Company of Heroes Update Adds Steam Workshop and Trading Card Support Over Ten Years After Release
Relic Entertainment and SEGA added Steam Workshop support and trading cards to Company of Heroes today over ten years after the title's initial release.
It has been over ten years since Relic Entertainment and SEGA released Company of Heroes on PC, but that hasn’t stopped the developers from releasing an update for the game today on PC that adds official modding and Steam Workshop support for the WWII RTS game.
As part of these added Steam Workshop capabilities, an in-game Workshop hub where one can play, share and manage their subscriptions to custom scenarios has also been added. Steam Trading Cards have also been added, which should entice completionists to come back to the game. The Eastern Front mod is also now officially available on Steam.
Justin Dowdeswell, a General Manager at Relic Entertainment, had the following to say about the game’s modding community:
“Company of Heroes players are still blowing us away with their creativity and support. We count ourselves very lucky to see the energy we put into building this game given right back to us by the players.”
Relic and SEGA are also currently holding a Steam sale for the entire Company of Heroes series through 10AM PT on June 5. Company of Heroes and Company of Heroes 2 and their expansions are all 75% off, while all of Company of Heroes 2′s paid-DLC and in-game store items are discounted by 66%
