Company of Heroes (New Steam Version)

Unread postby Mearehear » 10 Apr 13, 10:02 pm

Was surprised to see this sitting in my Steam collection tonight (thread title).

Apparently its changes are:

- SEGA logo, not THQ
- no more log in needed, uses Steam account to play online
- All DLC included
- boot faster and load faster
- the same game as original CoH

Like the fact it uses our Steam details now, going to give it a reinstall as I never gave this game the time it deserved.

This is cool. I wonder if they will do anything with the DoW games.

Can you figure out where the new version is getting installed to? I'd like to try and copy some of the old folders over first so I don't have to download 10gb.
PLAYGUUU AAHHHH!

Sure can :) It has installed itself under C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Company of Heroes Relaunch

Download was 7.5GB, much smaller than the old download, they must have compressed it up better.

Yeah just the fact you dont need to sign into another account now, with it all run by Steam details, is good thing to me. Plus it is no longer three separate titles listed under Steam, they all go under just this one title. Will be giving it a play again now that it has reminded me of its existence :D

So what happens if you already have it on Steam? I picked up the series through the THQ humble bundle.

Friggin awesome, downloading now. Hoping COH2 goes this way to be able to play with friends etc from Steam. I remember buying the collectors edition back in the day, then got it on Steam for convenience when on sale. Loved the first & expansions, quite pumped for the second :)

This must be why my COH kept trying to update. Hopefully it doesn't affect the mods ive been playing.

Yeah, all of my COH on steam tried to redownload the entire games, and then this came out like two weeks later.

Not going to bother. I already had the games downloaded, then it wanted to 'update' them by downloading the whole games again, and now i have a new thing to download? :/
