There’s a lot of Company of Heroes available, and at a price point that’s difficult to resist.

Company of Heroes is one of the most popular strategy franchises around, and this year marks its 10-year anniversary. To celebrate, Relic and Sega have teamed up with the folks at Humble Bundle to offer a special bundle that collects the entire series and allows gamers to purchase it for a terrific price while supporting charity.
The Humble Company of Heroes Anniversary Bundle, as it is called, requires a minimum pledge of just $1. At that level, you’ll secure Company of Heroes, Company of Heroes: Opposing Fronts, Company of Heroes: Tales of Valor, and the Company of Heroes 2 – The Western Front Armies: Oberkommando West content.
You may already have that stuff in your library if you’ve been taking advantage of Humble Bundle for a while now, but things get exciting as you head to the next level. By paying more than the current average (just under $7.60 at present), you will gain access to Company of Heroes 2, Company of Heroes 2 – The Western Front Armies: US Forces, Company of Heroes 2 – Case Blue Mission Pack, Company of Heroes 2 – Southern Fronts Mission Pack, Company of Heroes 2 – Victory at Stalingrad Mission Pack, and the Company of Heroes 2 Soundtrack as a digital download.
Next up is the $10 pledge level, which adds Company of Heroes 2 – The British Forces, Company of Heroes 2 – Ardennes Assault, Company of Heroes 2 – Ardennes Assault: Fox Company Rangers, Company of Heroes 2 – Exclusive Skins Pack (a Humble Bundle exclusive), and the Company of Heroes Art Book as a digital download.
Finally, a special $30 level is also available, which nets you the exclusive Company of Heroes Bundle T-shirt. Whatever level you choose to pledge at, you’ll get a lot of great stuff for your money. Pledging at the $10 level or better secures you an estimated $218 worth of games.
If you haven’t yet purchased most or all of the Company of Heroes games featured in the special anniversary bundle, this is your chance to round out your collection while supporting the charity of your choice. Strategy games certainly aren’t for everyone, but if they’re something you tend to enjoy, definitely check out the promotion to see if it is of interest.
