Company of Heroes Complete: Campaign Edition lands on Mac App Store

Company of Heroes, one of best RTS games around and a personal favorite of mine, has landed on the Mac App Store. Published by Aspyre — a company that specializes in bringing great PC games to the Mac – Company of Heroes Complete: Campaign Edition includes the single player campaign from CoH, plus content and campaigns from the expansions CoH: Opposing Fronts and CoH: Tales of Valor.

Company of Heroes redefines real time strategy gaming by bringing the sacrifice of heroic soldiers, war-ravaged environments, and dynamic battlefields to life. Beginning with the D-Day Invasion of Normandy, players lead squads of Allied soldiers into battle against the German war machine through some of the most pivotal battles of WWII. Through a rich single player campaign, players experience the cinematic intensity and bravery of ordinary soldiers thrust into extraordinary events.

Company of Heroes Complete supports a number of video cards, including some of the older mid-range ones, so the game should run just fine even if you don’t have the latest iMacs/Macbooks. Granted, you’ll probably have to bump down the video settings in that case  in order to get the game running at an acceptable frame rate. And before you dive in and make the purchase [$49.99], just know that this is a Campaign Edition, so no multiplayer or skirmish mode unfortunately. Still, being able to play this fantastic WWII real-time strategy on the Mac is sweet enough. For those who’ve never had the pleasure of playing it on their PCs, check out the video below of the original CoH in action.
