Sega and Relic’s wartime strategy game, Company Of Heroes 2, is now free on Steam and anyone who downloads it can keep it permanently.

Steam has recently kicked off what it’s calling an Open World Sale, meaning discounts on games featuring open world environments. However, this sale also happens to coincide with a discount on real-time strategy game Company Of Heroes 2.

Sega and Relic Entertainment appear to be running their own independent sale, but theirs involves selling Company Of Heroes 2 at a discount of 100%. Yes, it is completely free to download, as well as the single-player Ardennes Assault DLC.

The offer will only last throughout this bank holiday weekend thhough and end on Thursday, June 3. But anyone who takes up the offer will still be allowed to keep them forever once they’re downloaded.

The rest of the Company Of Heroes franchise is being discounted too. Until June 3, you can purchase all of Company Of Heroes 2’s other DLC and the original game at up to 80% off.

This applies to the Case Blue Mission Pack as well, but Sega and Relic Entertainment are offering it for free to anyone who signs up for a special giveaway on the official website.

Set during the Second World War, Company Of Heroes 2 focuses on the Eastern Front. The game lets you take control of either the Russian or German armies, with subsequent DLC adding US and British forces. Aside from a single-player mode, the game features both cooperative and competitive online multiplayer.

It’s been nearly eight years since Company Of Heroes 2 released and there has so far been no sign of a sequel. And, for the time being, it will probably stay that way, as Relic Entertainment has its hands full developing Age Of Empires 4 for Microsoft.

Company Of Heroes 2 is available on PC.
