The Company of Heroes Anthology contains three games from developer Relic: the original Company of Heroes and its expansion packs Opposing Fronts and Tales of Valor.

Company of Heroes is the PC game that lets you re-live all the events of June 6, 1944 in the most detail: detail that is sometimes mind-blowingly good (PC spec permitting) and horrifyingly, viscerally realistic, but in a good way, of course. COH is a real-time experience and WWII like you've not seen before, and while the game could never be as much fun as watching Kelly's Heroes on DVD for the umpteenth time (then again, if we're talking World War 2-based entertainment, what is?) the action within is worth 'shelling' out for.

In Opposing Fronts, it is the summer of 1944, the time for Allied forces to commence two key campaigns. The British 2nd Army fights to gain control of the city of Caen in Normandy, France after a failed D-Day liberation attempt. A road hub, perfect land for an airfield and the two waterways running by the city, makes Caen a vital objective. But such a key location is heavily protected. The 2nd Army must try and survive against the might of the opposing SS division.

Tales of Valor charges the players to take command of key soldiers across three unique campaigns and experience how they helped turn the tide of battle in some of the most historic and tide turning clashes of World War II. Tales of Valor offers three new multiplayer modes. You can choose between becoming a Tank Commander and square up to your friends in 'Panzerkrieg' mode; choose a unit of heroes and join the battle to push back the front lines of the enemy in 'Assault' mode; or team up with your friends to defend against waves of determined attackers in 'Stonewall'. If you are playing solo, you can choose to fight back against the overwhelming odds in new tactical campaigns for the Americans, the German Panzer Elite, and the German Wehrmacht Army.
