WWII Strategy Game 'Company of Heroes' Goes Live on Mac App Store

by

Aspyr has released Company of Heroes Complete: Campaign Edition for purchase on the Mac App Store for $49.99. [Direct Link]

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.


The game, which includes the single-player campaign plus all additional campaigns and content, has some fairly generous system requirements, allowing users of slightly older machines to play -- though the game was originally released for PC in 2006, so this isn't too much of a stretch. PC games arriving on the Mac in any form is impressive enough, though some publishers -- notably Blizzard -- still release their games on the same day across all platforms.

Minimum System Requirements:

Operating System: 10.6.8 (Snow Leopard), 10.7.2 (Lion)
CPU Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo (Dual-Core)
CPU Speed: 2.4 GHz
Memory: 2 GB RAM
Hard Disk Space: 13 GB
Video Card (ATI): Radeon HD 2600
Video Card (NVidia): Geforce 8600
Video Memory (VRam): 256MB

Company of Heroes Complete: Campaign Edition is available for $49.99 on the Mac App Store [Direct Link], Aspyr's GameAgent Store, Amazon.com, and other digital download stores.

The fact that I've never heard of this even though it was released 5 years ago doesn't speak to the port having been worth making...


A 93 on Metacritic for the PC version. Still in the top 10 PC games of all time at Gamerankings. Maybe there's stuff you just don't know about.

Very good game… but I don't feel like paying $50 to run it under OS X. Maybe $20 or $25.

Splinter Cell: Conviction was also released on the Mac App Store today: link (http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/tom-clancys-splinter-cell/id459028108?mt=12)

$49.99(tax not included) for a remake of the campaign.. The difference? It runs on OSX. No thanks. Try again at $9.99.

And before anyone comes in slamming the value of the price of the game and saying how ridiculously overpriced drivel this is for being on the Mac App Store, please note that all three games together on Steam is also $50 in total. Of course, the Mac version is only the "Campaign Edition" and you're losing out on multiplayer, but it's still not far off in terms of value compared to it's windows counterpart.

Played these on Windows and can't wait to add these to my Mac collection. Thanks Aspyr :)


So the Windows version only has multiplayer? Doesn't make much sense to leave this out of the Mac version.

I wish this was on Steam...I have the Windows version so I should get the Mac version as part of the deal (least that was Steam always does). This game is awesome and it plays fine in Parallels on my MacPro with nVidia 8800GT.
