothing as part of its fifth anniversary giveaway. Company of Heroes 2 came out in June 2013, so this particular anniversary is half a year late, but when free games are involved we're willing to forgive inaccurate anniversaries.

Company of Heroes 2 is Relic's World War 2 real-time strategy game. Our reviewer Stace Harman enjoyed it very much indeed, giving it 8/10.

"While Company of Heroes 2 sometimes makes you feel like you're fighting the game as well as the enemy, if you take time to understand the systems at work beneath the carnage and pick and choose your battles wisely, you will ultimately be rewarded by a deep and enjoyable RTS," Stace wrote.

This offer reminds us Relic's still dark following the 2017 release of Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War 3, a game that failed to generate an audience. Dawn of War 3 struggled so much, Relic itself left the game behind earlier this year.

This latest Company of Heroes 2 offer in mind, perhaps a third Company of Heroes game is in the offing...
