New Company of Heroes 2 trailer goes boom

New gameplay from a certain point of view.

THQ has released a new trailer for Company of Heroes 2, the Relic Entertainment-developed real-time strategy game due out on PC March 2013.

CoH2 is set in the Eastern Front during World War 2 and runs on Relic's Essence 3 game engine. You play the Russians as they battle against the German invasion.

THQ will be hoping Company of Heroes 2 pulls in the punters. The beleaguered publisher recently fended off a default on its credit facility with US bank Wells Fargo, reaching an agreement that means development on its upcoming games can continue.

THQ's release slate includes Company of Heroes 2, Metro: Last Light (both out March 2013) and South Park: The Stick of Truth (due out after March 2013).
