One of those THQ types has stealthily infiltrated our forum to tell you that Company of Heroes now has DirectX 10 support.

Mysteriously disguised as "MisterTHQ", the phantom suggested you should head over to the official website to get hold of the patch.

Once installed you should see - if you've got one of those expensive graphics cards - improved model and map details, as well as an increase in lighting, shadows and overall image quality.

Company of Heroes is a real time strategy game so good that we awarded it the highest mark possible. Yes, it takes place in World War II, but it will far surpass your expectations.

THQ also recently announced that a new expansion pack called Opposing Fronts would be added to the game this autumn. It lets you take up arms as the German Panzer Elite or British 2nd army and fight through some of history's most famous moments.

Pop over to the official website for more information.

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. For more information, go here.
