Feral Interactive has announced that it will bring the World War II real-time strategy game Company of Heroes to Android this year. The game was recently ported by Feral to the iPad, and so it makes sense that this mobile port will be tweaked to support phones, and luckily Android phones are part of this equation. So while we don't yet know when to expect the arrival of Company of Heroes on Android, at the very least, we now know the strategy game is coming sometime this year.
Feral Interactive is a quality port house that has brought some fantastic PC and console games to Android, such as Tropico, ROME: Total War, and GRID Autosport, which is precisely why I'm excited to hear that the studio will bring the real-time strategy game Company of Heroes to the Play Store in 2020.
While details are still light, we do know the Android version of Company of Heroes will arrive as a premium release, and so will be available at launch for $13.99. As it stands, we don't yet know what devices will be able to run the game, or when it will arrive, though I'm sure more details will slowly leak out as development moves forward, so make sure to keep your eyes peeled for further coverage in the coming months.
Company of Heroes coming to iPhone and Android later this year
Feral Interactive today announced that the critically-acclaimed World War II real-time strategy game Company of Heroes™ will be released later this year on iPhone and Android. Originally developed by Relic Entertainment and published by SEGA for Windows, Company of Heroes was previously brought to iPad by Feral Interactive, and is now being adapted for iPhone and Android.
A masterpiece of simulated warfare, Company of Heroes puts players in command of two companies of American soldiers, and challenges them to direct an intense squad-based campaign starting at the D-Day Invasion of Normandy. Fully tailored to and optimised for mobile devices, Company of Heroes features a sophisticated user interface that helps players execute real-time tactics, adapt to rapidly shifting combat environments, and overcome ferocious opposition to secure the liberation of France.
Company of Heroes will be a premium game available from the App Store and Google Play Store for $13.99 / £13.99 / €14,99 .
The game contains no microtransactions, and owners of the iPad version will be able to install the iPhone version at no extra cost.
Further information including release dates and supported devices will be announced in due course.
